Welcome to my crib! So who am I?

Robert Qvist Photography My name is Robert and I’m a 32 year old Swedish guy living in a town called Trollhättan, 40 minutes outside of Gothenburg. I’ve been working at serveral camera stores as a salesman and studio photographer and I’m also the editor in chief of the rock and metal Magazine Crankitup.se.

In my private life I love to socialize! Hanging out with my friends is one of the best things I know. When I’m not doing that, of course there’s the photography part of things, 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! I also love music. I play the guitar and sing a lot (as many photographers do for some reason). My love for music and photography is of course the reason I got into concert photography in the first place. Other things that I like to do on my spare time is web design, work out at the gym, play poker, play pool, watch movies, read books. You know, the usual stuff.

I’ve shot for:

– Rock Magazine Crankitup.se (Also Editor in chief)
– Swedish film festival Novemberfestivalen
– Camera store Lindhes Photo in Trollhättan
– Music Magazine Twist Magasine
– News site BoomMoments.se
Elitphoto (“model for a day”)

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 for me.

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!
