What does photography mean to you?
For me it’s a way to express my creativ mind and soul. I love making beautiful things come to live in my pictures. Make people think and make up ther on storys when the see my pictures.
Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.
In one word CREATIV. You can use a par of jeans to make a beautiful headband for the model or put a trashcan over the head and call it high fashion without anyone question it. Or use nothing and let the models eyes and body speak.
Where do you get inspiration from?
Anything really, it can be a gordious light that hit on a wall or a location that speeks to me. Working with a model whit a beautifull innocent face really gets me gooing.
Think you in advance what you want in the picture?
Yes and No. I often knowes what I want but Im not sure haw to get there all the time. Try and error is often the way to find out. Dare to do wrong, that’s the way to learn how to creat whats in youre head.
Studio, on location or both?
Location location location….
Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?
Im both. I do plenty of shoots to feed my own creativ soul. But that dont pay my bills unfortunately so my income is from payd shoots.
What has been your most memorable session and why?
I have to say when i met my young relative theat had grown up to be a beautiful little lady and i shoot her very spontanaly with no make up and its one of me best pictures.

Magazines, pinerest, google, my fantasy
