Where do you call home?
Denmark, were I was born. Currently am I living in Freiburg in the south of Germany.
Tell us a bit about these selection of shots.
My home is Denmark and my playground is Schwarzwald (the black forest). I can breath in the mountains, they provide me with an energy and silence that I cannot find anywhere else. The pictures are from different rides last summer.
How did your love of photography and cycling come together?
I love the nature, I love dramatic scenarios and I love speed - the best place to experience this is on the bike! And I love to have the memories from my rides, it always make me dream.
What’s the lowdown on your kit - bike and camera?
I use my phone (Sony Xperia X1 Compact), gopro and Nikon 3100. My bike is a Principia Integral C40 – hand made in Denmark.
How do you carry your camera while riding?
My phone and the gopro, do I carry in my back pocket of the jersey. The Nikon is usually placed in a small bag.
Coffee or beer after your ride?
Coffee and it is best with a big cake on the side.
Waxing or shaving?
Waxing – leaves my legs smooth for a longer time
Garmin or no Garmin? Do you use apps to record your ride?
Garmin, just in case I get lost and it happens a lot…
