Who am I?

Greetings and welcome to my photography blog. This is the place where I scribble about photography – mostly related to analogue photography, but I will be sneaking in digital stuff here and there too. I will try to make the articles educational, so they are useful for others besides me.

First of all, why is this a .dk site when I write in English? Well, because I am Danish and I am not a company. This is a personal blog.

Born in 1982, I was brought up in a world with enormous technological advances. The first personal computers found their way in to private homes, cameras got autofocus and became digital, televisions became larger than life itself and cell phones became a must in every pocket.

I was hooked on everything computerized. Nerding and coding away and started studying computer science at university. Dropped out and got an apprentiseship as a cabinet maker. My childhood creativity was reborn. During this time, I got my first digital SLR. Never finished that apprentiseshipbthough, but got into professional body piercing instead. I worked for several years in a reputable piercing studio in Copenhagen.

My then girlfriend, now wife got me to actually use my camera and taught me the basics in shooting and editing. I shot a shitload of models the following years. And then it stopped. I sort of rebooted and started shooting everything but models, exploring techniques and new expressions.

In 2015, I got back into film photography. I say back, because I, of course, had a 35mm point and shoot camera as a child. At about the same time, I started shooting people again. Portraits this time. I also started a new education – “pedagogical assistant”, which I finished in 2018. I now work at a home for people with aquired brain damage and try to shoot as much as I can in my spare time. I’m a nerd and I love reading and studying all different aspects of photography. I love fiddling with gear to see if something broken is fixable or easily adaptable to something else.

I slowly shot more and more film and less and less digital. And now, I only shoot digital when it has to be easy, fast and I don’t want to invest too much time and money into it.

I love film!
