Hi, I am

Tor-Arne Pettersen

Who am I

A technology junkie who loves gadgets, web design, movies, and drones.

Professional Drone Pilot

In 2017 I bought my first drone to be able to take exciting photos and video for my web design clients, I didn't know then that I would become a professional drone pilot. But that's how it turned out when, at the beginning of 2022, I was contacted by a startup tech company, and offered a job as a drone pilot. Since that day, I have enjoyed flying drones of all sizes, from those that only weigh a few hundred grams to drones with a diameter of just under 3 meters.

So yes, my job is simply to travel the world and play with toys with insane price tags.

I am a certified pilot in classes A1/A2/A3 and have extensive experience with operations in extremely demanding conditions.

When I'm not out and about, I also offer my pilot expertise as a freelancer in photography and video.

Freelance Web Designer

Before I started traveling the world flying drones, I ran my own company for several years. There I helped both small and large companies get their perfect website set up and looked after their online presence. After a while, combining this with my daily job at a startup became difficult, so in early 2022, I ended my company Webstr.

But this doesn't mean that I have stopped developing websites. To make the workload a little easier, I now instead offer my services as a freelancer- this way I'm free to take on work when I have some free time, without having to manage my own business.

I started developing websites back in 2013 and have managed to build 50+ excellent sites for all sorts of people, from solo entrepreneurs to large corporations.

Hobby Photographer

I've always been interested in photography, so I make sure to always have a camera with me when I travel. That way, I can capture all the interesting things that our world has to offer.

My favorite subjects are usually nature and animals, but when I see something else, the camera is always nearby.

I regularly share my photos on my instagram and in my picfair gallery.

YouTube Creator

I love web design and online business, and I love helping people. It's only natural that I share the experience and knowledge that I've acquired with other people.
On my YouTube channel, I share videos about WordPress, business online, and tools that make it easier to succeed online.

A bit of random trivia

  • My photographs have been shown in galleries both in Johannesburg, Melbourne, Chicago, Barcelona, Berlin, Athens, Minneapolis and New York
  • I taught myself to ride when I was 4 years old on a bike which was way too big
  • For several years I was known as HobbyKokken Tor and was one of Norway's most read food bloggers
  • I probably have more gadgets in the house than screws in the wall
  • I have a house full of Lego sets with themes from movies and TV
  • Get in touch

    I know how it is, sometimes an email just feels like a bit of overkill, so if you don't feel like it, I totally understand. But how about sending me a little message on social media.
