I think my design in the pictures shows that I like to focus on details and colors which makes the photos balanced and interesting.
Heidi, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as Photographer?
I started to photograph everything, animals, cars, motorcycles, nature, but when I started working with people, weddings and fashion that is where my heart stayed.
Who is your inspiration in life Heidi? How do you stay inspired as a Photographer?
Oh my, I get inspired by everything. A certain shape, the wind, sunrises, humans, hate, things that make me smile, Norwegian nature, anything that sparkles, the feeling of a happy animal, love, kisses and the sun. I stay inspired by following all the talented photographers on Instagram that I come over.
We all make mistakes Heidi; we wish we could take back. What was the mistake you made in the past that you wish you can take back?
To start with a super low price and thinking lower about my work!
Heidi, How do you describe yourself in terms of working with clients?
I like to listen a lot to my clients if they have specific things they want from me. For me to be satisfied I need to have satisfied clients! I am also super friendly and easy to work with.
Please tell us, Heidi, how do you prioritise work, social life, friends, and family?
I work A LOT. I also run another business too other than photography. But still, I love to prioritise friends and family and most importantly my dog and my partner. And also I need to have time for some workouts or hiking.
Heidi, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
Hmm, this was a tough one. But it has to be in the fashion store with the procurement. Because I love dresses and skirts that flow in the wind on my pictures, so I got to take it in the store, and the buyers liked it so yaay!
Heidi, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Photographer.
This was in Australia where a female dingo (wild dog) and a male dominant dingo started fighting over a meal, and I got some amazing pictures of the fight! The guide was amazed as he also took pictures but threw it away after he saw mine and said as a guide for 30 years he had never come over pictures like this of the dingos. I like the wildlife. Or maybe my naked friend is being sensual after climbing logs and looking comfortable there when she wasn't. It is on the front page of my website.
Heidi, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
I have always struggled with direct sunlight, but this summer I have tried to challenge myself with it, and now I feel like I am getting better at it. I use shadows from the sun for an advantage at contrasting, for example, a fence that lines up nice shadows or flowers or a branch. Difficult but when the result became good, I got excited and wanted to do it more.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?
Go out and take pictures. You learn something new every time.
