ABOUT ME - Alice Bjerke

My name is Alice and I'm a 24 year old girl from Oslo, Norway. Ever since I was 10 years old, my life has been all about horses and show jumping. It is true as they say, that equestrianism is a lifestyle, and it is a lifestyle that lets me develop and gain experience on many different levels and areas. Not only am I a rider who, until recently, competed in show jumping for many years, but I am now an aspiring show jumping trainer and student of Sports Psychology and Coaching.

I am a perfectionist. That may be sole reason for why I'm behind the camera instead of in front of it. Judging from my experience and impression from friends, most show jumping athletes love having their competition pictures taken. I always had a very clear idea in my head of how I hoped the pictures would turn out, and in an effort to get the desired outcome, I took the matter in my own hands. Taking good competition photos for my friends became a "thing", and people always expected me to bring the camera to every show. They still do, really.

I love photography and capturing the moment. It's all about capturing that very split second before it is gone, especially when taking photos at show jumping competitions. The horses have finished jumping in the blink of an eye, and the hunt for the perfect shutter moment never tires me. 

Photos make us relive our greatest memories. I could spend days looking at photos from vacations and old competition photos, reminiscing about the past. I hope I can provide you with such photos, that you will never grow tired with.

My selection of cameras and lenses: Canon EOS 7D Mark IIaccompanied a Sigma 150-600mm OS HSM Contemporary and a Sigma 18-300mm DC Macro OS HSM Contemporary. Canon EOS 450D, paired with a Canon EF-S 18-55mm and a Canon telescopic zoom lens EF-S 55-250mm.
