They’re horses, not ponies
My meeting with the Icelandic horses during my visit in January and a reflection about using a camera versus using the camera that’s in my phone. Also a bit about the benefits of entering photo contests and the iPhone Photography Awards.
Gran Canaria, you surprised me!
My travels along the winding roads in the mountains of Gran Canaria. A bit about landscape photography too and why not a mobile phone is the best option to capture the scenery.
Feeling the warm sun against my skin
My iPhone photography from my first days in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria. Sometimes the phone surprise me with what it can do. Like capturing a bird in flight. So use your phone for photos too, at least you have a memory of how you saw the world.
Sámi National Day
A wish for a Happy Sámi National day, and many more to come. With a photo I took above the arctic circle just after the midnight sun had disappeared for a short while during one of my road trips during one very special summer.
Winter at the Arctic Circle
A short “Hello” from me about my recent travels to Iceland and New York, but mostly about how life is up in the north of Sweden in the wintertime, especially Kalix where I’m based. And what you can do up here during the winter.
Sony World Photography Awards
My view about entering photography awards, this time it was the Sony World Photography Awards. And is it really possible to compete in photography. Also, what does I as a photographer learn from entering photo contests.
It’s the same moon
Another photo I’ve submitted to a photo contest, this time it’s LensCultures Art Awards. And some reflections on what photos, the moon and the sea mean to me. Furthermore, what photo editing does to me and how I can transport myself back to the moment I took the photo just by editing, or looking at…
Once again a photo that I submitted to a photo contest got noticed and will be featured in a calendar for World Meteorological Organization.
Reindeer at midday
I did a road trip to the place I grew up in, Övertorneå in Swedish Tornedalen close to the Arctic Circle and Tornea River, where I met some reindeer. I’m doing a short summary of the culture, history and activities you can do all year round in these parts of the world.
Let’s protect the sea while it’s still there – and we’re still here
My underwater photographs that I took in Amed, East Bali this spring and it’s also my contribution to Aquatech Image Solutions contest “The Life of a Water Photographer”. And some notes of what made me feel completely connected to the whole world.
