Publications. Bjorn’s images and articles have featured in countless magazines, journals and books over two decades.

Teaching. Bjorn’s teaching skills gained him an edge. “Teaching only works if learning is accomplished. Learning should be enjoyable and rewarding”. Bjorn.

Judging. Bjorn takes his responsibly seriously. “If trained properly judging isn’t as subjective as some assume. Being knowledgeable and objective is key, poor judging can demoralise”. Bjorn.
