Story: The older I get the more I appreciate studying history. This is why I always do my very best to bring story telling into the photos I work on.

I recently had a great chance to work on a Viking theme, a story that really fascinates me, although they were pretty cruel back in those days. I listened to Viking music for a whole week, and let the beard grow, to help my mind become a part of the story I was about to portray. I think it is important when you are doing themes like this, that you make it as authentic as possible. Being weird about it is absolutely okay, as it is the end-result that counts, and not how you do it.

If I did it right, you should be able to get a sense of that time, not only visually.
