"I am a self-taught photographer currently based in Vancouver, British Columbia. I grew up on the Danish west coast, sailing and surfing the cold waters of the North Sea. After finishing school I moved to Norway to pursue my childhood dream of living in the mountains, and for 5 years I worked there as a guide in the mountains and on the rivers. It was here I started to document my experiences as a way of inspiring people to take advantage of life's more simple joys.
Specialized in cold, wet, windblown and dramatic places, my curiosity and adventure lust take me around the world in search of remote places and unique moments to capture and share."
