BIO

I'm a professional cinematographer based in Sweden and Finland. I'm a member of FSF (The Swedish Society Of Cinematographers). I graduated from the Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts (SADA) in 2010 with a Bachelor's Degree in Cinematography.

 

As a cinematographer, others recommend me because of my fine sense of camera movements and compositions as I always strive for perfection. There is a high precision in my work, as I'm continuously looking for the maximum expression in visual storytelling and I have a good sense of using light as a tool to paint the cinematographic canvas.

 

Over the years I have done several different genres and styles of cinematography. I'm always open to all kinds of film projects and my experience ranges from feature film, TV series, commercials, music videos, and documentaries.

  

I have experience in both technical complex scenes with advanced digital effects and with a full-size technical crew to manage, but I also have experience working by simple means in which the narrative story and the subjective imagery is the film's heart.

Technically I handle the majority of all digital film formats (Arri, Red, Sony, Panavision, Canon, Blackmagic) and photochemical formats (Super8, 16mm and 35mm).
