Per Olav is a 40-year old autodidact interior stylist and photographer from Bergen, Norway. He uses mainly Instagram and his interior blog “Residence Magazine” as his portfolio.
“I knew very early in life that I loved creating things and taking pictures of it. But unfortunately, I didn’t learn to use my camera until I was 37. Now I love it. I have a real-world approach and I feel very close to nature.”
“I never go out with my camera with a specific idea in mind. I let the streets and nature speak to me and love to create beautiful settings and interior designs for others to enjoy. Working with Canon has refueled my visual eye and made me think outside the box.”
The Local Guides photo competition has ended and the winners will be notified in person. All images shared on Google Maps from May 15 to June 9 is featured in the competition to win the Canon EOS M10 camera.
