Ein gong tidleg på sekstitalet så fekk eg eit avdanka kasseapprat, 9x9 var det visst eit format. Det som var mest interressant var innmaten og korleis den virka. Min eldste bro kjøpte seg eit kamera og det vart nokre svart kvit bilder av det. Det var slik det var den tida. På ein sommarferie så vart eg introdusert for kontaktkopiering med kjemikalielukt og slikt. Mitt første Instamatic 50 kjøpte eg så på midten av sekstitalet. Minolta SRT 101 i 1970 og så var eg i gang. Openus og nytt Nikkor objektiv viste at det var forskjell på utstyr. Dette "tipset" kom fra karane i Ålesund Kamerakulbb (ÅKK) Bilder har det blitt, mest for meg sjølv men også deltaking i diverse kokurranser. Og no kan eg vise deg nokre av bilda mine. Håper at dei fell i smak mellom alle dei andre bilda som "finst der ute". Velbekomme.

My first experience with photo and cameras goes back to the early sixties. This was a kind of a mustard seed that grew up through the decades. I’m only a hobbyist that loves to snap shoot but also use lot of time on one single object again and again. Camera?. Yes I made the big decision in 1970: Minolta. Yes Minolta compared to Pentax, Nikon and Canon, the most comprehensive camera without screw mounting, with full aperature opening         etc, the excellent SRT 101  

And many years later and several Minolta, Minolta/Konica and Sony cameras on the shelf, a new real tool – for me - the Sony Alpha 99 has been unpacked and fertilized my mustard to grew further in my lifetime.But my Alpha 100 is still in use.

I love to make pictures designed by light, shapes and lines. And some of my "snap shoots" are presented on this site. I hope it feels good to go through the album and perhaps some pictures talk to you too?

If you want to get copy of any pictures, you are mostly welcome to my   500px  site or to contact me directly if the pic dont show up in 500px
Best regards
