I am a professional lifestyle and portrait photographer. Recently, I have also worked on specialising in fitness and health photography as I have a big interest in the people involved from weekend warriors to athletes. I live in the very leafy and gorgeous Richmond, South West London.
Photography has been a huge part of my life since my early teens and I love that I can work as a commercial photographer in London, one of the coolest and most vibrant cities in the world. My career as a freelance photographer started in a London based studio in Kennington but my story starts in Copenhagen where I was born. In the early 90’s I studied in Sheffield and Newcastle before working as an assistant in London and starting my own business.
I am an experienced photographer and my photography has covered an array of different clients over the years each with their challenges and outcomes. I get regular work from a local blogger, marketing jobs for fitness studios and I recently got booked for a lifestyle and portrait shoot for Imedeen. I enjoy getting involved in the variety and challenges that each different job offers.
Not all jobs requires big planning but for some lifestyle and portrait photography jobs I plan the pre-production like castings to find models for the shoot, I source locations, book stylists, assistants, hair & make-up, catering & model makers. I also arrange all the post-production, either to be done in-house or with the clients own specialists. I love, that being a photographer I not only specialise in lifestyle and portrait photography but that I can work as part of a team either on location or in the studio.
My images are described as: ‘fresh, energetic and colourful’ and I keep to at least one of those themes, if I can! I am really proud to have been part of some great commercial campaigns and I have seen my pictures on large bill posters, annual reports, consumer and trade magazines, social media, blogs, brochures, National press, posters and Gatwick Airport. But I am equally proud of doing the lifestyle and portrait photography for a start-up company.
My interest in photographing fitness and health came about when a friend asked me to join her in a triathlon. I had done a few running events but the triathlon scene opened my eyes to the wider aspects of sport and fitness. It is with great enjoyment I see the world embracing fitness with style, clothing, sports equipment, nutrition, health, food and travel. I would love to have a bigger part of photographing the buoyant fitness and lifestyle market that's out there. Check out my Instagram page for posts on photography, fitness & some food!
I hope you enjoy looking at the images in the galleries. If you have a project in mind write to me on firstname.lastname@example.org and let's talk.
