Selected from more than 21,000 images of which 126 were awarded, I am delighted to let you know that one of my images; “Leopard Silhouette” has been highly commended in the Art in Nature category in Nature’s Best Photography 2011.
At Gallery Schee at Hov there will be a wilderness weekend Friday 28th to Sunday 30th October, where I have been invited to have a photo exhibition. The exhibition will present images I have taken of carnivores in Norden, including new photographs of wolves, brown bears and polar bears taken this year.
Two boat trips and four weeks all together made 2011 my ultimate Svalbard summer. I have seen nearly 30 polar bears, over a thousand walruses, a lot of ringed seals, bearded seals, harbour seals, a few harp seals, mink whales, blue whale, and a lot of arctic foxes and Svalbard reindeers.
This summer I will have a photo exhibition at Kittilbu Museum (Randsfjordmuseene) in Vestre Gausdal near Lillehammer. The exhibition opens June 26 at 12:00 and will remain open until September 18. The exhibition presents photographs of brown bears I have taken in Finland, and it will be possible to purchase prints and framed photographs at the museum.
