Your Bio

Hello and welcome to my photo galleries, where you can see my underwater photos taken on the west coast of Sweden, where I have lived since 1968, and on diving trips abroad. I've dived since 1988 but didn't become interested in underwater photography until about 2002. It added a new dimension to my diving and I hardly ever dive without a camera these days. I started with Sea & Sea's simplest point and shoot camera (MX-5) and then progressed, in September 2003, to a Motormarine II EX. The u/w photos in my Excel gallery were taken with the MX-5, all others up until July 2005 with the MM II EX unless otherwise stated.
In July 2005 I bought a complete used Nikonos V kit which I later expanded with dual strobes, more lenses and extension tubes and a back-up camera. In the autumn of 2007 I sold my much-loved Nikonos V’s and bought a used Nikon F80/N80 SLR film camera with an Ikelite underwater housing. I loved the camera but didnt like the housing, so I sold it and bought a used Sea & Sea housing. I also bought a used Nikon F100 (a professional 35 mm SLR camera) and Sea & Sea housing.
In May 2009 I finally went digital. I bought a used Sea & Sea DX-D50 underwater housing on e-bay and a used Nikon D50 here in Sweden. In July 2010 I upgraded to a Nikon D80 and Ikelite underwater housing with dual Ikelite SD51 strobes. As I wanted to reduce the weight of my rig on land, I now (since 2013) use an Olympus E-PM1 micro four-thirds mirorless system camera in an Olympus housing with the 14-42mm zoom lens or Micro 60mm lens and dual Sea & Sea YS-01 flashguns connected to the housing by fibre-optic cables. I use Photoshop Elements 6 to edit the images.
