A very special (and long) commercial

This must be the longest commercial I have come across. And certainly the longest with no dialog!

Soria Moria

"Far, far away he saw something shining and glimmering"

The Soria Moria palace is a Norwegian fairy tale about a shining city far away up behind the mountains. It is also a series of illustrations made by Norwegian Theodor Kittelsen.

When I saw the evening sun hitting the top of the mountains, I immediately remembered the story and the drawings. It is not difficult to think that people a long time ago would believe that the reflections came from a fantastic city and they made all kinds of stories about it! And this fairy tale has all - a wonderful city, poor people, trolls and princesses.

Romedalen

I first visited this valley 8 years ago. Then it was early spring and still some snow around. But this time I got the fading autumn colors on a very quiet Sunday together with a couple of friends. This valley is the result of a glacier pushing through the landscape thousands of years ago, then pulling back to reveal this big U-shape.

Autumn river

The colors are at their peak, but so is the rain! I was setting up on a rock in the middle of this river and it suddenly started raining. So after two images, I was forced to run for cover.

Fjords and beyond

Taking a break from editing video today, I went to find the place where my great-grandfather was born. The people living there are my distant relatives and welcomed me to look around and take pictures. Thank you very much for your hospitality!

This is from one of the oldest houses at the farm and it is where they stored food. Made from logs, it is still a solid house! The view is simply amazing and the framing was just there :-)

The Professor

Bob Kerr and his Whoopee Band, a British jazz band/show/performance, visited Volda last week, and I was lucky enough to get total access to take pictures. The whole show was crazy and very visual as you can see :-) And a dream to photograph. Did the whole concert with a 50 mm 1.4 if you are into photography!

Location: Rokken in Volda, Norway.

Molboerne

One of the projects I worked on a long time ago! I got it from Peter Bjørn Nielsen on Betacam SP and transferred it to the computer via a BlackMagic Teranex converter. The result is looking great! Converted to MPG4 in Davinci Resolve.

+Mark Hurn I agree. And I am very happy with the quality I got from this. Now I just have to dig out more tapes!

Darkness is getting closer

From the trip yesterday where the last glow of the sun can be seen through the cloud around one of the mountains in Romedalen, close to Volda. In just a few weeks, these mountains will once again be covered in snow.

Full moon over Itajubá

It has been a while since I posted here now, but it is time to get back into the habit :-)

Yesterday, I had the great pleasure of visiting some friends in Itajubá. Big thanks to photographer +Belmira McLeod and her husband for a great evening! I also got a few good shots of the rising moon from their house. I think the clouds add nicely to the dramatic effect.

Check www.oceanwatcher.com for more images from Brazil and Norway.

Sunset rocks

I had actually been scouting this location a few weeks back, but the light and timing did not come together until yesterday. I had a few minutes to spare, got the tripod and my Nikon and got the shot.

Sometimes a few rocks can make a picture :-)

Location: Volda, Norway

Introduction
WORK
The area I live in has a very high technological level. A great workforce and great universities. We also have what is called the "Silicon Valley of Brazil" only 20 minutes from here. It is the perfect area for any foreign company to find partners for business.

I have spent the last 20 years in the area of communication. Mainly broadcast tv, editing, film, but also internet. And I really enjoy these areas coming more and more together. Seems like all forms of communication are melting together these days and we get possibilities we could only dream about when I started out!

ACI - Avid Certified Instructor - Please contact me for more details about official Avid MediaComposer training. I am comfortable doing the training in either Norwegian or English, but will be happy to mix in some Portuguese to the best of my ability.

INSPIRATION
I bring my camera with me as often as I can. The best camera is the one you have with you! It is my way of saving some moments. But to me, photography is not decoupled from enjoying the moment. I can walk around for a long time without even taking my camera out, just breathing in the things that are happening around me.

I do have a website set up for some of my pictures, www.oceanwatcher.com . Go there and have a look!

And in between all this digital life, I have a passion for one of the most analogue things there is - cooking. Brazil really has an abundance of products to cook from and I am enjoying it a lot. Even a small garden here can have a variety of fruit trees - mango, avocado, papaya, lime, lemons, oranges, figs and most of them can even be found in several varieties. I sometimes feel like a child discovering all these things. My latest adventure has been starting a small herb garden in the hope I will be able to grow enough for my own use.

Another analog activity is playing golf. I have not played as much as I wanted over the last couple of years, but I love every round I am able to play!
