Do you plan a photo mission?
Sometimes I like to be prepared and know in advance what I’m going to shoot. But it doesn’t always work that way.
Dream photo job / mission? To shoot a Mark Gonzales frontside ollie or maybe a eggplant…
Lately I have been working on, Cremen #2 . My iPhone bullshit video
I use my? …(Please state you camera equipment name)
Canon 5D Mkii + 24-70mm + 15mm fisheye + 50mm + canon flashes, pocket wizards and so on. All basics – it works for me. Nothing fancy or really expensive even though i’ve dreamed about certain equipment from time to time.
I have spent ca XXX??? On my gear at the moment?
Probably 100.000,- DKK over the last 10 years. Quick estimate.. Not sure. Some of it I sold again though.
What is your favorite way to go our and shoot pictures
The big random crew in the streets where nothing is planned but we end up with good stuff.. That happens sometimes and it’s great. But sometimes I like the solo mission where the trick and spot is planned.
When I was little I would like to…
Be a stage technician, sound engineer, something with electronics. Nerd stuff.
When I’m home I like to, Listen to good music and look in my photo/video archive.
Normally call my friends for, I prefer texts. But probably to skate or eat. Often both.

I enjoy going to, Jarmers Plads, Nino’s Pizzeria, Temple Bar.
Favorite drink is, Champion Of The Sun
Favorite food is, Italian food. Creamy pastas.
Favorite drug, Don’t do them.
When I cook, I cook, My cooking is too embarrassing to talk about.
I listen to, A lot of good stuff. Sometimes I spin good music with my friend Villads.
To go to restaurant is, Nino’s (Nørrebro). Fine pasta dishes. Pizza nr. 27 with pastrami is good. Nr. 43 bianca with Prosciutto/Parma. Great.
Favorite photographer, Skate photographer? I dig Mike O’ Meally & Tobias Plass.
Favorite photo spot
Somewhere sunny. Jarmers Plads is my favorite spot but it’s hard to shoot something “new” there.
TOP 3 city’s
When I do not shoot pictures, I Skate, discover good music, play pool, make lifestyle moves.
My fitness program is, Lay down and eat chocolate.
I would like to see more of, The dawgs killing the lifestyle game.
That one time where I was in jail because of, Never been caught.
I should do more of, … I should be skating some new spots. But i don’t want to.
My future looks like, I don’t know at the moment. Struggling with that one – hah!
I dream of, Owning a boat.
I currently follow (social media) Mostly friends and music fanatics. Some skate brands.
Anything else, Not really i guess. The Lodge is what’s up. Let’s do more tours and rad stuff.
Thanks, Thanks for caring 🙂
