Welcome to my portfolio!

I am a coffee-loving, down to earth photographer living in the northern parts of Sweden, outside Sundsvall. I specialize in interior, food and portrait photography.

I've always been known to be passionate about food, and when I got my first camera during high school, all I did was photograph everything on my plate. Something that hasn't changed much! 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 love and feel inspired by nature; to wander barefoot during summer, cook outside over an open fire and explore a dense forest. I do enjoy each season, but my favourite is autumn, with it's crisp air, soft light, fresh smells of harvest and all the lovely, warm colours. This all comes back to my photography. I use ambient light as much as I can and have a soft spot for rustic environments, time-stained wood and worn, vintage props. The colours in my images are often those found in nature. Rich, cozy and warm, like autumn, or dark and murky like a deep forest clad in mist.

I am available for assignments and commissions. Traveling is not an issue.
