My name is Jarle Hovda Moe. I’m 23 years old, and I’m working as a photographer in Norway. For the past four years, I’ve lived and studied in the second largest city in Norway, Bergen. It’s also here my passion for photography, and in particular music photography, has bloomed. Until I moved to study, music had always been a huge part of my life. Unfortunately, moving meant leaving that part of my life behind. A couple of years ago, though, I found a new outlet for that energy; music photography. Even though I, myself, prefer “softer” kinds of metal, black metal has become the genre I shoot the most (this being Norway after all). The aesthetics of the genre is really inspiring, the people are great, and I’ve even come to enjoy some of the music. This is some of the work I’ve done for the past two years, both in the photo-pit and backstage.

We’d like to thank Jarle for sharing his photos. You can check out more of his work on his website and if you like the photographer’s work please give a comment or a like to show your appreciation and if you want your work featured please contact us.
