PHOTOGRAPHY

Photography for me is all about passion. A passion for the handcraft itself but also for the subject infront of the camera. Without the passion for and the connection to what you photograph, the reality will never be able to transform to the digital world in an honest way. The photographer must truly see the subject to transfer it to virtual reality. My passions in life besides photography are travel, adventures and music and by combining them with my photography I believe I can get a honest, truthful and powerful result that affects people.

ADVENTURE

The outdoors and adventures are something that has become a bigger part of my life over the years. In 2016 I hiked the entire 2650 miles long Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada. I know whats an adventure is all about and I’m not afraid to be apart of it. Not all days are fun days but even these are part of an adventure. I also run the adventure blog wilderness-stories.com which is a website where I write about my own adventures but also help others to get out in the wilderness themselves.

TRAVEL

Who doesn’t like to travel? See new worlds, amazing sunrises and mountains? But as a Travel Photographer your interest must goo deeper. It’s not just about the epic views or the spectacular scenery. It’s about telling a story, a story about a place and its history. To be able to do that you have to have an interest of getting to know the country and its people, understand their background and culture. Come close. I’ve always found different lifestyles than what we think is ”normal”, interesting and something I happily try and explore. In my own life I’ve aa couple of times changed my comfortable home to spending months living in my van and I’ve even spent half a year in a tent. By showing people other ways of living, other parts of the world and how the history have shaped it, I think we can make the world more conscious and more understanding for other people and their way of living.

MUSIC

Music has always been a big part of my life. As a kid I collected records and visitied numerous of music festivals each years and now I’ve been working with the industry for over ten years. I’ve done everything from magazine storys, promotion pictures, record covers to covering big music festivals as their official photographer. When I do Music Photography, the artist and its music is always central. For a musician, their photographs are just as important as their style or other visual elements. The photographs shall represent and work as an extension for what they are doing. I want the music to be heard by just looking at the photographs.
