Hilde lives in Oslo, Norway, and makes a living as an independent consultant in IT and telecoms. Travelling and photography have been her favourite hobbies for more than a decade, and she tries to get a few months off to travel every year. The last few years her favourite destinations have been the polar regions, such as Svalbard and Antarctica, but she likes to look for amazing motives and situations on all continents. Her interest in photography has developed from holiday snaps to more focused work, and most travelling is now done specifically for photography. After a few very inspiring photography workshops, she has recently started studying photography at The Open Collage of Arts in the UK.
