WHO I AM

 

 

I'M SIMON HOLMGREN.

GREW UP IN NYKOPING, SWEDEN. BUT NOW I LIVE IN STOCKHOLM.

I BOUGHT MY FIRST CAMERA WHEN I WAS AROUND 11 YEARS.

HAD NO SPECIAL INTEREST AND THE CAMERA LOCKS ON THE SHELF.

A FEW YEARS LATER, MY FATHER BOUGHT A NIKON D3100 AND A 70-300 LENS TO ITSELF.

TO BE HONEST IT WAS MOSTLY ME WHO USED THE CAMERA.

I PHOTOGRAPHED EVERYTHING AS AN AMATEUR USUALLY DO, BUT ESSENTIALLY I PHOTOGRAPHED MOTORSPORTS AND FLOORBALL.

FLOORBALL IS OFTEN PLAYED IN SPORTS HALLS WITH POOR LIGHTING WHICH MADE A LENS WITH AN F / 4 DID NOT WORK SO I DECIDED TO WORK OUT MONEY FOR A NEW,

NIKON 70-200 F / 2.8, IS PROBABLY THE BEST PURCHASE I'VE MADE IN MY LIFE. THE FOLLOWING YEAR I EVEN BOUGHT MY FIRST VERY OWN SLR, A NIKON D610, A FULL-FRAME CAMERA.

THERE HAS OBVIOUSLY BEEN A LOT OF GOOD STUFF FOR BUT THESE ARE THE MOST MEMORABLE.

HERE I AM NOW 20 AND STILL LOVES TO PHOTOGRAPH..
