hello all

I'd like to introduce my self here, even though I am not a subscriber (yet - there seems to be trouble...)

I am a teacher in photography, working at a folk high school in the very top of Denmark - Europe....

I am autodidact in photography, and have been addicted for some 20 years or more..

Formally a musician, but the photography somehow just took over...

I love the different types of cameras, so I like to play around with all kind of formats.
my preferred camera would be:

135mm: Topcon! (have almost all the lenses, so I am covered)
120: Rolleiflex SL 66 E. (a formidable camera)
toy: Diana F (so much fun - but also in all serousness)
large: Sinar Norma
even larger: GANDOLFI High Precision (only because it is the most beautifull camera I have ever seen...)
larger than larger: unknown 30x40cm mahogany. (I have difficulties finding film, though..)

I mainly do nudes and portraits - and some stills

I most often paint with light, as I like the unknown factors and as I can fully be in controll of this light (if successfull)

I ever so often Kills my negatives.

90% or so of my images I print using liquid emulsion.
I also love to do photopolymer gravures - cyanotypes and oil prints.

in Denmark Photography is not art. by law.
so nobody will buy my stuff (or I pretend it is of that reason ;-))

so I teach. that's fun too!

I'd love to show you some of my stuff, but untill the subscribing issue is solved, I can't.
I, however, have a home page for you all to go-see...

that's about it. this seems to be an interesting site. I hope it is.

best regards

Welcome, Emil. There are lots of fine folks here (myself excluded, of course), including quite a few other autodidacts (myself included this time).

Emil - welcome, but be aware that Denmark is South to some people here. There are members living noth of me, too!

Men velkommen skal du være!

hi Emil

Welcome to APUG. Another Dane here (from Århus). Your website is GREAT!
I saw your work at Danmarks Fotomuseum in Herning some weeks ago. It is GREAT.

Greetings Morten

PS.: Jeg er medlem af AFA i Århus, og selv i gang med alternative processer. Specielt fotopolymergravure er jeg i gang med at lære.
