About VLPrints

Sales 107
On Etsy since 2008


Each photograph in my portfolio may as well be perceived as a single study. Each is beholding similar characteristics as a reflection of a daydreaming person - one who is very much fascinated by nature, often in an unreal or surreal manner. In this sense, I see my style of photography somewhere between Pictorialism and Impressionism. I try to collide and mimic all the qualities of these aesthetic movements.
I was an admirer of photography long before I went through studies in art and photography at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin, Ireland. I've always leaned towards fine art photography, although the subject matter and the form are hugely important especially while portraying the beauty of natural spaces. I pride myself in my ability to use good old’ analog cameras and also know-how of developing and processing films. I work exclusively with large and medium format cameras. My method involves a lot of experimenting with these tools. I often modify or interchange parts from different cameras, build DIY accessories and lenses that help me to interpret and create those dreamy scapes, organically, on the spot.

Thank you for visiting and for your kind support,

Shop policies

Hello and welcome to my shop.

• I work exclusively with analog cameras, using various film materials, especially color negatives and Polaroids.
• The majority of my photographs are printed digitally using museum top standard Hahnemühle or Canson photo paper in a matte finish.
• Prints are numbered in limited editions and also signed.
• All digital prints are double coated with Hahnemühle UV protective spray, to ensure tonal longevity for hundreds of years.
• Occasionally listed are cyanotype prints, made by me at home using an artificial UV light source.

All prints will be delivered safely in a solid paperboard tube or flat package.

Delivery for overseas orders can be timely (allow at least 10 working days), you can, however, select a ’faster delivery’ upgrade at the end of your order. This will incur an additional fee.

Customs and import taxes
Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I hold no responsibility for any delays due to customs.

Additional policies and FAQs

- Brightness, gamma and color profile settings of your monitor affect how images appear - slight color variations may occur from monitor to monitor. If you are not entirely sure about dominant colors of the print - if it matches your interior needs, please let me know. I can provide a small A5 version of the print to help you decide.

- Fine art Hahnemühle and Canson papers that I use are top museum quality archival paper brands. I use thick (308gsm or 310 gsm), smooth, matte finish, anti-reflecting papers that are susceptible to abrasion. Please use care in handling.
All large photographs are printed on a paper roll, which means they are warped when coming out of the printer. For delivery, I use a solid paperboard tube, and your print will be warped in a protective transparent foil. Your print will not be flat until placed in between mat (passe-partout) and mounting backboard.

- All images in my shop are negative or positive (Polaroid) scans. Hand developed B&W and color films with the help of color processors Jobo ATL 1000 or CPA II. For scanning, I use high-end Kodak/Creo iQsmart2 scanner.

- Photographs up to size A2 (420 x 594 mm - 16.5 x 23.4 in) I print myself in my home studio using the Epson Stylus Pro 3880 printer.

- Digital prints that are larger than A2 will be either printed by a professional lab in London or at fff Studio (Norwegian association of fine art photographers) in Oslo, where I'm a member.

I produce Cyanotype prints with a large ultraviolet light. Cyanotype is a contact printing method, where I apply the negative film on the paper support which I paint with photosensitive chemistry beforehand.
If the desired print is larger than my original negatives, I need to scan it and reprint digitally with large format 24'' plotter HP DesignJet 800 or Epson 3880 printer.


This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

Information I collect

To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to us), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering.

Why I need your information and how I use it

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

- as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such - as by signing up for my mailing list;
- if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
- as necessary for the purpose of our legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services, and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

- Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you our services and comply with our obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
- Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
- Business transfers. If I sell or merge our business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
- Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms, and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with our services and as described in our Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce our agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I are deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have the rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) our processing of some of your information based on our legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from us after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

Frequently asked questions

I have a frame already, do you do custom and personalized orders?

Yes, I do custom sized prints. Please let me know what you're looking for.

How should I look after my print?

Matte fine art paper is a beautiful material. However, it is indeed very delicate. Ideally, you should leave your print inside the protective sleeve until you decide to frame it yourself or hand it to your local framing shop.

Your print should be displayed on walls that avoid direct sunlight, or extremes in temperature and humidity.

Do you offer framing services?

No, I do not. I live in Norway, which is not part of the European Union - packaging and delivery would be expensive if it should cross the borders and oceans.
If you require framing, please get in touch anyhow, I shall find an option to help out via your local framing shop.

Why is the paper larger than the print itself?

I pride myself in my ability to compose and shoot images full frame, meaning, I do not crop images when finalizing for printing. You can see slight fragments of black film negative edges around all my images.

My prints are signed and numbered on the front lower corner of the photograph. It is a custom to leave one’s signature and edition number uncovered - on display. If you, however, don't like the idea, kindly let me know. I will leave these marks only on the back side of the print.

A white border around the image is important. When it is framed, you will have the option to display the whole, uncropped image, but also the possibility to cover it to your liking with the mat.

Do you offer a discount on multiple prints purchase?

Yes, I do, please get in touch!
I can offer no discounts on single print purchase.

Payment plans available?

I'm sorry, I do not offer payment plans. Please get in touch if you're looking for multiple prints purchase, I can arrange a discount for you.
