About me

Photography and the love of animals have been accompanying me forever it seems. Initially people were my main target.

When the digital world entered I lost interest for a while, as everyone became a photographer in one way or another.
A safari trip to Uganda about 10 years ago changed everything, I switched focus to the animal world and got hooked.
I adore the landscape and wildlife, particularly East Africa and the arctic regions, but travels have taken me to Brazil and China as well.

Ordinarily I work as a doctor with ENT as my specialty.


Stockholm, Sweden
