BE YOURSELF AND EXPLORE THE THINGS YOU WANT TO SEE

I was very interested in photographing things that, from the ground, didn’t actually look as appealing as I thought they would from a bird’s-eye point of view. That’s how my journey with aerial photography began.

So I kept exploring and playing around with environments and subjects that interested me until I found what worked. You have to be yourself if you want to be successful in drone photography. By that, I mean you must photograph and film the things that stand out to you. Shoot it like you see it. The more honest you can be to yourself in your images, the more they will stand out to others.

BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS

Knowing your location before taking to the sky will help you prevent accidents. Scout the location from the ground, if at all possible. The more you know about the environment, the better your photography will be.

ALWAYS BE OUTSIDE, TRYING DIFFERENT LOCATIONS

The only way to better your chance of capturing something amazing is to get out and shoot. Experiencing different locations and environments will only further challenge you to push the capabilities of your drone.

Eventually, you’ll know a good drone spot before you even see it from the air.

STAY CURIOUS

The curiosity I have of seeing something new for the first time is what drives me. I love seeing things from a perspective no one has ever seen before.

If you’re not curious, why did you get a drone in the first place?

Airpixels at Fotografiska

It finally happened ! My first exhibition is now up and running at Fotografiska and i couldn't be more proud and happy with how it all turned out. It was a treat meeting so many of you already on the first day of the exhibition and i can not describe how happy i am that i got the chance to talk and listen to so many of you. A big thank you to Mathias Sjöström for helping me produce and display my images just the way i wanted.

So, I am one of the exhibitors in this years edition of Fotografiskas exhibition The Autumn Salon that is running from 6 October — 3 December, 2017 at Fotografiska in Stockholm. If you are around or close to Stockholm i suggest you go have a look. It is definitely an amazing set up and i was truly inspired by all the photographers in the Exhibition.

The Autumn Salon at Fotografiska is the largest juried exhibition of Swedish photography. It is a tribute to Sweden’s photographers, established as well as amateurs, open to everyone who resides in Sweden. This is the fourth edition of Fotografiska’s Autumn Salon, which showcases Swedish photography as its best.

Fotografiska’s Autumn Salon has established itself as a tradition that holds up a mirror to our times. With its wealth of expressions, emotions and techniques, the exhibition captures the Zeitgeist and presents a kind of collective, subconscious reflection of contemporary currents, comprising everything from personal photographic projects developed over time, to professional photographers who use the camera as a tool in their artistic practices. This year nature takes a front seat.

An Imaginary World

I created a new film and i hope there will come a lot more from that department in the near future. I have around three years of unseen Aerial Footage saved and as soon as i got some spare time i will put that into creating personal projects like this. The film is shot with my drones DJI Phantom 4 PRO and DJI Mavic Pro and edited and graded in Adobe Premiere Pro.

Airpixels X Fjällräven Classic

The journey begins in a birch forest in Nikkaluokta (Sweden). 2000 adventurers ready to hit the king's trail and walk the 110km from Nikkaluokta to Abisko National Park. It’s an epic journey in a vast, rugged wilderness way above the Arctic Circle also known as the Fjällräven Classic. Alongside with trekkers from all around the globe i set out on a adventure i will always remember. Despite the different levels of experience in the outdoors, we all shared the same love for nature.

Small dreams can become big adventures

The walk is very long and at times you have to do it in very hard conditions. Along the way you will meet people who eventually will become your friends. Friends that will help you when its tough and laugh with you when it is easy. It's a connection between people that is hard to describe but actually exist. 

 

The King's Trail

The King's Trail

Surrounded by natures giants and Swedens highest Peaks you will walk in a trashfree environment with permission to camp anywhere you see fit due to the right of public access we have here in Sweden. Water is free and provided by nature for you to drink whenever you are in need but don't waste it.

As always when i am out and live completely on the outdoors i learn a lot of new things about myself and my love for nature always grows stronger. The Fjällräven Classic is definitely something i will do again and hopefully something you will join me in doing for 2018. If you did the Classic this year feel free to reply with your experinces around the event.
