Too much BABY/LOVE?


After looking through many of my previous posts I realize that there is a lot of BABY/LOVE going around and so I am thinking…… Is it to much? 

You, reading my blog, are being bombarded with love, loves and more loves;  babies by the dozen and so much optimism. 

So I now feel, after experiencing this realization, I have to share!

This doesn't mean that I have bad news, it only means that I want to shed some light.

So guess what? I am tired! I am soooooo tired! I have been working like a mad man!!!

But a warrior of light always remembers the goal. Always. 

Keep your eye on the prize... 

So what is the prize then?  

What is my goal?

Well, I want to share this as well. My goal is to become one of Norway's best female photographers (it is currently dominated by men, in case you did not know.) And yes, I know that I am aiming high! But I WANT to aim high and I want to be all that I can be. 

My plan to get there is simple. I have fairly high expectations of my self (now that is an understatement!), so I will focus on performing out of love for what I do and I will be dedicated and proactive.

After many years working in some of Norway`s biggest & most renown firms I have build up quite the tool box. It includes: stamina, an eye for high quality, tolerance in regards to long working hours, and several others (thank you to the companies - you know who you are). And all the years working with these beautiful people made me realize that it was leading up to this very moment. I don't think I could have done it without the experience I now have. I finally made my choice based on all the years of hard work in combination with my passion. Actually - strike that! I didn't have a choice. The heart wants what it wants, right?

The fact that I am so bloody positive all the time is simply due to the fact that I chose to follow my dream, that's all!!

So I am concluding this post by saying;

I can try to use different words, but there will always be a whole lotta BABY/LOVE!

Photo work shop with CF Wesenberg & Samsung

The last couple of days I have had the pleasure of contributing to a successful work shop at Hamar - Staur GjestegĂ„rd. 18 people in total had the chance to sit down in the most harmonic surroundings. We have had an intensive work shop with all the salespeople from Samsung, to better understand the function and the endless possibilities of the camera, and the quality of the Samsung hybrid. 
As you might know I have been so lucky to have had two Samsung cameras the last 6 months - the NX10 & EX1. 
I am in love with them both...

I have taken a lot of photos up here and I will of course share them with you after a bit of retouching.

I don´t favor pics from Mother Nature, meaning I love them but I havn´t taken pics of her myself. 
But this place is so beautiful I couldn´t help myself!
Stay tuned:)
This pic is taken with my iPhone without retouch....
Looks a lot like Narnia don´t you think?
Hence; Waiting 4 Aslan!

Thnx Paulo!!

The warrior of light remembers a passage from John Bunyan:
'Although I have been through all that I have, I do not regret the many
hardships I met, because it was they who brought me to the place I wished to
reach. Now all I have is this sword and I give it to whomever wishes to continue
his pilgrimage. I carry with me the marks and scars of battles - they are the
witnesses of what I suffered and the rewards of what I conquered.
These are the beloved marks and scars that will open the gates of Paradise
to me. There was a time when I used to listen to tales of bravery. There was a
time when I lived only because I needed to live. But now I live because I am a
warrior and because I wish one day to be in the company of Him for whom I have
fought so hard.'

Paulo Coelho
"Manual for the warrior of light"

Love love love Marianne!
