Bjarne Hyldgaard is an internationally acclaimed Danish photographer. His subject is predominantly portraiture, environmental portraiture, artistic nude and nature.

He finds much of his inspiration in music. This may be any kind of music, provided he feels it has nerve and strikes a chord with him. The music gives emotion and feelings, which under different circumstances can be difficult to put into words.

Another major source of inspiration is international photography salons worldwide. Bjarne currently participates with his art in roughly 75-100 censured salons every year. Competition there may be fierce, but also necessary to drive him to evolve. Progress doesn’t just happen – it takes effort and hard work.

Bjarne Hyldgaard won his first international medal in 1999. Since then he has racked up more than 600 national and international awards, including 17 FIAP Blue Pins. Like in Austria, where he won two gold medals in the worlds largest photo art competiton, the Trierenberg Super Circuit – a competition with more than 53.000 pictures.

And also in Italy, where he not only won medals, but was appointed ‘Best international photographer’ in the prestigious ‘Concorso Francesco Forno’, and traveled to Rome to receive the award in person.

He has been international judge at ”The Golden” (DK), ”Malmö international” (S), the Swedish national photographic championship (twice), the Norwegian national championship (twice), the Danish national championship (twice), the FIAP biennial in Bergen, Norway and the Irish national championship (twice).

His pictures has been on exhibit in Rundetaarn (Copenhagen, DK), the Danish Museum of Photography, in photo galleries around the globe and in the Danish Ministry of Foreign affairs.
