Interests / Hobbies:
I love to socialize! Hanging out with my friends is one of the best things I know. It is really wonderful to be with the ones you love! Then of course photography, that’s my biggest passion in life! I eat, breath and live photography and it is what I one day want to do full time! Then comes music. I play the guitar and sing (as many photographers do for some reason 😉 ) but unfortunately not as often as I’d like really. Other things that I like to do on my spare time is web design, work out at the gym, play poker – particularly the Texas Hold-em, billiards, watch movies, read books. You know, the usual stuff.
5 things I wish I had in my camera bag:
1. Nikon AF-S 14-24/2,8 G ED
2. Nikon AF-S 85/1,4G ED
3. More SB-910’s
4. Nikon SD-9 battery pack’s
5. Gossen Digipro F2 Light Meter

I’ve been blogging since:
September 2008, all in all, but on this site since December 2009. I’m from Sweden and pretty much all of my readers are from Sweden so my blog will most likely be in Swedish since it is most convenient.
What’s the blog about?:
The blog is mainly about my passion for photography, design and technology. But you’ll also be able to read about my daily life, future plans and other stuff happening in my life.
Photography is truly my passion and I hope you will like what you see here on my website!
