Biography

“In my work, it is often more important to be a human being with a camera than to be a camera with a human being behind” 

Eirik Evjen, born 1989 in Oslo, is distinctly present and authentic in his approach as cinematographer and still photographer. He mainly does commercial and documentary work, often a perfect mix of both.

 

He is driven by an inner restlessness which brings him to new adventures, being a new mountain to climb or assignments in the middle east. This also pushes him to continuously develop his visual language. His strength lies in his curiosity and by being solution oriented.

Most of his life Eirik has spent on film sets, either in front or behind the camera. Since he finished his education at Bilder Nordic in 2013, Eirik has been a well sought still photographer within architecture, lifestyle, portraits, and film posters – latest “Amundsen” in 2019. As a cinematographer, he is often prefered by film directors because of his skills, mindset and personality. Eirik has been represented by Tinagent since 2019.
