Weekend wreck special

Norwegian newspaper Fædrelandsvennen ran an 8-page spread about the wrecks on the south coast this weekend. IThey used my images to illustrate the story, and interviewed me about wreck photography.

The newspaper is published in Kristiansand on the Norwegian south coast, well-known for its many great WWII wrecks - several of which I have visited over the last years.

Fædrelandsvennen ran a big wreck feature in their weekend edition on May 5th, highlighting Seattle, M-1104 Jan Hubert, KNM Kjell and SS Savonmaa in separate stories.

M-1104 Jan Hubert, one of the four wrecks highlighted in the weekend wreck special in Fædrelandsvennen.

On the cover

In addition to the four wreck stories they also interviewed me about what it is like to dive on the wrecks and what I do to photograph them.

I think they made a great job with the layout, and my images were presented very well along with the short but interesting stories. It was also a nice surprise that one of the images of S/S Savonmaa was chosen for the cover (right).

If you're interested in diving any of the wrecks on the Norwegian south coast, I would advise to get in touch with One Ocean or Nortech Diving - they can both help you get a great experience.
