Passion for light
“I always had a passion for light but I truly believe it´s when you master the shadows the magic happens.”
Hi, I'm Therese, or Tess to my friends. I'm a Swedish photographer with passion for portraits and lightning. Since a couple of years, I am a proud international ambassador for Elinchrom.
I run a studio, Ateljé Linslusen, where I work with both commercial and private clients. Besides working in the studio, I also do a lot of location shoots and travel with my “on the go-studio”. One of the best things about my job is that I get to go places I never would otherwise and that I get to meet so many great people. Perfect for a curious and sociable person like me!
I always try to keep a high technical quality in my pictures, without losing the personal feeling and playfulness. When working with clients I very much like to work as a team. The challenge of trying to create a picture that is inside the head of someone else is sometimes hard but always fun!
As for the photography I do just for me, I hope I never stop having these crazy ideas that, from time to time, end up as really great pictures. For the times they don´t, I always learn something from trying. I believe nothing is as good an education as setting out to do things you don´t know if you can manage to pull off. You learn very little new things in your comfort zone! The good pictures from these sessions often make competition pictures and I am proud to have won prices for my pictures both here I Sweden and internationally.
When I am not shooting I like it very much to teach photography and I do both lectures and workshops. For the past couple of years I have been working part time for Nikon as one of the teachers at Nikon school and I have also done some online courses for Moderskeppet. 2017 I also got the opportunity to got to Chine and do workshops in lighting for Elinchrome.
I'm married and a mother of two and live with my family in the small town Avesta. If, by chance, the day turns out to have enough hours I also like to go running, ride my horse, eat a lot of good food or have a glass of wine with my friends❤️ Books, movies and series are my yoga and if you don't find me in Avesta I'm probably out traveling the world or in our house in Kissimmee, Florida, that I consider to be my second home.
