Where is home?
I live in a city called Uppsala not far from Stockholm.
What brought you into photography?
I started with photography two years ago when I came across Instagram and realized how fun and easy it was shooting and editing with my iPhone. Since then my interest has escalated and I constantly try to develop as a photographer. I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished so far and hopefully, it will continue this way.
Which camera do you use?
I use an Olympus Omd e-m10, which is a great entry level DSLR in my opinion. I would like my next camera to be the new Olympus Omd e-m1 mark II.
What time of day do your prefer to shoot, night or day?
I shoot mostly daytime but I’m fascinated by night-time photography and looking to do that more often.
Did you go to school to study photography?
No, all self-taught.
What’s something people would be surprised to learn about you?
Difficult question but perhaps that I’m working as a lawyer in the financial sector. For me, photography is the perfect way of escaping that formal environment and to acknowledge my creative side in a different way.
How would you describe your photography style?
My photos are often clean and in some sense minimalistic. I always try to capture a special feeling with a dark and moody touch. I’m also quite creative and especially when working with different companies/brands. I like to levitate the products in a creative way in order to make the photo more interesting.
The Fox Magazine is all about inspiration, what/who inspires you the most?
I find my inspiration everywhere, especially from magazines, movies, music and of course from looking and studying other photographers.
If you had to choose one lens which one would it be and why?
I don’t have experience with so many different lenses but the one I use the most is Olympus 25mm f/1.8.One lens that I would like to try is the Olympus 7-14mm f/2.8.
What’s the best part of being a photographer?
For me, it’s to explore and experience different places and to capture a special feeling. A dream would be to work as a travel photographer.
What’s your best advice for aspiring photographers?
I can use some good advice myself, but I think it’s important to try everything, you won’t know what kind of photographer you are until you try it. I think it’s important to study the work of other photographers and learn from them but you should always do your own thing.
