Canon Nordic Photographer, Sweden

What type of photographer are you?

I shoot people for a living and beautiful places for myself. I started doing concert photography at age 20 and moved on to portraits and fashion over the years. I´m also a photographer that works for equality and have a passion for inspiring others!

What are your favorite motives?

I love to shoot strong and cool girls! And to work in a team to create a dream world.

Which products do you use today?

Canon eos 5d mark IV with my favourite lens 28-70 mm f/2,8. I also use 16-35 mm f/2,8 and 70-200 mm f/2,8. I love the flexibility you get with zoom lenses.

Can you tell us about a photo moment which you will never forget.

When I shot my first concert, Mando Diao at Sticky Fingers in Gothenburg. It was love at first sight. I didn´t really know what I was doing but I loved doing it. And that moment changed my life. It made me become a photographer.

Can you give an advice to someone who wants to develop in photography.

Work on your vision more then the technique. That´s how you develope a personal style. If you don´t know what you like you are lost. Look at a lot of pictures and analyze them. Who do you want to be as a photographer? What is important in your photos? What do you want to tell the world? And then take a lot of photos and allow yourself to fail and learn from that. Over and over again.
