Nature. My inspiration.

No matter where I go in Rosendal I am surrounded with magnificent scenery. A day doesn`t go by without me taking pictures with my Iphone or Nikon camera.

Recently I blew up my some of my favorite motives on matt aluminium to decorate white empty walls at a local hotell. I am so proud for this opportunity!

Rosendal Turisthotell, built in 1887, has just finished off a major renovation of their attic.  The earlier empty and raw attic is now 8 beautiful modern suites.

The interior in each room is simple but stylish. Each room has handknit pillows and blankets by Cosy Consept and lamps from Northern lighting.

I have added a motive or two in every room reminding the hotell visitors of the landscape right outside. And if they like the can buy the picture and take a little Rosendal with them back home! This photo project is a cooperation with FotoKnudsen.

Here are three of the rooms!

Welcome to Rosendal.

2) On the way up to Hattebergfossen. The cloudy but bright sky made the green so green! And those branches are from the last storm.

Winter palm

_DSC6539

I love this palm I bought last summer. Beautiful in the sun. Even more beautiful out in the snow.

I found it hard to believe it tolerates the cold so well, but it is a impressing little robust palmtree.

Etna terraccepalm (Chamaerops humilis var. Etna) is its name, originally from Sicilia.

And I must mention it has survived two hurricanes in the west, Rosendal where I live!

Now, that is a good buy!

A classic relaunch- Cathrineholm

Cathrineholm_Miljø_All_Multi

In April 2016 Imerco is relaunching the familiar enamelled bowls from Cathrineholm. At their birth back in 1960 they became a success in Scandinavia and the US. Behind this enamell success stood Scandinavias unofficial design queen, jeweler and artist Grete Prytz Kittelsen . These 60ties enamelled bowls and saucepans are design icons and collectibles to this day. 

If you can`t find an old one, now you can get a new one!

My favorite? The sea green! What’s your Favourite?

Nye fotostyling kurs på gang nå som våren nærmer seg!

Lær å skap fine komposisjoner! Fin din egen styling stil eller bli tryggere på den du har!

Kurset gir også et innblikk i hvordan det er å jobbe som stylist. Hvordan samarbeide med fotografen. Hvordan selge man inn seg selv? Hva er stylistens oppgave? Hvor finner man jobbene? Hvor låner man produkter og hvordan?  Hvordan jobbe for å få en fot innenfor i bransjen. Og ikke minst hvordan få til fine grupperinger i hjemmet og lage gode motiver til sosiale medier og blogg.

Jeg tar opp eksempler fra virkeligheten fra magasiner, reklame, utstillingsvinduer og styling i feks. eget hjem. Tema, komposisjon, detaljer, utsnitt, farger og materialer er alle viktige faktorer å tenke på.

“Kurset var utrolig bra! Veldig konkret og “matnyttig”. Jeg følte jeg fikk veldig godt utbytte av det.”  May Hege Paulsen, kursdeltaker.

“Jeg fikk masse inspirasjon! Og jeg lærte masse om komposisjon og plassering av ting i bilder.” Ann Merete Slåttland, kursdeltaker.

Fotostyling 1 -10 mars.

Påbyggingsdel fotostyling 2 -14 mars.
