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.
A house full of hearts
Finding special places where you don’t expect to find them is one of my favourite things. And finding a house full of hearts and poems was very special when I was I Sagres, Portugal.
I’ve been traveling again. From Stockholm to Norrbotten, to Sagres in Algarve, Portugal and then back to Norrbotten again. My personal guide and reflections to what I liked to do in Sagres illustrated with my photos, and of course, surfing and cats.
Desert Point, Lombok
A story about an amazing morning ride in a Indonesian fishing boat along the Lombok coastline to get to Desert Point surf spot, and what I saw on the way. Also, how photographing affects me and what motivates me to travel to different places.
I got nominated!
My contribution to International Photo Awards that got noticed and nominated. My thoughts, and some tips, about the nomination now that the contest is over, and I’ve let it all sink in that I was among the finalists.
I’ve finally gotten to set up my web shop on Shopify, starting small with three products but will be adding, and removing the store.
I’ve visited places where only music used to take me
A summary of what I’m doing and a realisation of how much time it takes to set up a photography business, like keeping up on social media, entering competitions and trying to get noticed. And, a declaration of love to the city of London.
I think I’ve figured it out
Reflections about my travels and photography during the pandemic. And if, and why, I might have PTSD and life in general. Also, photos to two photo exhibitions.
