Back in early September I was hired by Vendi Advertising to shoot some stock images for ACE Communications Group in Houston MN. It was a great pleasure to work with such professional people, both at Vendi and at ACE.

We drove around the area to capture people and places that ACE service as well as some of the employees at ACE. It was high energy and very warm, but we got our shots done and a lot of laughs along the way.

Here are a few of my favorite shots from day one. Enjoy!

I was looking through some shots from October and came across the ones below. I totally love being at airports. I doesn’t matter how many hours I have to wait – I LOVE IT! There are so many cool images – everywhere!

Had I waited just one more day I would most likely not have been able to go anywhere. The weather turned into a snow storm and all planes were grounded the following day.

Let me know what you think. Enjoy!

Loved the bright yellow marks on the glass sliding doors at the airport in Oslo. Fresh!

The silhouettes of people walking was super cool! The people walking on the top is actually a reflection and were behind me.

Looking down the loooong walkway. I like the lines.

Lots of fun lines crossing each other.

I totally loved how neatly these planes were lined up.

Norwegian fjords and mountains. My nose was “glued” to the window the whole time until we got to the coast. Just beautiful!

The coast of Iceland coming closer.

…more Iceland. Looks like a crater to me.

Going in for landing. Check out the loooong stretches of roads cutting up the landscape.

Back up…icy windows.

Iceland air have fresh fun colors! I have quite a few shots like this one. Just something about those colors.

This one has a sort of stormy underwater feel I think.

After what felt like a never-ending flight we finally reached Minneapolis. Amazing sun set! You can even see the reflection in some of the small lakes in the city.

Hopefully I’ll have images from another trip sometime soon.  : )

My sister, her daughter Tindra and I decided to walk down to the new Opera House in Oslo. It opened in April of this year and has been in the news quite a bit.

The moment I saw the building I was blown away. I have seen lots of images, but they are nothing compared to actually being there. Oslo Opera House is simply stunning! You better believe I got my camera out in a hurry. Those moments make it hard for me to focus on anything else other than framing up images through my camera. 

The building is an amazing piece of art. There is white marble everywhere you walk and the building has lots of glass which gives a bright wonderful light on the inside of the building. The cool thing is that you can actually walk up on top of the roof. When you get up there the side of the building is put together with these  “braille” looking tiles. On the bottom the marble goes right into the fjord. 

The inside was another sweet surprise. Contemporary design a classy giftshop and a simple restaurant with an amazing wine list. Even the bathrooms were something to see.

I could have walked around all day. I think my favorite part is the simple style that you see everywhere in and outside the building. There are strong clean lines EVERYWHERE. LOVE IT!

Here are some of my favorite shots. Enjoy!

I would love to go and see a performance. Imagine the view from inside when the sun goes down.

In between all the white and wood you will find a bright dash of red on the tables in the restaurant. Which also has a beautiful view of the fjord.

As the weather changed I found myself constantly drawn to this huge window facing west.

For these last two I chose to use my “gold”.
