ABOUT


I'm 54 years old. Where did all those years go? I still feel 30 years younger - and that is good - I suppose.

I'm a fairly talented photographer. After 30 years of practicing photography I think I can claim that without sounding to self-centered. Chess is also a passion of mine and when I grow old I'll start to play this wonderful game on club level again. I have participated in the Danish Championship in Correspondance Chess and played on our national CC team. 

I also love math and computer science. Studied it for two years at the university, but had to stop as my interest drifted towards a more commercial education. After three years at Århus Business School I had a BA in Business Economics and some years later I added a MBA from Copenhagen Business School (CBS). For more than 10 years I've been a tutor for E-MBA and fulltime MBA students at CBS.

My business career has unfolded in the following exiting companies. Commodore Data (yes - I'm that old), Acer, Tech Data, Bang & Olufsen, Martin Professional and Strålfors. I've met many fantastic people on this journey and many has become my friends. Please read my full business profile on LinkedIN.

My great passion is photography. I love taking photos and working with people and light. It all started some 30 years ago. My first SLR camera was a Pentax K2. Then followed two Olympus SLR's - the OM10 and the professional SLR OM2n, which I still own and use! Long live film photography.

I entered the digital world with a Nikon D70s and started to expand my collection of lenses and light equipment. My work horse for the past 4 years has been a Nikon D300. Now the fantastic Nikon D800 has taken over this role and a Nikon D600 has been added as a back-up camera.

In addition I have a large collection of analogue Nikon SLR's in mint conditions. I still shoot with my beloved Nikon F3.

x-teams

I've just ordered a new book from Amazon. The name "x-teams" immediately caught my eye as I read about it in the Danish business newspaper - Børsen. The reviewer assigned 5 marks out of six, so expectations are high.
X-Teams written by Deborah Ancona and Henrik Bresman raises an interesting question already on the front cover.
"Why do teams fail?"
The topic of the book is how to build teams that lead, innovate, and succeed. I'll write a short review as soon as I've read it.

SnapScan 9000 - be prepared for a laugh

Can you guess who the nice young man is in the image? It is me as a high school student - important years - where my passion for photography really took off. My god - 35 years has passed since those happy years.

I have just scanned b/w negatives and color slides from these years, and it has been hilarious to see the pictures again. Since many of the images are not something to boast about, the mission was only to get the old negatives and slides converted to digital format. Since I have many pictures from my analog years this conversion process must also go quickly.

Therefore I have just tested JOBO Snapscan 9000. It took med just 5 minutes to unpack it and set up. The scanning process is extremely simple. You install an SD card in the scanner, and then feed negatives or slides into the scanner by the help of various rails and frames - one at a time. The scan process only takes 4 seconds per negative / slide. The scanner has some simple correction options such as built-in color corre…
