Thorsten Overgaard

Dear editor, journalist, marketing chief, PR-chief, communicaions chief, event-manager, publicist, future bride, architect, executive director and royal highness'es!

When my aunt at a recent 70th year birthday party presented me to the other guests as the Royal Photographer I thought, "Wow, that's perhaps a bit lofty" because no one in need of an ordinary photograph for PR use or for a magazine article dare calling the Royal Photographer!

Because, after all, ordinary photographs are what I make a living of shooting. So please look over this page for inspiration and don't hesitate to ask when, how and how much!

Call, mail or Facebook me – I'll be more than happy to provide ideas and price quotes.


How to book Thorsten Overgaard for photography

I travel all over the world photographing people and atmosphere, judging photo compeitions, teaching workshops and one-on-one. I travel to about 20+ countries a year so chances I come to a place nearby the subjects you needs to get photographed in my style are quite good.

The best way to book me
Look at my calendar here to see where about I am in the world. I have many clients who use me when they can see that I will be in a certain area in the future, and often I plan my workshops and travel so that they align with where I am going for assignments in the future. Feel free to send me an e-mail at thorsten@overgaard.dk for inquiries.

I'm never more than a flight away.
I am currently in:

Gavin Bellour

Portrait photography and life style portrait photography

Hans Blix
Jan Hansen

Business portraits and people

Business paper
Quality control
Market garden

A portrait photo is about capturing the soul or personality, which is why getting a portrait taken should feel like the most natural thing to do - even the result might be extraordinary. Just be your self, and that's why the rools are simple and the instructions natural. I do portrait photography for home pages, magazines, PR, framing, Facebook, etc. Usually I do a series of simple photos as well as more advanced so there's a selection to choose from for different usages. You get the portraits in digital format for print and web, and I can deliver print for archive and/or framing as well.

Architecture, atmosphere and interior photography

Kontormiljø   Villa   Chefkontor   Køkkendesign
Office atmosphere
CEO's office
Kitchen design
    Holst, advokater
Aarhus Teater
Holst Law
Trykkeri   Villa   Møkken-interiør   Fabrikshal
Printing facility
Kitchen interior

Every month I produce 6-10 pages of magazine articles on architecture and have an extensive production of architecture, corporate atmoshpere, interior design, etc. throughout the year. A series of photos from your company make great material for the art director to make a great website, brochure or magazine though few companies have had them done before the met me - because you mostly think in specific photos and not all the photo opportunities I can capture while walking around for some hours.

Conferences around the world

The Africa Commission
Video documentary

UN Secretary General
MP Christine Antorini
Tim Rasshirt

In covering events, conferences and meeting I capture atmosphere, official pictures and press photos so there's a good archive to choose from. I usually work all over the place without getting in anybodys way and without the audience really noticing me.

Interviews and editorial photography

JP Business
Aalborg Stiftstidende
The Entrepreneur
Microsoft Update

I've done a great deal of interviews for magazines, webpages, newspapers and client magazines where my strengt is that I'm one person who can get both the story and picture. And one person is less expensive to send than the usual two (the jounralist and the photographer). But also, story and picture does go better hand in hand when done by the same mind.

Event photography

Hotel D'Angleterre
European Film Awards
European Film Awards
Odd Molly
Odd Molly
Odd Molly World Premiere

I cover Fashion Weeks, music festivals and the like, but also more 'private' events, seminars, speeches, award shows, parties, fashion shows, grand openings, receptions, product launching, etc. I do both atmosphere, details about what and who was there (as a memory card for the event makers), official press photos, gift photos, etc.
If the event is of broader interest, I can help with getting the official press photos onto the wire services such as Associated Press, WireImage, Getty Images, Polfoto, etc. which is where the media usually go look for pictures for their coverage.

Wedding photography, confirmations and family photos

Bryllupsfotografering   Familiefoto  
Family Photo
Atmosphere from family event
Wedding atmosphere
Confirmation atmosphere
Confirmation portrait
Red Carpet

My wedding pictures usually are less official portrait photos as well as atmosphere photos of the event. I don't use flash and I don't use big noisy cameras. I would love to do a "red carpet" arrival at a wedding where I set up proper lamps and shoot all the couples in high quality so they can enjoy their dress, hair, jewrely, shoes, ec on the prints you send out after the wedding!
Photos of children I usually do in your home, the kitchen or a park - I don't believe kids belong in a studio.
