I am originally from Sweden but both parents are polish. For the last 15 years I have been living abroad (Norway, UK, US, Australia) but now I live in Switzerland. I started with photography in 2003 where I took landscape photos. I didn't want people in the photos. Now I am the opposite! Recently I looked back at my initial work and in one way it is embarrassing because the photos are terrible but at the same time it is great to see that I have developed over time and managed to find my style. I try to stay as natural as possible which means I don't do much in Lightroom or Photoshop . For me, light is everything. If you got great light and use it to your advantage then you don't need to do much afterwards. I like clean photos which means I can remove objects which disturb me (If I can't cut them out when I take the photo of course).

I had walked by this place when I went for a hike with my family. When we arranged this session we met at sunrise. I knew I wanted to go to that location but I didn't have the image in my head. The image came to me when I saw the sun coming up and how the light fell and created shadows.

It was funny because I had my 200mm lens and I was at least 150-200meters away from them, so I had to call my assistant by mobile phone and pose them. It took some time but it was worth it! The couple did - I wasn't aware of this - but the entire slope was full of cow poo! But they managed to avoid it and got to the top!

Since they are so small in the photo I wanted to ensure one could identify them individually. This is why I asked them to stand apart, hold hands and kiss.

Nikon D700, 18-200m f2.8, Max Zoom! Around 10-12 photos taken in a vertical position and then stitched together.

I usually you spot metering and then checked the histogram.

I stiched togeter 10-12 photos, cleaned up the slope (as there were tracks on it - i still left some but not all)

Love this photo. A lot of work behind it. Woke up very early, long walks for the client and myself and the result is great! The couple loved the photo!

I usually shoot weddings alone, without the help of a second photographer. This allows me to have a complete insight of the event, to better understand peoples relationships and to

The idea with this shot was to capture the moment and the vibes of this wedding part. In Israel there are religious weddings and there are parties with a lot of "acrobatic" things
