About me

I have carried a camera on my shoulder with great joy and curiosity since I was twelve years old. I am educated at the Dramatic Institute in photography, dramaturgy, sound and lighting, as well as editing. I also have a diploma from the Swedish Photographers' Association from the education Authorized Digital Image Supplier. For ten years I was hired by Nikon to train other professional photographers. My clients are companies, advertising agencies, publishers and magazines, as well as major TV broadcaster.
I am also an author and have won several awards in Sweden and internationally for my pictures and books.


A collaboration with me means a responsive resource that comes up with ideas on how Your company can reach out and communicate even better. I have an efficient workflow, which frees up more time for You as a client. Every picture tells a story which is a useful tool when writing with character limitations for i.e. magazines and books. I have extensive experience of working with journalists, even in difficult conditions around the world.
