Photographer & Film director  - Stills and Video

Raise Your Sights

I work as a full-service photographer, film director and producer in Stockholm & Cape Town.

If you are an in-house agency or a flexible and quick working ”regular” agency you will love the way I work. Let's get in touch.

1. Full service

One person for your whole shoot. I take charge from pre-production to delivery of your end-product for commercial purposes with video and still photography.

2. Efficiency & speed

I work fast without losing the creative touch or the final details. High-end delivery is key for me and always will be.

3. Reliable delivery

I’m in it for the long-run, and have some of Sweden’s biggest companies on my client list. Enhancing your brand is my priority.

Mood of Lygrell

Another glimse of what I shoot

Egna projekt


I´ve been a freelance photographer and filmmaker since 2009. My passions are the natural light, working in fairly small teams and to make shoots look stunning no matter what the circumstances are.


My way of working is built on a lot of trust, and I love to feel involved in the whole process of a project, from start to end. Not “just” holding the camera. I have realized that this also makes life easier for you as a client and the outcome of the work we do much better.  


My goal has always been to make shoots more personal, fun and a bit of an experience for everyone involved. If you share this passion with me please get in touch!
