Olof has been involved in video and photography since he
was a teenager. He was the studio manager and photographer for
Graphics in Westport, Connecticut and worked on video and film
shoots in NY City. Over the years Olof has enjoyed challenges such
as shooting on the summit of Mount Washington in winter in 100
MPH wind, from a helicopter over the Old Man of the Mountains,
from a speeding patrol boat off the coast of Florida and
directing large groups of children for family attractions. Sharyn
applies her writing, editing and musical skills to productions
like Summer in the White Mountains, TV commercials, jingles, and
work for Camp Sunshine, a camp for children with life threatening
illnesses in Casco Maine.
We’ve been married for over half our lives.
We met at Boston University’s Program in Artisanry. We then
together went to Stockholm, Sweden where we attended “Konstfack” the
Royal Institute for Art and Design. On our return to the United States
we moved to New Hampshire, built our house and then the studio. We
are both state juried craftsmen in the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen.
Sharyn used to record piano pieces using a cassette deck and a
microphone hanging down inside above the hammers. The music took
us to synthesizers, recording with an eight track reel to reel
deck, and finally to digital recording when we were asked to produce
The Weather Notebook, an NPR radio show. Along the way we began
to produce music for Sharyn’s children’s theater and
then we decided to add video production.
Olof has always loved photography, film and design in any media.
He built our house, designed and built other houses ( including
the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen shop on Main Street in North
Conway) and worked on his fine, one of a kind furniture. He had
built analog computers while in high school and when the first
home computers were available he had one (a TI 99-4A). And in
1988, Sharyn bought him a Mac Plus.
Things haven’t been the same since.
