For as long as I can remember I’ve always had a fascination and love for photography. My first camera was a Kodak Instamatic 100 which my parents gave me for my 6th birthday. Since then I’ve had many different photography “phases” including travelling around Europe on a train as a teenager doing black and white photography. My mother was not too happy about this phase as I would return every two or three weeks to Denmark and turn one of her bathrooms into a fulltime darkroom. I also had a long stint with slide film in the late 70ies and 80ies when I was working in Australia, the North-Sea and Canada doing everything from shearing sheep, operating cranes, driving trucks and computer programming.

Primarily my photography is art photography blended with some project work and photo montages (slide shows). I focus mostly on night, nature and architecture photography much of which I turn into slide shows set to music
