Welcome to my website

Since my early youth I have had an ever growing interest in both nature and photography.
In the years when my own reproduction and caring for my family had first priority there was no time nor money to pursue the goals of my dreams - the creation of awesome, astounishing images of wild creatures seldom seen by human eyes.
I still try to achieve that goal, but as I have grown older I have realized that by lowering my goals the chances for success increases.
If my images can help to bring awareness to the beauty of the smallest of creatures to the urban people I will be pleased.

As the digital revolution entered the photographic world the interests of my youth were reawakened.
Since 2003 most of my leisure and a lot of my economic surplus has been spend on nature-photography. A lot of my images are shot in the local areas on Funen, Denmark, but I also travel near and far to find objects of my interest.
Particularly Sweden with its wild nature and great biodiversity has often been the destination of my trips.
My main interests are insects, amphibians and reptiles and occasionally plants, but as the season for those objects only covers roughly 3/4 of the year, I have recently spend time on both birds and mammals.

My highest hope is that my photos will contribute to the awareness of the necessity of nature-preservation.
