Our Story

Vallerret was founded in 2014 by fellow Winter-loving photographers.

Founders Stine Lyng Jørgensen and Carl van den Boom have been chasing Winter for as long as they can remember. Combining exploration with snowboarding, they have followed the Northern Lights in Swedish Lapland, mushed sled dogs in Alaska but mostly spent their time chasing snowfall around mountains in Europe.

When you love Winter just as much as you love photography, you know all about how sensitive your hands are to the cold. As many Winter-loving photographers before them, Carl and Stine struggled to keep their hands warm enough to get the shots they wanted. Most sessions turned into a battle of comfort versus results, which left them opting to head inside for the warmth or leaving the camera in the bag altogether.

In 2014, tired of compromising and fighting the cold, Stine and Carl committed to start making the product they hadn’t been able to find: a funky and functional photography glove – a perfect glove for cold weather photography adventures.

Vallerret is based in Voss, Norway.
