Niklas is raised halfway between Stockholm and Oslo, in a small and beautiful village surrounded by dense forest and hundreds of small lakes, and ponds. Growing up in such an environment it is no surprise that Niklas has great appreciation for photography in nature.

It is mainly landscapes that Niklas photographs, and then above all intimate landscapes and motifs that are stripped-down and subdued. This type of photography gives him an opportunity to express himself and show the elements of nature that most people miss. It is also rewarding for him to be able to show a completely new type of motif through abstraction.

Over the years, his photography has taken him to various places in Sweden, from Abisko in the north to Skåne in the south. And also to international destinations such as the Faroe Islands, Iceland and Scotland.

Although Niklas appreciate visiting new places with new motives, he often return to the same place to document it in all seasons and weather conditions. By returning to the same places, he do not have a time pressure to find the motives compared to visiting new places, but can instead focus on getting the best possible pictures. A bog close to his home area is a motif he often returns to.

Niklas has exhibited at different occasion in Sweden since 2011 and been featured in multiple Swedish media channels.

In post processing Niklas do very little, instead, he puts time and effort on composition and exposure during the actual photography. Striving to capture nature at her best makes the processing of the images nice and easy.
