A wildlife photographer from Sweden residing on the small Mediterranean island of Malta. From an early age I was passionate about animals and the natural world. Before Animal Planet, Nat Geo Wild and the likes, I was always glued in front of the weekly nature program on Swedish state television. No matter if it was lions in Africa, wolves in Yellowstone or Polar bears in Svalbard, I practically grew up with Sir David Attenborough’s voice at the back of my head.
