Welcome to my portfolio. I am a coffee -and food loving photographer living in the forest up north in Sweden, outside a town called Sundsvall. I specialize in interior, food and portrait/lifestyle photography.

I've always been known to be passionate about food. So when I got my first camera during high school, all I did was photograph everything on my plate, everyday - and post it online! Something that hasn't changed much, and lately I've come to appreciate every aspect involving food; cooking with friends, setting the table and sitting down together to share a great dinner and experience. (As well as spending money on cookbooks and food magazines…).

I am a very down to earth person, I love nature and to see the seasons change. My favorite is autumn, with it's crisp air, soft light, fresh smells of harvest and all the lovely, warm colors. This all comes back to my photography. I use ambient light as much as I can and have a soft spot for rustic environments, loads of time-stained wood and worn props bought second hand. The colors in my images are often rich, cozy and warm, like autumn, or dull and dark like a deep forest clad in mist.

I freelance and am available for assignments and commissions. Working on location as well as traveling is not an issue.
