Hi. I'm a Director of Photography and cinematographer shooting fiction films, documentaries, art films, music videos and commercials, focusing on high quality cinematography. I have work experience with different artists, directors and producers with a broad range of production scales and formats, taking cinematic responsibility for hundreds of film projects. Currently working on a historic TV-series documentary about the migration age that lasted from AD 375 - 568.

Even though I am based in Oslo I have production experience from around the world. Such as Italy, Spain, Austria, Poland, Greece, United Kingdom, Ireland, United States, Hungary, Czech Republic, Egypt, Thailand, Scandinavia, Costa Rica and Trinidad & Tobago.

Being an alumnus of the Nordic Institute of Stage and Studio with bachelor degree in cinematography and master classes by Ping Bin Lee and Roger Deakins, first assistant and second unit dop for cinematographes like Hoyte Van Hoytema and Harald Gunnar Paalgaard have inspired me in the making of moving images.

Capturing light, creating art.

I'm a member of The Norwegian Society of Cinematographers,

a division of IMAGO - International Federation of Cinematographers.
