1) When did you start to think about photography?
For about 2 or 3 years ago.
2) What does it mean photography for you?
It’s a fun hobby and something to keep me busy. I like the satisfaction I get when a photo comes out good, and that the photographs contain so many memories.
3) Witch kind of photography do you like more?
I like all kinds of styles… It doesn’t matter as long as I like the image itself. I tend to like pictures of people a lot more than pictures of for instance bridges or landscapes though. And I do like it when there is some humor in the photo, or something unusual is happening.
4) When you take a portrait, what is important to you?
The light, the place, or that there is a good idea behind it.
5) Do you think it’s important to follow a school to learn how to shoot?
Not really, if you’re motivated you can teach yourself a lot very quickly. And if you need to learn how to use a camera, you can ask your daddy.
6) What’s the photo you want to take and you never did?
There are a lot of them. When I go out thinking I don’t need to bring a camera, I always see stuff I’d like to photograph. Like drunks urinating in the middle of the street, or girls on motorbikes with far too short skirts.
7) What’s your photo-mission?
That’s something I rarely think about. At the moment I’m happy to just carry a camera around with me and take pictures if anything interesting should occur, and hope that other people will find the pictures interesting as well.
