I run my own photography business in Malmö and work with international corporations to smaller companies, all needing to visually promote their products and services in the best possible way. With my pictures I strive to create an expressive and strong visual impact. It could be with a complex light setup, minimalistic composition or whatever that may fit the image concept, but it must never be dull or hollow. In every assignment I try to always challenge myself, driving my technical skills forward. I´m a photoshop geek, who loves making the image get a new dimension in retouch. The last couple of years I have moved on to also take on film assignments as a cinematographer.
How did I end up here.
2001 is the year I moved from Gothenburg to Malmö to study Graphic Design as a twenty-year old. After graduation I started to work as a graphic designer in a global communication team at Sony Ericsson, where we were designing catalogues, leaflets, bringing photography & films to life among a lot of other things. Working a lot with external photographers at Sony Ericsson, brought my interest to life of becoming a full-time photographer myself. When oppurtunity arise, I started to assist the acclaimed Danish advertising photographer Peter Krasilnikoff in Copenhagen. After hard working years in Copenhagen I started my own business in 2009.
Who am I.
As you landed on this page I assume that you´re interested in who I really am.
But who am I to write about myself? Instead I wrote an open question to all my Facebook friends if they could summarise me. I won´t bore you with the whole thread. They were basically saying that I´m a really nice guy. Sweet, funny, caring, happy, confident..hey, I´m not trying to brag here, just summarising!
Some highlights from the fb thread below:
You are a wonderful son. Peaceful, confident, funny, good at distribute work, a bit muddled hehe. Do you want something negative as well? Ask someone else!
