    This was filmed between 29th April and 10th May 2011 in the Arctic, on
    the archipelago Lofoten in Norway.

    My favorite natural phenomenon is one I do not even know the name of, even after talking to meteorologists and astrophysicists I am none the wiser.What I am talking about I have decided to call The Arctic Light and it is a natural phenomenon occurring 2-4 weeks before you can see the Midnight Sun.

    The Sunset and Sunrise are connected in one magnificent show of color and light lasting from 8 to 12 hours. The sun is barely going below the horizon before coming up again. This is the most colorful light that I know, and the main reason I have been going up there for the last 4 years, at the exact
    same time of year, to photograph. Based on previous experience, I knew this was going to be a very
    difficult trip. Having lost a couple of cameras and some other equipment up there before, it was crucial to bring an extra set of everything. I also
    made sure I had plenty of time in case something went wrong.
    If you can imagine roping down mountain cliffs, or jumping around on slippery rocks covered in seaweed with 2 tripods, a rail, a controller,
    camera, lenses, filters and rigging for 4-5 hour long sequences at a time, and then
    having to calculate the rise and fall of the tides in order to capture the essence - it all proved bit of a challenge.

    And almost as if planned, the trip would turn out to become very
    difficult indeed. I had numerous setbacks including: airline lost my
    luggage, struggling to swim ashore after falling into the Arctic sea: twice, breaking lenses, filters, tripod, computer, losing the whole dolly rig and controller into the sea, and even falling off a rather tall rock and ending
    up in the hospital. As much as I wanted to give up, the best way Out is
    always “Through”. I am glad I stuck it through though because there were some amazing sunrises waiting. At 1:06 you see a single scene from day to night to day which is from 9pm to 7am. Think about that for a minute.. 10 hours with light like that.

    I asked the very talented Marika Takeuchi to specifically compose and
    perform a song for this movie, and what she came up with is absolutely remarkable. Thank you very much Marika!

  2. Hiking- and climbingtrip to Dovrefjell together with Odd Arne, Johnny and Ole. We drove to Hjerkinn Wednesday evening.
    Took the bus through the wildlife reserve area and up to the "Snøheim" lodge where we spent the night.
    We did the classic traverse of the Snøhetta-massif going from the main summit (2286m) and westwards.
    After the hike over to "Midttoppen" there were two climbing sections. First to "Hettpiggen" and second to "Vesttoppen", with a rappel in between. Me and Odd Arne formed the first rope party, while Johnny and Ole followed. Naturally, we shared ropes on the rappel.
    We climbed the "Hettpiggen" ascent in one pitch, while the climb to "Vesttoppen" were done in three pitches.

    The weather were our biggest concern beforehand, and we had braced ourselves for a lot of rain.
    And sure enough, the rain was pouring when we arrived at the lodge the night before.
    So the joy of climbing dry rock was even bigger!
    The fog drifting in and out created many magical moments :-)

    This is a time-lapse video resulting from a 15,000 km (almost 10,000 miles) long road trip and tens of thousands of images taken along the way over the last 5 months. The journey has covered all of Norway’s 19 counties, from the far south to the Russian border in the Northeast.

    The aim of this 5 minute short film is to show the variety of Norway, everything from the deep fjords in the Southwest, to the moon landscape in the North, the Aurora Borealis (Nothern Lights) and the settlements and cities around the country, both in summer and wintertime. The video shows some of the most scenic places in Norway, such as Lofoten, Senja, Helgelandskysten, Geirangerfjorden, Nærøyfjorden and Preikestolen.

  4. There are numerous time lapse videos of Iceland and Norway showing the beauty of their remote landscapes. But when you're in the mountains, looking down, you see so many things happening. Especially in places like Geiranger (Norway) where ferries are sailing back and forth through the fjords, kayak cruises arriving and departing and cars crawling up and down the steep roads. I wanted to portray this like you are watching an ants hill, which gives such a funny perspective on things.

    To answer some photographers questions. All footage is shot with the Panasonice GH3, Canon 7D and 650D. Most footage in Norway on the 7D with the 50mm f1.8. Interval 1 image p/s with intervalometer. In Iceland I have mainly used the GH3 with continuous shutter. Lenses on the GH3 were the Voightländer 25mm f0.95 and the Lumix 35-100. The tilt shift effect is added in post with Lens blur and a keyframed depth pass.
