I'm a landscape photographer and a lover of nature. I was born in 1984 and grew up in the woods of southern Sweden, so nature has been a big part of my life since a very early age. Being a shy and introverted person, I enjoy the silence and solitude found in the natural wilderness. I much prefer the company of trees and mountains, over that of other people.

I started taking pictures in 2010 (not counting a few years of uninspired snapshots before that). In the beginning my photographs were all over the place, my focus was unclear. After immersing myself in various types of photography for a few years, I have come to realize that my true passion lies in nature and landscape photography.

What I'm drawn to when photographing is quiet moments, clean and thoughtful compositions, and light that reflect the mood I want to portray.
