Even as a child he knew what the career of his dream was. Bjarni B. Jacobsen wanted to become a photographer. The Dane strives for a natural look so being able to control natural light has become an important part of his photography.

"In elementary school, I read a book about kid detectives who solved a crime using a SLR-camera. From then on I wanted to become a photographer myself."

Bjarni B. Jacobsen began his career by photographing the toy figures and soda bottles on his desk. He soon converted his bedroom into a darkroom.

After studying advertising photography, Bjarni started his own photography studio in Copenhagen. His working studio is located in an old factory with many large windows.  Having such large windows has allowed him to utilize the natural light in his photography. Bjarni always strives for a natural look, regardless of whether he is using daylight or flash.
