I had a huge interest in films as a young kid growing up in the north of Sweden, that led to an obsession to try to master the magic that I love. I made very ambitious amateur films as a young teenager that finally resulted in a full length feature when I was 17. It took 6 months of prep, 3 weeks to shoot and 5 years to edit. It was a huge undertaking that included 25 speaking parts with up to 70 extras and building camera cranes and dollies.
At the same time I saw a documentary about a Danish cinematographer by the name Mikael Salomon who was making a big carer in Hollywood working with Steven Spielberg and James Cameron. I was completely spellbound and the notion that this Danish guy could work with my heroes was a realisation that made me decide that I wanted to be a cinematographer.
I applied to a film school in Stockholm and graduated in 1996. Since then I have worked as a cinematographer in Stockholm Sweden, London UK and most recently 6 years in Los Angeles. I have made 10 feature films, a handful of TV dramas and hundreds of commercials and music videos.
