Photographer, director, producer


Dear visitor of my home page. Most welcome. Here you can have a look at my work with documentary films and still photos. If you get curious enough about a film or my photo book you can easily buy them by clicking on Contact.

Maybe you have a fantastic story that ought to be told. Send me a mail and we can see what happens.


Since I managed to burn down (by mistake) my work-shop for manufacturing furniture in 1990, I started making 16 mm films with the insurance money. Since then I have spent almost all my time producing films in one way or another. I am so thankful that I have the opportunity to do what I like the most.

Photo Albums

Early in my life I got stuck in the dark room, completely losing track of time. Since then I always take a lot of stills. Here I present a couple of albums. One shows photos from my time as photographer for a music magazine about black music. One album shows portraits taken in connection with my work as a camera-man for TV. Right now I work as a still photographer for the magazine Rocky and I plan to show photos from these very amusing jobs as they are published.

Ammarnäs Film Festival

The festival has run successfully for three years and the 2016 festival is planned as we speak.
