Hi Vera, tell us a bit about yourself?
I'm a half Swedish, half Finnish surfer/photographer/animal lover who since about two years have been living in Sri Lanka. I came here after I left my job back in Stockholm just to get a break before getting a new one but then I fell in love, found a dog and now 2 years later I am still here living my dream life with my partner, 6 dogs and a cat. Photography has always been a hobby and I used to tell myself that I'm gonna be a photographer in my next life, and when I moved here to Sri Lanka I kind of realised that this was my next life or at least a new chapter where I had the opportunity to try something new. So I followed my dream to make photography my job and I'm so happy I had the courage to do it. I love to shoot people so I mostly do lifestyle and portrait photography but I also just got a water housing so I started shooting surf as well. Since I've been surfing for the past 10 years and surfing is a big part of my life its so fun to try to capture the joy of surfing as well as the beauty of the ocean. When I don't take pictures or surf I dedicate a lot of my time to helping the street dogs here in Sri Lanka.
