Getting Ready for Norway

posted on: April 23, 2007

Since Alex and I have been so busy lately, we've hardly had any time to really talk about what we'll be doing while we're in Norway. The reason for the trip is because my husband is giving a keynote presentation for the Bergen Interactive Music Conference. The conference is also held in conjunction with Bergenfest, an international music festival for indie rock and electronic music. I've been told that I'll have backstage access to the festival, which could lend itself to some pretty interesting photo opportunities. ;)

Here's a little map to show you where in the world we'll be... notice direction #18? Google maps crack me up!

Here's what the weather will be like... looks like I'll need some sweaters and an umbrella...

In order to charge our laptops and camera batteries, we'll need to take our adapter that looks like this...

And here's a video preview of the hotel we'll be staying in for the first week...

I'd say we're pretty ready to go. I had an ambitious list of things I wanted to get done before Norway and even though I put in 80 hours of work this week, I wasn't able to finish them all, so I'm going to try to get some things done while I'm in Norway... but previous travel experiences have taught me that may be an unrealistic expectation as well. If you're waiting for me to finish a project, I thank you so much for your patience and understanding!! Once I get back from this trip I will be able to spend a lot more time completing unfinished projects. My goal is to eventually hire and train someone to take care of the things that I'm really picky about and put the most time into - which is pretty much everything that happens to the images after they are captured in the camera! Unfortunately that won't be able to happen for a while yet since last year's prices were too low to support an additional employee, but it's definitely in the works for the future- especially since it would mean that I could shoot more if I had someone I trusted handling more of the back end that I obsess over.

Keep your eyes open for updates from Norway!! I can't wait to share this trip with you!
