I was department manager at a global corporation when the acquisition of a competitor was announced. We didn’t anticipate the monster that was lurking behind the corner when a year of reorganizations, layoffs and conflicts started. When it was time for Christmas leave the mess had taken it’s toll, I was put on sick leave for exhaustion syndrome, or more popularly put, I was burned out. The way back with using photography as therapy, a photo workshop with a big impact on my photography, competition successes - it all comes together in the book In the twilight zone.

I’m an art and nature photographer that uses images to formulate and express feelings. My goal is to create art that touches the viewer and asks questions, where there’s more to see than what immediately catches the viewers interest. Of course, the beauty of nature and the world play important roles as well, and sometimes that’s my only motive. I create art as a way to relax and get away from the stress of life. With a camera in my hand out in nature I focus 100% on that, and nothing else.
