What you'll do

Single person, group, family or couple? One price covers it all! Up to 5 people in a group. After the experience is over I will deliver 15 edited high-res photos as a beautiful memory of your trip.
About our day:
You will take advantage of my extended knowledge of the city, having grow up here, I know all the hidden and secret spots. We will naturally also visit the more well-know places to have a good balance. We will start by grabbing a hot beverage in one of my favorite cafes not far from Fløibanen station. During this time we will get better acquainted and I will tell you some of my unique experiences I've had in the city. I will talk about the history of the city, and explain our "Scandinavian" way of life. We'll leave the cafe and walk towards Bryggen. This is when I'll start to take your portraits. We will continue up in Sandviken, this is where I grew up, so I know a lot of very beautiful streets and hidden-spots. After this we will walk up to Fjellveien for some very scenic views of the city. Depending on the weather we'll either make it up to Fløyen, (we'll take the cable car) or we'll walk back down to the city for some more photo-taking. During our 2 hour walk, I hope you will have learned a lot of new things about Bergen and us Norwegians, and of course receive great portraits you can keep as a memory.
Other things to note
I'll be sure to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera, I work discreetly, and I will make sure you have a positive experience together with me.

My name is Benjamin, I'm a native who grew up in Bergen. I started my own photography company back in 2013. But I have always had an interest in photography since I was a small child. I also have a background in Fine-art and in Filmmaking. I love to bring my camera around in the city, you never know what you'll find. I know these streets so well. My favorite photography genres are nature, portraits, travel and street.

It was an absolute pleasure having Benjamin take my photo while touring the beautiful city of Bergen. I am usually quite shy having someone photograph me, but Benjamin’s friendly and genuine personality made me feel very comfortable. It also helped that he made me laugh many times while taking my photo. My favorite part of the tour was seeing Sandviken through the eyes of Benjamin, who has grown up there. It was truly a one of a kind experience hearing the stories of this Scandinavian city that has such a rich and old history. I highly recommended this experience! Worth every minute. Thank you Benjamin for making my first trip to Bergen a unique and unforgettable adventure. These photos will be highly cherished, as I remember all the stories behind them.

Had such a great experience with Benjamin! I grew up outside of Bergen and Benjamin fitted the experience perfectly so that a 'minor local' like me could get a new look at this beautiful city. He also made the photoshoot fun and easy so that I didn't feel like an idiot while posing. He's a great storyteller and I find him funny and interesting to listen to. I will recommend him to anyone who asks for this type of experience!
