Exploring Copenhagen with Manfrotto

Exploring Copenhagen with Manfrotto

Earlier this year, camera equipment company Manfrotto asked me if I'd be interested in working with them on the launch of their newest camera bag collection 'Manhattan'. Since this brand is one of the best in their field, and I'm already using some of their gear for work (their tripods are stellar!), it didn't take us long to agree on a mini city guide to a photographer's day in Copenhagen. I'd been looking forward to this shoot ...

Redefining Ordinary Copenhagen with Canon

Redefining Ordinary Copenhagen with Canon

As you may have noticed via my Instagram profile, I am currently working with Canon on a large campaign in which we set out to 'redefine ordinary'. The reason for this is that Canon has just launched the brand new EOS M5; a compact camera that has already became a good friend of mine over these past few weeks. As some of you photographers out there might agree, lugging around a heavy DSLR isn't always carefree, and quite often, my back and shoulders suffer from the extra weight ...

Vipp Shelter

Vipp Shelter

A visit to the Vipp Shelter in Sweden has long been on my wish list and this December, I finally got the chance to go. I worked with Vipp on an Advent calendar posted on my Instagram account, and one Sunday, a lucky follower of mine was treated to a night at the shelter. Of course, I couldn't promote a stay here without having experienced it or photographed it myself ...

Los Angeles City Guide

Los Angeles City Guide

When telling my friends of our upcoming trip to Los Angeles, I was met by the same expression more than once. They raised their brows as if to say: “Los Angeles? You mean the city of all things Hollywood-rich-and-famous-show-business? Really?” One was even blunt enough to ask me out loud. I sort of see where they were coming from ...

Bergen

Bergen

Fjords are verywhere in Bergen. Dotted with tiny houses along the shores, or grass covered cliffs too steep to occupy. A majestic backdrop to the quiant and charming city, I always imagined Bergen to mainly cater for the outdoorsy traveler coming for the hikes. Add hoards of cruise guests invading the city and sailing away at dusk, and I was positive that the city up north was...

Bornholm

Bornholm

I read somewhere recently that the quality conscious foodies of the world have now collectively announced Copenhagen old news and are instead hopping on the boat to Bornholm located in the Baltic Sea. Though this might be overstating it, I sort of see why. The Danish island with its fields covered in poppies and corn flowers, colourful little towns, and not to forget ...

Matcha Bar by Menu

Matcha Bar by Menu

First off: I can't believe it's been four months since my last post! This blog has been neglected big time, and it's about time it's brought back to life (because I really like it here). The reason for my absence is the same old one.. I have been busy with work which, as a freelancer, is a pretty good situation to be in. But when work means writing and photographing for a living ...

Hamburg

Hamburg

Two weeks ago, I received an email from DSB (Danish railways) asking if I would be interested in taking the train to Hamburg to photograph the city for them. Discovering new cities and doing so with a camera around my neck is pretty much my favourite thing to do for work, so I jumped at the opportunity. Just a few days later I found myself on the Central Station ...

Dubai

Dubai

Honestly, I don't know if I'm ever going back to Dubai. I think, for me, it was probably a once in a lifetime experience. But that doesn't change the fact that Dubai is a spectacular place, one of a kind. It was overwhelming, mind-blowing, thought-provoking and definitely over the top — exactly how I had imagined it. And of course it was much more than that, because there are always two sides to every story, city and people ...

Paris

Paris

I love Paris for many reasons. I love that the city is so picturesque and not just in the touristy parts of town. I love that the Parisians' English is still generally so bad it forces me to speak the French I've almost forgotten. I love that Paris has been the world's most fashionable destination for hundreds of years but still kept its charm ...

Hotel sp34

Hotel sp34

Despite being a capital with an abundance of great design, finding a beautiful and affordable hotel to stay at is not necessarily that easy here in Copenhagen. Most of these come with a price tag or a location that is a bit too far out in case you're just in town for a few days and don't want to spend too much precious time on the subway. Which is why this relatively new Hotel SP34 is a great choice ...

Swiss alps with Olympus

Swiss alps with Olympus

A couple of months ago, I received an email asking if I wanted to go to Madeira for a weekend to shoot with a new Olympus camera and share some of the photos on Instagram. Beautiful weather, sandy beaches and Portuguese specialities during what feels like the longest Danish winter in a long time? Yes, please! However, just a couple of weeks before departure, our destination was changed ...

Stockholm

Stockholm

I'm not sure if it's the beautiful forest lakes surrounded by red-painted houses, the fashionable Swedes or just that our neighbours always seem to be on the forefront of a lot of things, but Sweden has always fascinated me. Whether it's in politics, design, or food trends, the Swedes know what they're doing, and even though the political correctness is somewhat of a running joke here in Denmark, I often find it quite admirable. So, ever since I got lost in Knausgård's books about his life in Sweden ...

Botanical Garden

There is something magical about botanical gardens, and this one in the center of Copenhagen is no exception. Ever since I went here on an overcast day this Spring to shoot it for an Instagram guide to Copenhagen for Guided by Cereal (some of you might recognize the first photo in this post), I have been meaning to go back and take some photos of the greenhouses from the inside ...

Round Tower

Round Tower

Back in Copenhagen. Back to real life, overpriced coffee, everyone looking beautiful and exactly the same, dark afternoons and freezing nights, quiet streets in the city center and a very low-key ambiance all over the city. No more wonderfully weird New Yorkers, no more exploring new neighborhoods, no more of that breathtaking skyline as a constant reminder of the many different lives in that huge city ...
