San Francisco: Vegar Abelsnes

Vegar Abelsnes is a global lifestyle, location, portrait, and food photographer based in San Francisco and New York.

At the age of 19 he left Norway to go travelling around the world in search of a greater purpose. After nearly two years of exploring Vegar discovered the irrepressible desire in him to photograph. Photography has subsequently developed beyond a vocation into both a profession and a lifelong passion.

Vegar strongly believes in creating a collaborative environment on his shoots and is known in the industry for the subtle, yet effective ways in which he directs his talent and crew. His ability to capture spontaneous and authentic moments without sacrificing technical or aesthetic perfection is a testament not only to Vegar’s professionalism, but also to that of his team.

His personable approach makes for a fun and relaxed atmosphere, regardless of the size and complexity of a production.
