About Vegard

I was born in 1991, and grew up surrounded by wilderness in a tiny village in Western Norway. My childhood gave me a fascination for nature and wildlife that only grew stronger when I got older. As a teenager I also fell in love with skiing and climbing. I am now based in Sogndal, a small town not far from where I grew up.

My photography is mainly focused on nature, wildlife, and extreme sports. I also do commercial work for different clients through my company VERI Media AS.
