Biography

Sigve Aspelund, born 1974 in Oslo, assisted the acclaimed portrait photographer Dag Eivind Thorenfeldt before embarking on a career as a commercial photographer. Sigve frequently works with Norway´s finest creators in advertising, and has an almost built-in understanding of creative marketing and art direction. Sigve´s long experience, combined with a set of exellent technical skills – in both pre and post production – has erned him quite a few awards, and his ability to lift any kind of creative idea, from sketch to finish, is truly

remarkable. Agencies such as T/A/POL, McCann, ANTI, Los&Co, Saatchi&Saatchi, Ernö and TRY/APT has made good use of Sigves ability to ”see what others simply ignore”, resulting in great campaigns for clients such as Volkswagen, DNB, Tom Wood, Olssøn Barbieri and TINE. Sigve has also started directing commercials – combining his interests of both film and photo – with great results. His photographic expression is that of great variety, where no project is ever too little or large.
