I am a freelance journalist and photographer living in Norway.
I work for newspapers, magazines and other editoral publications.
Sometimes I leave Scandinavia to experience other parts of the world, but most of my work I do in my own region. I believe there are many, exciting things to explore in the world. Even at home.
I have a degree in biology and ecology from the universities of Trondheim and Oslo, but for many years I worked with cultural stuff. Writing about exhibitions, concerts and movies, visiting film festivals in Venice and Berlin. Today I am very much back to nature, but I do all kinds of reportage. But I am an illiterate when it comes to sports.
Photography is one of my main interests, both privatly and professionally. And I have a web gallery: www.bentehaarstad.com.
Feel free to browse through my galleries and collections. Pictures can also be purchased and downloaded on this website. For private use the price start from about 1 dollar/6 Kr.
