    Sharing photos with Zenfolio

    Even though being a software developer and having a company that started out with making content management software many years ago, I stopped trying to do everything by myself. I don’t want to think about how much time I’ve wasted …
  • Backup – locally and online

    Backup – locally and online

    With photos being a quite important part of my life – both personally as a hobby and financially as a profession – loosing my photos would be a disaster. I have always been very thorough with making backups of my …
  • Reaching your goals

    Reaching your goals

    This time of year, in the calm and silent days between Christmas Eve and New Year, I spend some of the days evaluating the year that has gone and thinking about the goals for the year to come. Not the …

    ProShow Producer 6

    Unfortunately my old version 4 of Photodex ProShow Producer stopped working with one of the latest updates of Windows 8. I couldn’t get it back working, and didn’t want to waste more time, so I decided to buy the upgrade …
  • High-key photography

    High-key photography

    I have promised several times (not least to myself) that I would get better at describing the different techniques and systems in the studio. Frankly, I’m not very good at that, and I mostly end up blogging about the commercial and …
  • Junk shops

    Junk shops

    One of the strongest influences which led to my venturing into the stock photo business was once when I could not source some pictures for a series of brochures and websites a few years ago. In particular, when preparing a …
  • Inspiration and brainstorming

    Inspiration and brainstorming

    If I were to summarise the questions I get asked about my photography, “Where do you get your ideas from?” would probably be top of the list. It’s also the most difficult one to answer. The easiest explanation would probably be to …
  • Manic-depressive photographers

    Manic-depressive photographers

    The life of a photographer is an aimless wandering along a path consisting of equal parts of enthusiasm and despair. One moment excitement about the ridge that provides a perfect panoramic image. The next a desperate sorting of 100 confusing images resembling …
  • It’s all lights and makeup

    It’s all lights and makeup

    That’s what I tell people when they are occasionally shocked by some of my creative images of gruesome subjects. And that is actually one of the aspects of photography that is the most fun: How important light is for the final …
  • Absurd banalities

    Absurd banalities

    Stock photos is essentially about trivialities. Pictures of perfectly ordinary things in setups designed to give the impression of having been taken directly out of everyday life. Therefore the challenge is to get setups to look real while simultaneously creating an image …
  • Outsourcing

    Outsourcing

    It is almost 18 years since I went independent and established myself as an independent operator – with all the financial uncertainty this entails. Since then, I have probably made the same mistakes as everyone else – and hopefully learned from …
  • Capturing reality

    Capturing reality

    With the number of friends I have among photographers, I often get the chance to discuss the more philosophical aspects of photography. Photo sites, both Danish and foreign, bulging with pictures that fall under the headings of street photography and documentaries, …
  • Beauty Clinic

    Beauty Clinic

    Makeup and cosmetic retouching are issues which can often lead to heated debate in photographic discussion forums. Some see portrait photos as documentary images, designed to portray the person exactly as he or she is now. Others create pictures where the models …
  • The Wardrobe

    The Wardrobe

    So, it’s time to renew the model wardrobe again. This time it is the branded product section with a few new and colourful items from Jack’s, Lindbergh and Shine. Not the most expensive, but it can still dent the year’s clothing budget …
  • Copyright Hell

    Copyright Hell

    Can this photo ever be a stock photo? The question is obviously rhetorical and the answer is no. The picture can be sold as art on paper – or as an editorial image which cannot be used commercially. Why? Because there are …
  • PhotoShelter synchronization

    PhotoShelter synchronization

    I’m a very happy user of PhotoShelter. PhotoShelter provides me with easy online presentation of my work, extensive administrative functions with galleries and collections, search functions for the customers, advanced pricing profile setup and a complete shopping system with payment …
  • Photographic taboos

    Photographic taboos

    Right! I reckon that picture got your attention. I’ll get back to it shortly. I would be the first to admit that the best known examples of my photography can probably be considered pretty strange to outsiders. That’s not really a mistake, …
  • Trust yourself

    Trust yourself

    More than two years have passed since I decided it was time that I did something serious about my passion for photography. I decided that I wanted to show my work for a wider audience, and that I would make …
