Fight night!

POW!

Spent a few hours in Halmstad to shoot some gents and gals hitting each other full power. First time I used the Canon 5d mk II and 28-70 mm f2.8 L for MMA/thaiboxing, but I think it worked out really well! Started off with a 50 mm f1.4, but I went for the flexibility and superior quality of the zoom, rather then bigger aperture.

Have a look at the full album!

A bunch of good-timin’ lads!

OBSKLASSEN

Haven’t been shooting a lot of live music performances so far, but this was a really nice gig from my friends OBSKLASSEN. I was just trying out my brand new Canon 5D mk II, and was using a 50 mm f1.4, no flash. Happy with the results, got a good feeling!

Show me the pics, damnit!

Birds of Sri Lanka

Kingfisher on the go!

I can think of a lot of worse things to do than to spend a month on the tropical island of Sri Lanka chasing exotic birds with my Canon 100-400 mm tele lens! But to identify all the different species is a whole other story, which I hope to get to soon enough.. Anyways, here are the pics

Summer in the north

Land of the Never Setting Sun

To spend midsummer in the northern part of Sweden is actually something pretty spectacular, even for a born and raised swede like myself. Kalix (one hour drive north of Luleå) is located right below the polar circle, which means that in the summer the sun never really sets, and vice verse. The whole night is nothing but a long sunset, with the sun only dipping its feet in the horizon before its time to rise again.

Check out some photos from the trip here.

Kalix/Jukkasjärvi 2013

Kalix/Jukkasjärvi 2013

This year I got a chance to go really far up north to visit Kalix and the Ice Hotel in Jukkajärvi to get some nice photos of real Swedish winter! I wanted to capture the Northern Lights as well, but unfortunately the weather was a bit too cloudy to make it interesting. Ah well, there’s always next year I guess. However, I DID get to see some action packed rain deer-race! Check out the photos from the trip here.
