I am Fredrik Strømme, a landscape and forest photographer living in the middle of Norway in a city called Trondheim.
My photography interest started about 20 years ago when I went to high school and I had my first encounter with the software called Photoshop.
This was years before I had my own camera. But I got really fascinated of what could be done with photos in the post processing.
As the years went by I spent hours upon hours working with stock photos of landscapes, and creating my own vision with them. Mostly dark fantasty art.
And even if the end product was something completely different than the photo I started with, it still did not feel like my photo since I had used stock photos.
Stock photos are free images to download, but I wanted to create images using photos I had taken myself.
So I bought my first DSLR and got hooked on landscape photography instead.
And from that moment I said goodbye to dark fantasy art and began focusing on learning all I could on my camera and how to take good photos.
I still have kept some of the dark in me, as I have a moody and atmospheric style on my photography.
You won’t find me shooting sunsets. But when it rains, I will head out and hunt for motives.
It has been a long and demanding road, but most of all a lot of fun.
Which has so far resulted in being shared on several National Geographic Facebook groups, and on Instagrams main account.
