Nature (mostly) photographer from Stockholm, Sweden who makes a living as a full time employed IT Manager. Photography is my everything else – it is meditation, exercise, creativity and at best – pure happiness.
The images on my portfolio page have been chosen because they represent my best work so far, and will look really nice printed and on your wall! For a somewhat bigger and less strict selection of images, please check out the gallery page – most of these images are of course available for print purchase as well should you find one of interest – contact me if that is the case! And for even further images you are welcome to my Instagram and Flickr accounts.
While not a birder, birds are great subjects for wildlife photography, and the bigger the better. I am lucky enough to live near a colony of Grey Herons – these birds are absolutely fantastic to study and capture in camera – which is why they have a section of their own in my small portfolio. In addition to this I do quite a bit of macro or closeup photography. Less interested in creating extreme closeups of bugs, and more in capturing an interesting combination of shapes, structures and colours, though often with a bug in there somewhere! At some point there will also be a section with my non-nature photos on the site – stay tuned for more about that!
In nature: Respect for everything living should always be at the core of every aspect when photographing nature – true success comes from capturing that special moment without causing disturbance to either plant or animal – or human for that matter. In post-production: I try as much as possible to stay true to the moment as experienced on location – if the image requires major operations in Photoshop to make me happy, it was not a good enough image to begin with. Favourite editing tool is Lightroom, where more than 95% of the editing is done.
I shoot almost exclusively with Nikon equipment – at my own expense. Tried my fortune with both Sony Mirrorless and Fuji (both great systems by the way) but my hands felt most at home when gripping a Nikon, so there you go. For my macro work I currently use non-Nikon lenses though (Sigma 105 and a brand new, very cool Irix Dragonfly 150). As much handheld as possible, but occasionally a tripod or even monopod comes in handy, especially for certain types of macro work. Natural light only for outdoor work, flash possibly for the occasional studio production.
This is a WordPress site, with a Pro package for photographers (by Themegoods) as base, and then tweaked to my liking. More functionality may come with time, but the focus for now has been to create a clean, modern site with full attention on what matters the most – the photographs. Hope you like it!
