Olav come from a place just outside Oslo, Norway. He first picked up a camera at the age of 11. 2 year later he took his first snowboard photo, and got his first photo published in a major publication.
By the time he had finished elementary school and was starting junior high, Olav Stubberud was traveling all over the world shooting snowboarding, but displaying a reflective array of styles. He quickly became known in the snowboard industry, and at the age of 17 he was nominated as Photographer of the Year, and at the age of 19 he won Picture of the Year at the Norwegian Snowboard Awards, making him the youngest winner ever of this award. Two years later he also won Video of the Year with his childhood crew RK1 (read more here), this made him the only one holding two awards in both video and photo, something that reflects his current position and skillset by doing both in a big scale.
From a desire to expand and challenge him self, Olav began working with musicians and artists. He shot the first ever press photos of Kygo, which was the start of being Kygo's trusted photographer for 3 years.
Further he continued to be the first choice for some of the biggest names
not only in music and sports, but other categories as well.
Current time he is the one that get called when history is being written, and for Olav - photographed.
He believes in the long route, no shortcuts. Honouring the old ways of doing it. Something that makes him a bridge between the present and the past.
