Last week I worked two days at Øyafestivalen in Oslo for the Norwegian magazine GAFFA.no and the international agency Gonzales Photo. This was the 20th edition of the festival, and I have attended each year since 2007.

Some of my personal highlights included The Cure and Blood Orange (Wednesday) and Eryka Badu (Thursday).

Cardi B

Last night Cardi B performed as a headliner at the Norwegian festival Kadetten Music Festival in Sandvika. She is one of the biggest names in the industry at the moment, and it was both fun and chaotic in the photo pit during the first three songs of her set.

OverOslo 2019

Why not try something new from time to time? I’ve been hearing a lot of good stuff about the festival OverOslo over the years so last night I decided to head up to Grefsenkollen to check out some oldies but goldies with Mannfred Mann’s Earth Band, The Proclaimers and Toto. And I must admit I had a really good time, and that I enjoyed being one of the youngest festival attendees for a change.

Mari Henanger reviewed the Toto show for GAFFA.no.

The last couple of days I’ve been working for GAFFA.no and Gonzales Photo at the festival Piknik i Parken. This year the festival moved to Sofienbergparken in Oslo and I got to see acts like New Order, The Streets, Julia Holter, The 1975 and Jungle perform.

Some highlights below.

2018 in Music: A Collection of Photos

This year has been a year of new adventures. I’ve been doing a little less music photography, but has managed to travel a lot, visiting new and old places. Ibiza, New York, Iceland. New festivals with and without my camera bag; Panorama NYC, Roskilde Festival, Øyafestivalen, Iceland Airwaves. Enjoying life and working hard.

I started 2018 with a wonderful and intimate Charlotte Dos Santos show at Victoria Nasjonal Jazzscene in Oslo and ended it with a really poor concert by Ms. Lauryn Hill at Oslo Spektrum. In between I’ve photographed artists like Sigrid, Grandmaster Flash, Gary Numan, Harry Styles, Thirty Seconds To Mars, Metallica, Demi Lovato, Foo Fighters, Father John Misty, Prophets Of Rage, Arcade Fire, St. Vincent, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Roger Waters, Jeff Lynne, Laurie Anderson, Shania Twain, Blood Orange and MGMT. Not bad!

I sincerly hope you enjoy this collection of pictures from 2018 (click on the image for full screen).
