Since first entering print competition in 1990, Linge has earned more print awards than any of the Scandinavian portrait and wedding photographers of the 90´s. In 1995 he became the sixth person ever to receive the Norwegian Professional Photographers Association´s (NFF) highest print honor, and in the shortest period of time. In 1994 Linge won the prestigious Kodak Nordic Photographer of the Year, NFF´s Photographer of the Year, received his Master of Photography degree from PPA and won the Scandinavian Fame Portrait Exhibition for the third time in a row.

When Linge began print competition he was told that pictures of wedding couples were the most difficult to score well on. Taking up the challenge, Linge has now had prints of wedding couples in the PPA Loan Collection for four consecutive years.

A member of the XXV, Linge owns and operates Fotograf Linge in Sandefjord, Norway. He has spoken and judged extensively in Europe and, when time permits, in the US. His seminars focus on precise "how to" information about alternative outdoor lighting techniques. For more information, contact from US: Phone 011-47-3346-1150. FAX: 011-47-3346-4565. E-mail:
