About me

Welcome to my profile!

Time flies :-)

It is now 2020, the kids have moved from home and I have become a grand dad.

Equipment upgraded several times along with the technological development

Actually, I had forgot about my profile here and I have mainly been using Instagram and/or Facebook to share my pictures.

-------- from 2006 --------

I was born in 1963 in Denmark. I’m married and we have three wonderful girls born in 1992, 1997 and 2003.

In my early years I spent a lot of time with old fashion photo development. That was great. Exposing light on a piece of paper and then getting a picture – magic!

Then I forgot everything about photos. I started my education, my working life and later on me and my wife started a family :-)

Then, when our first daughter was born back in 1992 I started out again but only as a kind of documentary process with photos and videos. Great stuff watching - but only if you are a part of the family! At you own responsibility you can enter my private site:
Beware - it’s in Danish!

In November 2004 I bought a Nikon D70. That was kind of obligating. The first four months of my ownership I shot about 7000 pictures and deleted at least half of them.

I began to see an interest in the picture itself. I started thinking that a picture was not only to be seen as a documentary item. It was a lot more fun to be watching a picture that beside of being a mark of time was exposing feelings attitudes and moods.

I haven’t got it yet – the picture that shows the moment I lived in when I took it. I mostly get a weak photographic copy of it – but I’m still working on it.

Picture you life - and get a picture of it!

Best regards Ole

    Hi Ole , I've just been reading your profile . Photos are only part of the interest at fotocommunity , people who produce them are also fascinating . You are wrong about your family photos being interesting only to your family . The original purpose of photography was to explain and thereby share the beauty and joy of the moment . Anybody who sees a photo of your children (for example) understands a bit how you see and enjoy them . By the way , we have not seen you oldest yet .
