The photographer: 'I'm 41 and originally from Sweden. I moved to London in 1995 for what I thought was 3-6 months. Little did I know I would be here near enough 20 years later! I'm currently doing an advanced diploma in photography in my spare time and carry my camera everywhere (I've even fitted some padding in my handbag so it doubles up as a camera bag).'

The setup: 'I initially had a starter Nikon DSLR that was pretty much point and shoot in automatic mode but as I developed and got more into it (obsessed) and got more fluent on the manual side I upgraded to a Nikon D7100 which I have fallen I love with. I have also invested in some ND filters which i am experimenting with at the moment, there is also a zoom lens 70-300 which I use for my macro and wildlife shots.'

The work: 'I love the colours, vibrancy, amazing skies and of the autumn as well as the blue hour at night just before the sun goes down. I never get tired of London's architecture - the old and the new getting along side-by-side. It really excites me when I just choose an area to capture and head there, like Borough Market, Shoreditch or by the Thames.'
