Artist Statement'Don't shoot what it looks like, shoot what it feels like.'
Not my words but a quote from a famous Swedish photographer. I try to live up to this in my photographic work.
I am an enthusiastic photographer with a distinct preference for fine art landscapes and waterscapes. I always try to translate my personal vision into the photograph which is therewith so much more than just a registration of a subject. To move away from reality even more, I tend to use long exposure times and convert the image to monochrome or desaturate the colors to my liking.
This website contains a small selection of my work and should give you an insight of the types of photography I am into. I hope you like what you see. Please feel free to get in touch with me should you have any questions or comments. Many thanks for this in advance.
BiographyI first picked up a camera in my early teens. Living nearby an US Air Force Europe airbase, a subject was soon found. I've spent quite some years photographing military aircraft and I still do this occasionally. When I became more interested in the craft of photography, I started shooting other subjects as well, starting with landscapes. Following a few courses at our local art school brough a technical impulse to my work. The major step forward, however, started with following workshops led by seasoned professional photographers and, even more, with embarking on an exciting photographic trip to the Lofoten islands in Norway. On this trip, all pieces fell into place. I found my signature there, or did it find me? Anyway, a number of other photographic travels followed in which I learned from the greatest photographers. Soon I began to organize our family holidays around photographic interesting landmarks and I have built up a significant portfolio, from which a small selection is shared on this website. Landscapes and waterscapes are still my main topics and I try to limit myself to this in order to keep focus. I have found that photography enables me to express myself, which is quite special for an introvert. I also believe that the images created reflect your personality. Since I like peace, quietness and structure, my images depict that. I still learn every day about photography and feel privileged for the fact that I have obtained an audience that makes the effort to follow and support my work. I hope to be able to continue this forever.
