Amsterdam perfectly represents it’s stereotype. From my short visit, what I remember most are busy streets filled with bicycles, cheese and tulips. It’s everywhere. And virtually all the streets in the city center are draped in quaint 17th century facades. It amuses me how concentrated some European cities are, and the things we’ve heard of them, things I thought was just an exaggeration or a caricature, is reality.
Wow, it’s been over six months since I went to Greece, and just now I’m finalising this blogpost. Right in the middle of my busiest time at University. I’ve got only 4 weeks left of trimester two, and it’s terrifying! I think this is called procrastination. Anyways, I just wanted to blog, becasue it’s a shame if these colourful and perfectly scanned (thanks Carmencita Film Lab, once again) images were just lost on a hard drive.
I’ve had a fantastically busy summer, and I loved it! Luckily, I managed to have one day of complete and utter me-time in July, and here’s the result; I visited one of the Norwegian fiords Lysefjorden and I ventured to see the iconic Kjeragbolten in 15 m/s wind and with only my sturdy Nikon F4 as companion.
So technically these photos are not shot on film, which kind of was the idea behind the Explore Section of my blog, but I really wanted to do something different with the photos from these amazing ruins. And to be honest I couldn’t wait for the photos to be developed before I showed them off!
I have known since I started my photography business full-time June 2014 that I wanted to be self employed, and combine my different skills and passions into a sustainable business. Because I didn’t have time to take a step back and analyse the situation + prepare before my big move to Scotland, I actually just had to take a corporate job in a big multinational company. The incentive for this was primarily financial, and it has made me feel like a failure.
Behold, for I am rebranding, moving, repurposing my business. In another country. I’m relocating from Gjøvik, Norway to Edinburgh, Scotland. Come with me on my adventure on this brand new blog, with my brand new message, look and approach. Branding and logo to follow.
This sudden change calls for desperate measures. I, a creative soul who hasn’t yet figured out what to become when I grow up, needs to continue with that in a brand new city. I’m 26 and still feel there’s just got to be more. So where is this taking me?
I had just attended an amazing workshop with The Norwegian Wedding Magazine, feeling super inspired by Isabelle Hesselberg from 2Brides and Siegrid Cain, and bought my Nikon F4 shortly after. So this is the first EVER go I had with my film camrea for private affairs. And we went to Rome.
