Welcome to Dandy With Lens

First of all, welcome to my blog, Dandy With Lens

Bjørn Christian Finbråten - Dandy With Lens

My name is Bjørn Christian Finbråten. I’m the guy behind Dandy With Lens.

If you are like me, you like living the good life. If you are not already successful, you know that you will be. Success is not free; it requires planning, execution, patience, and determination. Forget working evenings and weekends. To stay ahead of your competition you need to:

  • Work smart
  • Have patience
  • Stay productive
  • Dress for success
  • Stay motivated and focused
  • Be a unique asset to your network
  • Know how to take time off and relax
  • Enjoy life while doing all of the above


This blog is divided into six sections in alphabetical order :


This section is dedicated to all those smart things that we cannot live without. Here is a mix of product reviews and how-to articles.


Here you will find general information about gin and gin based cocktails, as well as posts about truly unique places to enjoy this elixir of life.


In this section, I share some of what I have captured trough the lens. In the menu, you will also find links to my Instagram, 500px and Flickr accounts.


Here I share posts about how I plan and execute work. You will find information about Getting Things Done (GTD) and tips on how to work smarter.


This part of my blog is dedicated to men's fashion and accessories, as well as gentlemanship.


In this section, I'm writing about traveling as well as some selected destinations.

Why the name Dandy With Lens?

From the start, I intended to start a photography blog where I occasionally would write about other things like productivity and gadgets.

When I launched the blog, in June 2016, I got tons of positive feedback on everything, except my photography-related blog posts. I guess that there is a lot of photography blogs out there, but very few blogs are dealing with the mix of topics that I now cover on my blog.

I have kept the name Dandy With Lens and will, from time to time, post an occasional photo but will try to relate it to some of the other topics on this blog as well.
