Hi! My name is Aleksander Espelid. I'm a 28 year old trained carpenter, who changed vocation and is just finishing a two year study at Bilder Nordic School of Photography. I'm based in Oslo, Norway, but will hopefully soon relocate to south-west Europe!
Some people always ask me why I shoot film. It's expensive. It takes time. You don't see the photos. For me, it's all about the feeling. But you can copy the look digitally, everyone says. And you can, but it's never the same. And the process of shooting is definitely not the same. I'm always more calm when I shoot film. Always more focused.
Makeup: Ragnhild Syvertsen
