Fotograf Leif Salinas 927686236

My name is Leif Enrique Haukeland Salinas.

I'm a Colombian Norwegian filmmaker and photographer.


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

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

By the help of light, shadows, shapes or lines.

When I get to combine adventure and photography,

is maybe when I'm most alive.

Nearly a decade of experience and a variety of projects. In the role as director of photography, editor, camera operator.  From TV, fiction to commercial and documentary.
