Christian is an accomplished photographer, explorer and filmmaker, specialising in travel, adventure and landscape photography. He is currently based in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Traveling throughout the year to pursue ethereal images and capture stories that offers a positive focus on our planet. Through social media and photography workshops, Christian strives to share his vision of wild places, and to inspire people to explore for themselves.
Storytelling is absolute key to Christian’s photography. With a background in photojournalism, he now divides his time between a range of photographic assignments, documentary film work and solo exploration around the world. For as long as he can remember, Christian has been drawn to the outdoors, adventures and landscapes. With 18 years of working as a professional photographer he brings with him not just an enormous experience, but also a creativity and drive that just gets stronger with time. He is always inspired by visiting new places and new cultures, and Christian finds incredible happiness in being out in the natural world.
Being a mentor in the international photography community for many years, he now offers unique and epic photography workshops around the world where he will share everything he ever learned about making work that resonates with people, while sharing his passion for the true adventure.
