I started taking photographs in 1978 and joined Bekkalokket Photo Club in Bergen, Norway, the same year. After having achieved good results in Bekkalokket’s competitions for many years, in 1987, I started taking part in the national competitions. I am currently ranked as number 5 in the national competitions, which have been held annually since 1930.

I started participating in FIAP approved competitions in 1990 and had my first photo accepted in Latvia that year. I held my first separate exhibition in 2005, and since 2009, I have had a permanent exhibition at a public service office in Bergen. My pictures have been accepted/awarded in 95 different countries all over the world, with a total of 970 different images.
