Oslo is the capital of Norway. So it should be THE place for you to do some street photo in Norway.

 

“The best images are the ones that retain their strength and impact over the years, regardless of the number of times they are viewed.” Anne Geddes
1956

Oslo. Founded in the year 1040, and established as a “kaupstad” or trading place in 1048 by King Harald III, the city was elevated to a bishopric in 1070 and a capital under Haakon V around 1300. Personal unions with Denmark from 1397 to 1523 and again from 1536 to 1814 and with Sweden from 1814 to 1905 reduced its influence. After being destroyed by a fire in 1624, the city was moved closer to Akershus Fortress during the reign of King Christian IV and renamed Christiania in his honour. It was established as a municipality (formannskapsdistrikt) on 1 January 1838. Following a spelling reform, it was known as Kristiania from 1877 to 1925, at which time its original Norwegian name was restored.

For me the best way to get to Oslo is by bus. Leave my car at home and forget about parking tickets and fines.

I like to shoot streetlife as it is. Rich people at tourist attractions or people that live on and off the street at tough parts of the town. I dont care..
I like to talk to people and get real photos of real people and places.

Sorry, in Norwegian only -seeking models for fun & free photoshoots in Norway .

Fotograf søker modell i Fredrikstad / Østfold

TFP modell søkes i Østfold / Akershus. Bildene jeg tar på TFP fotograferinger er helt gratis.
Har du ikke erfaring? Spiller ingen rolle. Dette skal bare være gøy. 

TFP er det samme som Trade For Prints, som er et fenomen innen foto og modellbransjen der fotografer og modeller jobber for hverandre for å få trening, referanser og portfoliobilder eller bilder til instagram, blogger, facebook og andre sosiale medier. Jeg har ett lite fotostudio hjemme og har også mulighet til å ta med noe av lamper & blitzer ut for å ta bilder hvor som helst.

 Veldig fint om du kan ha med deg en person som hjelper til med sminke og hår, om mulig. Erfaring ikke nødvendig. Dette skal bare være artig og gi noen gode bilder for begge parter.

Gjerne langvarig samarbeid med mulighet for å lage en serie stock photos på sikt.

Send en mail til ulfgreger2008@gmail.com så hører du fra meg. Merk mailen TFP og navnet ditt. Søker primært TFP modell i Norge, helst Oslo, Moss, Fredrikstad, Hvaler eller Halden strekningen. Evt Vestfold. Bor selv på Hvaler.
