Welcome to my new webpage :) I'm super happy to share it with you and to share my new logo with you! You may have noticed that my most recent photos have been coming out with a new logo!
So where does the concept come from? In my native language of Dutch the phrase 'met de baard,' translated to 'with the beard' sounds quite a lot like my last name Mac an Bhaird. Naturally this became apparent when I started wearing a beard at school etc. A few different groups of friends came up with this independantly so it stuck. When I moved to Oslo in 2013 I took my beard with me and I started organizing a blues dance festival. The ever majestic moose epitomizes Norway for me so it naturally became our symbol. Moose Blues was born. Check out MooseBlues.no!
My co-organizers were two very lovely and talented women which meant that there was only one beard between the three of us. This quickly cemented me as being The BeardMoose and it has stuck ever since.
Now a great concept is great but that's about as far as it will get you. You can develop that idea yourself or if your artistic talents lie elsewhere then it's best to enlist a little help from your friends. In this case I turned to one of my Moose friends: Francesca. She has done a great job on other logos we worked on in the past so it was a natural choice. Suffice to say she did a great job and you can see the results here on my site and as a watermark in all of my photos!
Here is a photo that I took of Francesca back in the fall of 2014.
As this is my first blog post please let me know in the comments what you would most like to hear about! I will be posting about all the events I went to with my pictures and videos but what else would you like to read about? Would you like to know how I took specific pictures? Would you like to know what gear I shoot with? Would you like to know about my travels? Would you like to have some features on my friends?
Takk for nå!
