One of the most frequent questions I get, is what gear do I use. Here's a quick lowdown of what's in my backpack. I am constantly upgrading or adding gear, so this setup will change on an annual basis depending on my tech needs. If you still have questions, please e-mail me and I'll get back to you.

CAMERAS

Nikon D850 Pre-ordered this bad boy. Can't wait to test it and see if it's as good as they claim it will be. The specs are looking amazing.

Nikon D810 My trusted go-to camera for the last years. I had a D800 prior to upgradind to the D810, and I haven't regretted it for even a split second. In addition to it's superior dynamic range and sheer optical quality, it's built like a tank and can withstand the beating it gets due to the harsh conditions I put it through in the high Arctic. For nighttime shooting, it never leaves my side. A true workhorse.

Fujifilm X-T2 The X-T2 was always meant to be my backup camera. It's small, mirrorless and the optics are razor sharp. For everyday stuff and behind the scenes it has definitely done the job. The AF is lightning fast and I love the fact that it's all manual, so it requires of the actual photographer. Wish the *.RAF files were compatible with Adobe products though.

LENSES FOR THE NIKON CAMERA

Nikon AF-S 14-24mm f/2.8 G ED My trusted ultra wide-angle lens for the last three years I think. It's simply perfect.

Nikon AF-S 85mm f/1.4 G For all things non-nature, this has been my best friend over the last years. The bokeh is unreal!

Sigma Art 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM (Nikon Mount) I'm a big fan of the Sigma Art lenses, and this 35mm is an awesome "tool" to have in my camerabag.

LENSES FOR THE FUJIFILM CAMERA

 Fujifilm XF 10-24mm f/4.0 R OIS My wide-angle choice when shooting on the Fujifilm XF system. It's very lightweight, wish it was f/2.8 though!

Fujifilm XF 16-55mm f/2.8 R LM WR The lens I use the most when shooting with the X-T2. Razor sharp images and completely weathersealed.

Fujifilm XF 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 R LM OIS I sold my Nikon 70-200mm for this purely for weight-issues. It does the job, even though I would still prefer to have the Nikon in my bag.

DRONE

DJI Phantom 4 Pro RTF I'm a big fan of aerial photography and when DJI launched the Phantom 4 Pro I knew I needed it. At the time I was using the regular Phantom 4, and the difference in optical quality is remarkable.

DJI Mavic Pro Fly More Combo It's amazing how small and compact the Mavic Pro drone is. Absolutely love it for when I need to think about what to pack/bring on trips, as it pretty much fits in my backpocket almost.

4x DJI Phantom 4 Intelligent Battery Flying in cold and harsh Arctic climates requires a lot of battery life. I have four of these and should probably have four more just to certain I have enough juice. On a normal winter's day in Norway, I get about 11 minutes pr battery.

TRIPOD, BALLHEAD & L-BRACKET

Really Right Stuff TVC-34L Tripod I probably went through 2-3 Manfrotto's a year prior to upgrading to this beast of a tripod. It can withstand the harshest winds, and the salty seaspray is not a match for it.

Really Right Stuff BH-55 LR PRO Ballhead A beast of a tripod needs a beast of a ballhead, and that's exactly what this is. It's probably overkill for my needs, but damn it's fluidity is flawless - and it look's pretty sexy too!

Really Right Stuff BD810-L: Nikon D810 L-Plate A few years ago, everyone kept telling me that I need to get an L-plate for my D810. I'm glad I listened to them, the stability and all around logistics is making my life 10x easier.

Zhiyun Crane 3-Axis Gimbal For all video production, I use this system from Zhiyun Tech. It's 3-axis stabilizing are insanely good. Now I just need to learn some saucy camera-moves properly. I primarily use the Fujifilm X-T2 for videos with this gimbal.

Syrp Genie 3-Axis Kit Syrp were so kind to send the Syrp Genie 3-axis kit a while back. I've played around with it but still not happy with the look of the timelapse. I need to practice a lot more before I publish any timelapses. Sorry for being so incredibly slow Syrp!

Polarpro ND filters for the DJI P4P ND8, 16 and 32 filters for the DJI Phantom 4 drone. Such a great tool when you wanna do long exposure shots from the air, or video that requires a given shutte speed like 25fps/50ss and 30fps/60 ss etc. Their customer service is superb too!

Formatt-Hitech Firecrest ND Filters When Formatt-Hitech released the highly anticipated Firecrest ND filters, I just knew I had to get in touch with them. By far the best ND's filters I've tried, completely color neutral and almost no vignetting whatsoever, not even on my ultra wide-angle lenses.
