Henrik Knudsen is an award-winning photographer based in London. Having studied photography in his native Denmark, he is influenced by a Scandinavian aesthetic of dark winter nights and bright summer lights. Henrik’s use of space and atmospheric lighting is inspired by his interest in film and cinema. He likes mixing natural and artificial light sources, always with the aim of telling stories of people and their environment.
Henrik’s client list includes British Airways, HSBC, GSK, Vodafone, Canon, Samsung, Bombay Sapphire, BT and McDonald’s as well as magazines such as The Smithsonian, Elle Decoration, Der Spiegel and Destinations. He has also shot many charity campaigns and projects for UK Government departments.
