Fourth place in the Norwegian Championships


The Norwegian Championship was held during the first weekend of September, and I came in fourth after a decent performance.

Not having been in the water for about half a year is not the best preparation for a splash-in competition, but nevertheless I was quite pleased with the portfolio entered in the championship.

The jury was half-way in agreement with this, and rewarded the wide angle shots with a silver and a bronze, whereas the three macro images landed in 5th place.

This landed me in the somewhat sour fourth spot, behind Lill Haugen, Thorbjørn Rusnes and Vidar Skålevik who claimed the medal spots after strong performances.

Here is the portfolio I entered (article continues after the images):
{vmproduct:sku=0979-04092010-4478}   {vmproduct:sku=0979-04092010-4452}
{vmproduct:sku=0980-04092010-4722}   {vmproduct:sku=0980-04092010-4725}   {vmproduct:sku=0980-04092010-4740}

The images was entered in the following categories: Wide angle with diver, wide-angle without diver, fish portrait, theme category (lines) and macro.

I had excellent modelling and critter-finding help from world champion underwater photographer Espen Rekdal, but even this was not enough to break into the overall medals this year. But thanks for helping me out - you did a great job!

The championships this year was held by Ålesund Sportsdykkerklubb, the dive club in the beautiful city of Ålesund on the Norwegian west coast. Kudos to everyone involved in the organizing, as this was an exellent performance the club should be proud of.

Thanks to everyone for a fun weekend!

I'll have to shape up for next years championship with more diving and photographing if I want a medal, that's for sure...
