New Work – Signal

A signal as referred to in communication systems, signal processing, and electrical engineering is a function that “conveys information about the behavior or attributes of some phenomenon”. In the physical world, any quantity exhibiting variation in time or variation in space (such as an image) is potentially a signal that might provide information on the status of a physical system, or convey a message between observers, among other possibilities.

New Work – Remains

 

New Work: REMAINS

The series Remains portrays a handful of World War II bunkers located on the Danish West Coast in the Oksbøl Military Firing Range close to Blåvandshug. The firing range is the largest of its kind in Denmark. 
The bunkers were part of the Nazi regimes Atlantic Wall, stretching along the coast from Norway in the North, all the way to the Spanish border in the South. Close to 5000 kilometres of concrete fortifications and other defensive measures.
The bunkers exhibited in this series were all originally built in the sand dunes but are now, after decades of erosion and exposure to the elements, slowly being swallowed up by the Atlantic Ocean
It is unknown how long these relics will remain. For now they still stand as a strong reminder of the past.

New Work – Into The Woods

Like any dating profile with a decent amount of respect for themselves I too, besides red wine and sunsets, also enjoy wandering in the woods… Sometimes I bring a camera. Occasionally I even take a picture… or two. This is a collection of some of them.

Enjoy!

Personal Work – Tree Study

We have just had another beautiful fog rolling in over Vancouver and it reminded me that it was about time to share this series which I photographed back in January on yet another foggy Vancovuer day.

The series is of trees… and if you have been following my work you might remember that this has been my subject matter in the past as well… for some reason I’m very drawn to these when they are singled out and separated by a soft misty background.

If you want to see my older series of trees you can see it HERE.

In other news I have a few more features which I will be sharing this next little while so stay tuned… you could subscribe to the blog HERE if you wanna make sure not to miss it;)

EDIT: Forgot to mention that if your in the Vancouver area there is an amazing gallery show opening on Friday the 13th by photographer Wayne A. Hoecherl. For the past year, Wayne has invited male subjects to participate in this ongoing series of black and white portraits, which has culminated in a collection of over 150 images. There should be an image of me in there as well. The show is at Photohaus Gallery (14 West 7th Avenue, Vancouver), more details HERE and HERE.

 

Anyways, enjoy my new personal work below…

Black Rocks, Ucluelet

I had the chance to revisit Tofino and its surrounding areas again this summer, I absolutely love it out there! And between all the surfing, breathtaking nature and great local foods, there was off course time to do some photos as well. This little mini series was done by the black rocks close to the Amphitrite Lighthouse by Ucluelet, about 1/2 an hours drive from Tofino.

 

Enjoy.

Cloud Study

Hi there,

The end of summer is unfortunately near(at least in our part of the world), I hope you all have enjoyed it! I have had a fabulous and busy summer here in Vancouver with lots of travel, photography projects and commercial work.

Anyways, I thought I would share this little mini series that I recently shot during a trip up to Powell River, Canada. Back and forth from Vancouver it makes a total of 4 ferry rides. And guess what… these are all shot from one of these rides… The clouds, light and mountains were absolutely amazing and I feel these photographs really showcase their raw beauty. This past year I have been shooting a lot of work in my studio here in Vancouver so it’s been great to get outside and shoot these past months.

Btw, you might have seen some teasers from this series if you follow me on Instagram, Facebook or Behance.
