I am a travel and lifestyle photographer based in Copenhagen, Denmark. I capture moments from near and far, with a light setup that I can carry around with me in a backpack.
My gear collection is small, but just perfect for me. I’ve never been into growing an elaborate gear collection – I work with my motifs, the framing and light. The lenses I have are merely mediators of what my eyes see.
I tell my visual stories from different angles, with a style influenced by my background in landscape architecture and graphic design. During my studies, photography was very much a means of communication, which still translates into my photography now, both through the use of colour and the composition of every frame.
I prefer using prime lenses, zooming with my feet, in dialogue with the surroundings of where I am at and the light present at that very moment. My camera is always in my hands, meaning I only use the tripod for interior and still life shots. Photographing has encouraged me to explore more, and extending my gear from a phone to a full-frame has taught me so much, and still continues to.
I upgraded from a Sony Alpha 6000 a couple of years ago, and this has by far been one of the best investments I’ve made. It’s compact, light and mirrorless. I’ve learnt so much from using this camera and rarely go anywhere without it. I bought it second hand from a photo store, and spent the money I saved on lenses.
Sigma 50mm f/1.4
This is my absolute favourite lens. When it’s not on the camera, I miss it. I’m blown away over how well the colours translate and the sharpness of my pictures. The price point too was incredible, compared to my other lenses. Although it’s big and heavy, it doesn’t stop me from taking it with me on my trips.
Sony 16-35mm f/2.8
I figured out I needed the wide angle during a trip to Scotland, photographing the Glenfinnan Viaduct. Since then I use this for vast landscape, city architecture and interior.
I love this lens, however, I find that I don’t use it as much as I’d like to. The challenge this year will be to get it more into play.
