A little more about me:
In some capacity, I’ve been photographing for most of my life, but formally since January 2007. I was originally drawn to photojournalism, street photography, and documentary photography, which are still my first loves. I love capturing real moments, real emotions, real people.
For the past three years, however, I’ve been focusing on fashion, lifestyle, and beauty photography. Instead of being a silent documenteur, I now have control over every aspect of the photograph. It’s an exciting challenge and I love what I do.
I also shoot: actor’s headshots, corporate headshots, engagement portraits, anything with a face….you name it! And guess what…I shoot weddings too! I was surprised to discover that I actually quite enjoy photographing weddings. They’re a magical blend of photojournalism and portraiture and, let’s face it, I’m a hopeless romantic and love photographing true love. Cheesy, but true :)
I also work on the other side of the camera as a model, represented by Stewart Talent and Shirley Hamilton. Knowing first-hand what the model is thinking and feeling is a huge advantage to me as a photographer. And of course it’s been a fun ride too, and I plan to do it as long as possible!
Oh, and if you’re Danish and think I look familiar….yes, I’m a cast member on the show “Alt for Danmark” :) Jeg elsker Danmark!
Thanks for reading my blog. If you’re ever in Chicago, I hope to get to know you through my lens.
(Psst, one last thing—my name is pronounced pay-tra)
