About

2018-01-24_08-02-34-01Photographer based far above the arctic circle in Kiruna, Sweden. Fortunate enough to live in the subarctic where the northern lights frequently light up the night. This shows in my photography which more often than not features those magical lights in the sky.

My aim is to show the wonders of the night sky accompanied by earthly elements. To get people interested in astronomy and start looking up.

Sadly a starry sky isn’t that easy to find anymore due to massive amounts of light pollution on this planet. If we, stargazers, amateur astronomers and astrophotographers, grow in numbers maybe we can change that.

I’ve written a beginners guide to aurora photography, you’ll find it here:

how to photograph the aurora

 

 

My work has been published in books and magazines, web publications and newspapers.

I’ve been awarded a NASA APOD, was once named one of the best astrophotographers in Sweden and I’ve been shortlisted in the Insight Astronomy Photographer Of The Year competition.
