When a company builds a new powerplant in a river, it is interesting news for engineers. That’s why Teknisk Ukeblad needs to cover a story like that. But a worksite like that isn’t very interesting for other people, I guess. I mean, it looks like any building site, except for the large amounts of water flowing through parts of the new concrete dam. Just to try something else, I took all my photos in black and white. For the first time, Teknisk Ukeblad made a story without colors. Fascinating.

It’s not all about oil and gas

Offshore Northern Seas – a large event for people working in the oil business. More than 50.000 people have come to the already oil-saturated city of Stavanger. They are there to show the rest of the business what they do. They also try to make new business, and to screw other peoples business. This is the oil industry celebrating themselves, discussing how they can pump up even more of this carbon-based black gooey stuff, that will destroy our planet unless we stop using it very soon. I was there, and I took some pictures. Here they are:

Technology and so on…

back again

I haven’t been updating my blog in a while. Lazyness, being busy, moving between different parts of Norway, and also internally in Oslo could be the reason. Also, I haven’t been sure what to blog about, really. Seeing my former classmates doing all kinds of regular photojournalism, while I keep taking pictures of pipelines and CEOs, didn’t really make me want to publish what I was doing. But that’s all going to change. Just like all other mediocre blogs, I now promise to start updating again.

First: a picture!

My first exposure: from the metro system of Oslo.

But first, let me tell you where photojournalism brought me since last time, that was the Pstereo festival, august 2011. After finishing my summer job at Adresseavisen, I moved back to Oslo, Tøyen, to be more specific. I managed to get a job. As a press photographer /photojournalist in Norway, that is really kind of hard. Most newspapers and magazines doesen’t hire photographers, except for the occacional freelancer, and I guess for a newspaper to start hiring photographers, some of their already-employed photo dudes have to die or become 90 years old or something. So I must admit I feel a bit lucky with work every week, and regular salary. I’ve been in that game now since september, and my contract ends in june, so I’m trying to get it extended. The magazine is Teknisk Ukeblad, or in Technology Weekly in english. I’ll present it thoroughly later. In the meantime, I’ll post some of the first pictures I took at my new job:
