Freelance Advertising Photographer & Commercial Photographer

Location:Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand
2 Skills
My dream with my photography is to document the lives of the third world and the undeveloped countries people for FN ore UNICEF. I have wanted to make people aware about serious failing of humanity in our world’s societies since I was very young, this you can see in my involvement in different kind of argumentum articles in news papers and so on. I’m passionate and caring about people, that’s why I have been active in a political party, been a peer supporter and been sitting in the board of the school council –during my upper secondary school time- to be able to fight for peoples rights and make a difference.
Since I believe in myself and are very go-ahead of me, and I’m strong both psychical and physical, I know that I can do this. I want to make a difference, so I will make a difference.

My photography
I value the content of my photos highly and I put my personality into them in a one of a kind way that could be described with the words: Strong, proper, mystic, creative and to that a bit excentric.  I close to love to push the limits just to get That shoot. I’m not afraid of climbing past “do not pass this point” signs and put the camera on my back with skies on my feets just to give it a try, limits aren’t there until you create them yourself.

My many years as active and involved in different athletic games, both as wielder and leader, have made me a good team worker and an experienced and accustomed leader both to known and unknown people. I am capable of listening to other people’s point of view and see their opinion before I make a decision. I’m close to being a control freak, and the structured part of me that loves to take responsibility and sort things out make me a good organiser and planner.

I’m much for sports, have been cycling my whole life, Muay Thai, go to gym (both group trainings and weights) played indoor bandy and basket ball as young. Before I got my waterproof camera I didn’t like water but since I realize how much possibilities underwater photography have I have started to enjoy it more and more. The same is about the car, since I got my drivers license my interest for cars grown bigger and I realise how much you actually can do from the trunk of the car while someone else is behind the steering-wheel…
