Even though Esben was born into a family of artists, he initially decided to pursue an economic degree.
This act of rebellion did not last, as he soon discovered that his passion leaned more towards understanding the dynamics of photography than economics.
As his self-taught photography skills grew and his passion for spread sheets declined drastically, Esben started up as a freelance full-time photographer in 2010.
He now lives with his girlfriend and their two adventurous boys in Odense, Denmark. From there he travels all over Denmark and Europe, working with high-profile clients, ranging from the superstars of sports to CEOs for major companies.
A classic trademark of Esben’s work is using his surroundings to capture the storytelling for the given photo.
As soon as work permits it, you will most likely find Esben on one of his adventures – whether that being out snowboarding, mountain biking or hiking.
