The north and south coasts aren't too shabby either.
Then there's Jotunheimen. And Telemark.
Ole's right: what do you want to photograph? Pretty scenics? Urban decay? Immigrant communities? Vast crowds of lunatics in national dress waving flags, playing fiddles, dancing, drinking and singing songs?
I refer the honorable gentleman to the answer I gave earlier.... :-)
The whole of Norway's coastline is fantastic from a seascape perspective. Truly. Even the bit between Trondheim and Mo i Rana that all the guidebooks ignore.
That said, I would head for North Norway around Easter time. I went there to climb in late March and early April a few years ago and it was a stunning aesthetic experience. Very oddly-shaped mountains, fantastic light, and plenty of snow and ice about to add highlights and contrast to what in summer can be rather monotonous rock.

Nice photo Ole. The kind of place I'm looking for.
I have a few more questions.
If I go the month of June, will I be able to find accommodations in the small towns as I travel, or is the tourist season already going strong and many motels/hotels are booked already? Is it too buggy, mosquitos and midges in June. They can really make life miserable. I know in other cold climates like Alaska, June is just awful with bugs.
I might try to go as early as april, are the roads clear and the motels open? Also If I plan to travel north and west does it make sense to fly into Oslo?
I figure on spending 4 weeks there is that enough time to really explore the coast? I'm thinking of Lofoten, is that place really special. Also any large predators to be aware of?
I know it's a bunch of questions and i appreciate the help. Thanks
