Sport photography is basically about taking pictures of the sport and capturing the moments when they happen.
What does sports photography mean?
Sport photography is basically about taking pictures of the sport and capturing the moments when the player is in action. Without an audience, sports would be nothing and therefore sport photography also includes the audience.
A good sports image conveys a feeling. No matter what sport you are watching, it is inevitable to take part in many emotional moments. The truth is that without all these feelings, sports would not be anything.
I help you capture those moments in my photographs, everything from joy and anger to disappointment and surprise. I mainly focus on the player but the audience is also important in conveying emotion.
Experience of many different photography assignments
One day is never the same to the next when it comes to photo assignments and not least when it comes to sports photography. Here the days and assignments can look completely different depending on what kind of photographs the customer is asking for and what sport it is.
I have many years of experience in photographing events and competitions, most notably golf.
Because I have worked with different types of customers who have had different wishes, my area of knowledge is wide and I am well prepared for all possible situations that may arise.
Weather and game schedules can never be influenced but with careful planning everything is possible.

Sport photography hand in hand with media
The main reason for photography in professional sports is the media. As a sports photographer you usually work for magazines, agencies or special sports magazines where the images then end up. Sports photographers are also used for the purpose of advertising, to build a brand or to promote a sport that might otherwise not be featured in the media. I photograph everything from golf to motorsport.
Sport photographer with base in Västerås, Sweden
When I am out on sport assignments, I always photograph different types of pictures so that you as a customer can then have a large variety of pictures to choose from. In order to succeed and get really good pictures during sports photography, the first step is the most important. We sit down with the customer and find out what is important about the image and what it should convey. In order to be able to get different emotions in the pictures, there are different types of camera settings used. Thanks to long experience in sports photography, I have learned a lot and tested a lot to get a good image that you as a customer will be happy with in the end.
