"...for me, a great Cinematographer/Director of Photography is the directors ”right hand” to tell and visualise the film. A problem solver and, for the camera team, always ahead and on top of the game.

I take great pride of being well prepared for any project.

As a Cinematographer, my duty is to comprise all on-screen visual elements, including lighting, framing, composition, camera motion, camera angles, format selection, lens choices, depth of field, zoom, focus, color, exposure, and filtration. I have more than 15 years of industry knowledge to solve problems, enhance the films style and keeping up with the given budget.

I´m shooting films including high-end commercials for IKEA, drama series for Swedish Television, SF & ViaPlay as well as award-winning, international documentaries.

Being known for my calmness on set is actually my way of staying focused and delivering the visual depths that my director and producer aims for as well as keeping the production happy.

If you are my next director, producer, camera or production team collaborator, let´s meet up now. I would love to hear your next story! "
