I am all about Wildlife and Landscapes images. I want to capture the beauty of the landscapes and the character of the mammals. In my nature photography, I travel to exciting and amazing places but I also create images in the nature close to my home on Östgötaslätten. In my nature images, I want to show environments and tell stories. Stories about amazing sunrises, cold blizzards and fantastic wildlife.
I am a professional nature photographer and run the business “Wildlife and Landscapes”. I am also a travel guide and workshop leader for Wild nature photo travels. Teaching post-processing in Lightroom and Photoshop is also a main occupation for me. As an honest and true nature photographer I am a member of the Swedish association Naturfotograferna/N.
I use Nikon camera bodies and lenses. Leofoto is my main choice for Tripods and Point 65 for backpack. For my landscape photography I use Lee-filters and I drive a Dacia Duster.
I have a partnership with Wild Naure Phototours as a teacher of nature photography and travelguide. I also hold courses in Lightroom and Photoshop.
