I grew up in Norway and had an early interest for arts and media; especially photography. I saved up for a professional camera at the age of 15, and quite quickly built a reputation as a local photographer. When I left for University in 2012, there was nothing more natural to do than to study the arts further. In 2015, I graduated from Falmouth University, UK, with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Photography.
During my degree, I seemed to spend more time filming on the side of my studies, than to do my actual University-work, so in 2016, I started a Masters degree in Film and Television; expanding my Photography skills, learning a new type of cameras and a new way of working.
While the visual part of my work has always been in the centre, I have also gained experience in audio recording, both on location and in studio. Editing skills and a certification in Adobe Premiere Pro. Project managing and the logistics behind pre-production. Scriptwriting and audience understanding.
During my latest degree, I also had a few work opportunities that I couldn’t let pass. I worked as an Assistant Director on “Wilderness”, a ‘School of Film and Television’ in-house production feature film. (World Premiere at Cinequest Film Festival and European Premiere at Dingle Film Festival, March 2017). I also spent time expanding my skills and network, working at Eden Sessions 2017 (BBC MUSIC) and as a camera trainee on a promising feature film shot on super-16, picking up useful skills from Mary Farbrother (Director of Photography) and Focus Puller, Eve Carreño.
After a quick break, saving some money in Norway and backpacking Central America, I’m back in work-mode and ready to properly kick off my career.
