I am 29 years old and have been photographing for about 10 years. I went to art school, but soon realized that I actually liked better to take pictures of what I made, than actually making it. So I started working in a local photography store, earning all the basics about DSLR cameras, developing film etc. Later I went two years at a photo school in Norway, which learned me to tell stories with my images. From there I went on my own missions to photograph tribes and people who do amazing things. In addition to photography, I’m a professional breakdancer and play around 200 theatre performances every year.
Q: How would you describe the aesthetic of your website in three words?
AR: Clean, easy to navigate, and great content
Q: How often do you typically update your website?
AR: Like every other photographer, I’m way too lazy in updating my website, but with the new liveBooks8, I feel that the barrier to update has become smaller and with the new easy to use interface it’s actually fun!
Q: How do you choose the photos that you display on your homepage?
AR: I always try to put out my best work, the images I feel stand out in my portfolio. I also try to tell stories. For example, my Tribes portfolio, I have a wide range of pictures, because I feel I need to show all the pictures and not just the five best.

AR: My favorite new feature in liveBooks8 is the possibility to easily adjust the image galleries and add new galleries and photos.
Q: What’s one piece of advice you’d offer to someone designing their website?
