This picture was my first rewarded picture. It is taken with a compact Sony camera with no flash or other aid at about 30 meters in the Red Sea. The picture won the Wide angle class in a national uwphoto contest summer 2005.
This picture was one of the first pictures I took in Norway with a DSLR. It is a quite rare nudibranch that we found just west of Oslo during a workshop with Espen Rekdal. It is taken with a Nikon D70, 50mm Sigma macro lens (shot a f/11) with 2 Inon flashes at about 24 meters depth. This was placed 3rd in the Macro category in the same contest as the above picture.
This lumpsucker (Rognkall/ rognkjeks in Norwegian)  was photographed during a fantastic dive at Portør, Norway. After about 10 minutes he was quite friendly. He posed for a Nikon D70 with a Sigma 50mm macro lens for a percentage of a second at f/11. I had my to Inons to brighten her teeth. He gave me a second place in the Fish portrait category at the Norwegian uwphoto championship 2005.  The picture also got an honourable mention at the internasjonal uwimages.org 2006 contest.
A newspaper called "Dagsavisen" was doing an article on scuba diving courses late 2006. They wanted me to take some pictures and this was the one they used on a double spread. The model was nice enough to help me feed the fish with a sea urchin. I used my Sigma 10-20mm at 20mm  f5.6 1/40th of a second. My strobes gave color to the diver and the fish he's feeding.
This picture was taken on my 4th dive ever with a DSLR. I picked up my underwater housing in Japan and figured I test it while I was there. I was diving with my favourite guide ever Nobusada. He found this for me and I was equiped with my 50mm macro lens. It still worked out and here I had a f-stop at 16 while the shutter was 1/100. As you can see on his back he was probably sick.
