Long time no see

It’s been a while since I updated this blog and website. One of the reasons is lack of inspiration. I have also shut down my photography business.

But I’m starting to feel the urge to great and share. Both photography and films but also painting and drawings. The latter is something I’ve done before I picked up a camera. 
I also want to restart my online shop. I have some ides of things I want to offer.

I’m not going to promise anything but I can promise that I’m feeling more and more inspired!


On to a different topic! During the month of October I challenged myself to take a walk every day. A minimum of 30 minutes for thirty one days. I have so far only missed one day!

This evening I took a two hour long walk along the river in Umeå. It was a little windy but the sun was shining it felt lovely.

Five things I long for

Summer has just began in Umeå. I’m sitting infront of my laptop and looking true my photo archive and rediscover some of the moments when I stod there with my camera and I pressed the shutter.

And I came up with a list of five things I really long for.

  • Running in the mountains.
  • Sitting by the fire with good friends.
  • Photographing birds.
  • Thunder and lightning.
  • Taking a swim after a hot and sunny day.

Running in the mountains

Putting on my running shoes and vest fulled with water and a couple of bars. The weather doesn’t really matter.

Sitting by the fire with good friends.

The experience gets better if you do something you love with others. Right?

Photographing birds

I miss dragging my long and heavy telephoto lens and tripod out to watch and photograph birds.

Thunder and lightning.

Some are afraid of the lightning and the rumble from the sky. I can understand that! I have great respect for the force but I’m as much fascinated by it!

Taking a swim after a hot and sunny day.

Is there a better way to end a warm summer day?

Tell me, what do you long for?

Long time no seen

It’s been a couple of month since I touched my camera, at least my DSLR. Inspiration has been very low lately. I haven’t touched my camera 📷 this year. Just a few snapshots here and there with my iPhone
Some time has also pasted since I posted here in my blog.

But I’m starting to feel the drive to pick up the camera again! 😁 Here’s a photo from one of my favorite places, Tännforsen, Åre.

Hey, it’s Friday again!

Hey, it’s Friday again! Time flies away and it feels like yesterday was Monday…

As you might have seen, I’ve started to write more about my everyday life. Previous I had an another blog were I wrote about training, food, wine and my everyday life. But it became too much to handle two sites if I want some continuity. So I decided to shut down one site and write more on cjr.se.

I don’t have a complete highschool diploma and this autumn I started studied again. It has been fun so far, but it difficult when it’s over 20 years since I was a student! Today I’m studying english and preparing for the final assignments on the class. And that one of the reasons I’ve started to write in english on this website. I know I need to practice! 🙂

The photo above is photographed with the new GoPro Hero 7 Black and edited in Lightroom.

But it’s Friday and the last time I looked outside a window it was snowing. I’m looking forward to a weekend with my family, Christmas Fair and maybe some training :). 

A weekend in my hometown

I have visited my family in my hometown this weekend. Fathers day on Sunday and a photo shoot on Saturday.

On Saturday morning I trained at the local gym. I continued to work on my clean technique and I felt strong doing a 4×6 of back and front squats 🙂

The other reason I had to be back in Åsele was a family photo shoot. It’s both difficult and lot’s of fun to photograph children! The plan was to photograph both indoors and outside. But it was a gray and rainy day so we did most of the shooting indoors.
If I can get a little gear geeky I have to say that buying the Profoto B2 250 Air TTL to go kit was a really good investment! Earlier I carried a large and heavy bag on wheels, just for the flashes! Now I just have to carry two small bags. One with the flash, light modifier, a light stand and a small backpack for my camera and lenses.

I hope you had a great weekend!

Challenge myself

Finished the CrossFit beginner courses at @boxenumea yesterday. I have learned a lot about myself and my weakness that I have to work on. I’ve also realized that I can do things that I didn’t think I could do!

I’m going to continue to train for Vätternrundan, get better at running and skiing. My strength training will be at the box! It feels great to challenge myself! 😁

November is here

It’s Friday, Halloween and November. It’s raining and the sky is grey and dark. The days are getting shorter and shorter. Sunset is around 15:20 where I live. The other day it snowed in the morning and in the afternoon the snow was gone… 

If I look back this time of the year usually October to March meant a period of me being really tired and feeling down. Last year I didn’t feel as down as I just feel and this year, I’m feeling great! I’m tired but the lack of sunlight and that I training more and more might be the reason for that!?

Yesterday I noticed that it was November 1 and the first reaction was, oh it’s just a month to Christmas, time flies away! But on the other hand it’s not that long until March, April and the return of the sun!  

I’m trying to see the positive side of things! The photo above gets to symbolizing the light in the dark, it will be warmer and lighter soon! 🙂

What a lovely day!

Today started great! Woke up and went for a short morning run. Had breakfast with my lovely fiancé. The sun was shining and the air was a little crisp after the cold night when I hoped on my bike down to the city.

I photographed the photo above a couple of years ago. But it felt like proper photo to represent the good feeling I had this morning and the beautiful weather!

Challenged myself

It’s time for a personal post :).

On Tuesday evening I grabbed myself by the neck and stepped into my running shoes and went out for a run! It’s been weeks since I did that. I felt so light and easy.

A little back story

I had my tonsils partly removed in the end of June. It took about two-week for my throat to heal and I felt fine until I started to workout again. When I doing intervals or cycling or running on a step hill I almost faint, and I had. When I push myself really hard I can’t oxygenate my body. I’m having a hard time catching my breath! When I’m keeping my workout at a lower intensity it’s okay. It’s like I’m completely lost all strength and fitness that I gained over the years. 

I’ve been to the doctor and done lots of tests and at the moment there is nothing wrong with my heart or lungs. I’m waiting for an appointment for one last test. 

Back to Tuesday evening! 

What was the challenge?

Well, I did make it out for a run and second I did run with a headlamp in the dark. I have walk and run the route before but never in the dark. It might seem silly but I know the trails and roads in my hometown, Åsele, I can run them blindfolded. I haven’t live that long i Umeå so everything is new to me!

I did 5,6 km in 35 min. Nothing to brag about but I did it! 🙂
