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 making black and white photographs.  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 full-time darkroom.  After that I had a long stint with slide film in the late seventies and eighties when I was living and working in Europe, Australia and Canada and doing everything from studying classical piano to truck driving.

Since 2009 I have focused exclusively on photography both formally, obtaining a BFA mostly focused on photography and printmaking, and informally through photography workshops and travels.   Simply put; experience brings perspective and every picture I make is the sum total of my life and studies until now!

If you find that you are interested in some of my work, beyond what is offered by my site, or would like to engage me in project work please drop me a line at [email protected] Also, I would love it if you would sign my guestbook or check out my Blog.
