My company

I started my own company in 2002, a year before I finished the Nordic School of Photography. This summer I will have my 16th anniversary. Working as a freelance photographer has been a journey all the way. I have worked for major newspapers in Sweden including Svenska Dagbladet, Aftonbladet and Sydsvenskan – for which I have worked both as a freelancer and have had longer temporary positions. I have done my own photography projects in for example Istanbul Turkey, California USA, and Manchester UK. My latest exhibition Innerlighet was shown at Church of Sweden in New York January – April 2016. I have a long experience of doing a lot of different kinds of photography including portraits, stories, editorials and business magazines. I have also worked with many different companies and done short documentary films. Having ran my own business for 15 years I have not only learnt about photography but also what it means to run a company in terms of contact and relations with different clients, business, and marketing.
