Kristian Pletten

As a Norwegian I was born and raised with the Scandinavian philosophy of outdoor life called «friluftsliv», which describes a way of life that is spent exploring and appreciating nature.

When I cycled across Africa in 2011 I discovered my passion for slow adventure and slow traveling which ultimately led me to buy a sailboat in 2015. I lived aboard for two years and sailed along the Norwegian coast singlehanded during winter.

In 2017 I met Ronja Raknes and in 2018 we had our first vacation together where we drove from Norway to Central Asia and back.

Today I live in Bergen, Norway and work as a photographer and filmmaker in collaboration with Reklamekollektivet among others.

Whenever I’m not on a job I spend my time exploring the vast amounts of mountains, fjords and islands here in Norway.

In my photography and filmmaking I try not only capture what’s there, but also the subjective emotion of being there, in that very moment.
