About

MonicaElise


I was born in the spring of 1972, on the west coast of Norway, in the municipality of Haram. Here I am surrounded by ocean, fiords, mountains and ever changing light...

In the summer of 2009, I started photographing (amateur). It very soon became a big passion. I feel alive when I am outdoors with my camera. I feel free...
