Trine Thorsen started her working career in service management, but she dreamed about being a photographer. In 1994 she completed a three years study of photography at the Academy of Art University, San Francisco. It took her a while to take the final step to fulfill her dream, but at the age of 29, Trine decided to leave her job and became a fulltime photographer. Her photos have been published in Norwegian and international interior, fashion & lifestyle magazines. She has also contributed in several books and has her own blog. Trine photographed our Issue #4 story ‘Idyllic Icelandic’ about Rut Karadottir’s house in Reykjavík, Iceland VIEW HERE >>
What do you covet? My job as photographer and my new passion, designing and making furniture together with my boyfriend.
Favourite designer/design influence? Dutch designers. Hard to name one, there are so many great ones.
Favourite online shop? Look fantastic. Here I buy all my hair and facial products for less than it would cost to buy it in Norway.
No. 1 photography tip? Use natural light as long as you are able to and invest in a tripod and a reflector instead of a flash if you need more light. Creating good “natural” light with a flash takes a little practice.
