Pictures are fun

When I was in my twenties my boyfriend’s father lent me a camera. A few fumbling efforts later I was caught. Photographing was such fun I decided to turn it into a profession.

Today, I’ve worked as a professional photographer for more than 15 years but photographing is still just as fun. I love the variation of the commissions and the alternation of working in a team or on my own.

In my work, encounters are transformed into pictures. Through the years, my commissions have varied: I started off with portraits and reports but today I work with food, articles on interior decoration, gardening-reports and books. I also get commissioned to work within different areas such as contributing with artistic decor in old people’s homes.

Through the years, I’ve developed my flexibility and skills to co-operate, trained my creativity, broaden my general knowledge and built up a great network of people connected to my business and myself.

Also, the years have given me a family and a home in Nacka outside Stockholm, complete with a garden and a sauna. My Finnish roots crave a wood-burning sauna…

I gain inspiration and energy through reading, in the jogging track, when travelling, through friends, films and when I busy myself with different kinds of crafting – everything from cement casting to knitting. And the camera is usually with me on these occasions too.
