Fotograf Leif Salinas 927686236

My name is Leif Enrique Haukeland Salinas. I'm a Colombo-norwegian filmmaker and photographer.

It would be hard to describe my style.

In everyday life I love the candid, in-between moments,

Searching for irony, humor, or something just simply beautiful.

I'd like to make whatever I shoot attractive,

whether by help of light, shadows, shapes or lines.

When I get to combine adventure and photography,

is maybe when I'm most alive.

Worked with a camera for 8 years, and been a part of various ranging projects from fiction to commercial and documentary.
