Picture this: You are driving down the side of the road and pull over to take a photo. What makes you stop?

Step aside sunset, I am looking for a lonely tree or a flock of birds.

One look at your feed and we become mesmerized by the color palette. Is this intentional or unintentional?

These are the colors of my every day — clothing, interior & architecture I gravitate towards. So for my photos, it is the same. I always look for white or grey backdrops with a colorful object or details.

What is in your photo toolkit?

Because I take a lot of self-portraits, I typically bring a tripod and a remote trigger with me. Other than that, I like to keep it light weight. For editing on the road, I use mainly Snapseed.

It looks like your lens takes you all over the globe. What´s your favorite place to date?

Finnish Lapland in winter. It was such a surreal experience and so different from anywhere I've traveled before.
