Behind the Girl
Meet swedish babe @angelickpicture & see into her freelance film and digital photography life here for #faithfulltravels
Tell us about where you grew up?
I grew up in a small town on the country side called Nykvam, I loved it there. It was a happy and peaceful place with a lot of families and children.
Your favorite vacay spot in your homeland?
My favorite vacay sport is definitely our summer island, Borrholmen. There’s no place like that. Every year I long for those summer days so we can just take the boat and go out for days. There’s no place in the world I can feel this calm as when I’m out there.
We are foodies through and through – what traditional meal must we try from your home country?
Haha, that’s a hard question as i Loooove all food. But one thing you should not miss out is my mothers fish gratin, that’s my favorite of all kind.
Favorite European summer getaway?
Greece for sure.
How did you get into photography?
I can’t remember exactly where it all started but I was a little girl and for as long as I can remember I have been taking photos of almost everything.
When did you begin film 35mm photography?
Last year! And now I can’t barely live without it. The longing for the developing and the finishing result is so exciting and fun.
What camera set up would we find in your camera case?
Canon 5D mark III with my favorite lenses 24-70mm and 35mm, my golden Contax G1 with a lot of 35mm rolls. Yeah, something like that!
Best thing about being a photographer?
EVERYTHING! If that’s an answer? It feels like I have found my element in life. I get to challenge myself each day and myself as a person need that, I need to move forward, I need to grow and create things to feel satisfied and happy.
What is one piece of advise you would pass on to someone getting into photography?
Find something that’s defining you, I admire when you can see the artist through the art. It takes time but always believe in yourself and follow your hear even if someone else tells you different.
