Photography has always been one of my passions. I got my first camera from my parents when I was twelve years old and living in Sweden, my home country. It was a rather simple Kodak bellows camera. At age thirteen I was able to use my father's Zeiss Ikon Super Ikonta and I was hooked. Later a Contaflex was followed by a Nikon S2 and eventually by my dream camera, the original Nikon F.
When I retired in 1999 as controller of Gustavus Adolphus College in Minnesota, I finally had time to devote to photography. It was my intention to dust off the old darkroom in my house, but it is still collecting dust. At the time digital photography was being perfected and I found it much more convenient than film and chemicals. Except for some occasional frames with my Hasselblad Xpan, I now use only digital cameras, presently Nikon D700 and D300.
I have not had any formal training, but during the last ten years I have been fortunate to be able to participate in workshops led by Jim Brandenburg, David Muench, Tom Mangelson, Arthur Morris and Todd Gustafson. I have been able to share my images at several exhibits and shows in the United States, primarily in Minnesota and in the western states. This web site is another way for me to share with you. All the images are for sale. The contact page tells you how to reach me.
