I’m Frøydis, a traveler born by the fjords in the West of Norway. Photography found me at a young age, when I explored different ways to express myself. I leave a piece of myself in every picture I take, and I never get tired of exploring and documenting other people’s love stories. Still every year I’m cutting down the number of weddings I shoot.
I consider my work a fusion of the love I have for art and pure documentary. Even though most pictures I show the world have an artistic vibe, 90% from the wedding day are documentary. I don’t want to give my couples heavily edited photos from their wedding day, so I briefly touch them, as I will show you in my presentation.
One thing you might not know about me. I don’t have a website, and never had one. I’m also terrible at SOME, all tho I try to make an effort now and then.
Entering the stage at NineDots is a dream come true, and I can’t wait to meet you all. Please come say hi if you see me, since I’m probably shyer than you..
How I found my inner photographer aka how to unf*ck yourself.
Did you ever look at other photographers work, thinking; my work sucks, and I’ll never be successful?
And do you think that in order to get better you’ll have to buy all the presets in the world, and the most expensive gear?
Comparison is the thief of joy, and, in my opinion, will get you nowhere.
So what is the key to unveil your creativity?
I’ll tell you how I, after several years, as a Jack of all trades, master of none in photography, finally cracked the code and found my inner photographer.
And what surprised me the most, was how my biggest failures and flaws were the entrance to a much better life, both as a human being and a photographer. I took a time out and unf*cked myself, and that made all the difference.

Communication is key
In order to get the best from the person(s) in front of your camera, you have to give of yourself.
Communication and trust are the keys to get the picture you’ve envisioned.
I’ll show you how I communicate with my couple before and during a session.
Also hands. we need to talk about hands.
