About me

I’m Stina. I’m a thirty something that got tired of the cold winters of Sweden and ended up in Melbourne (someone should have told me about Melbourne winters!), where I now spend my days capturing memories.

If I were to describe my style it would be candid. I like to be a fly on the wall, capturing moments as they unfold, rather than staging them. I want my images to reflect real feelings, not faked smiles. It’s all about capturing the event and story that’s happening right in front of my lens.

I shoot all digital, but have a thing for that old school film look. I shoot with professional-grade gear, using two Canon 5d Mark III’s, a range of prime lenses that allows me to shoot in dark conditions along with all the flash you’ll need for any dancing or party shots.

At parties I’m that one weirdo that clutches to their camera, stops talking mid sentence to quickly take a series of photos. I just can’t help it. Over the years the camera is not just my work equipment, it’s me. Yes, I know that sounded corny, but I’m having a hard time not sounding corny whenever I get to talk about cameras. Although as I’m a keen advocate for doing what you love, I think this is a good thing. Nah, it’s a great thing.


Around four years ago my husband and I decided we were done with cold and dark Sweden. Within a few months, we set off on an adventure. We didn’t come straight to Australia however – we took the scenic route, which included a year and a half in Ghana, before settling in Melbourne. We now live in a warm little apartment in Abbotsford with a view of the Yarra and trees. Hopefully there will be a dog there soon too.

I’ve always called myself creative. Before throwing myself head first into professional photography I worked in marketing and as a designer. Then, around seven years ago I got my first DSLR. It wasn’t long until I was completely hooked. That little camera followed me everywhere I went, and to this day I almost always carry a camera with me. Without one I feel naked, and I’ve learnt that even the most unremarkable outing might hold in itself a magical moment, one that needs to be captured. Every outing (or inning) is an adventure and a story that I want to tell.
