Being a professional commercial photographer, whose images have appeared in campaigns for global brands, it is important for me to collaborate my commercial work and personal work. I value both in different ways. Since my commercial work almost always involves elaborate staging and sets, people, etcetera, I try to get away from that in my personal work. Instead, I aim for a more organic approach where I can to with forms, textures and colors in a graphic way. I aim to provoke the viewer’s senses.
