A long career

Over the years I have become one of Sweden's most published authors of nature books. My book "Birdsong" is Sweden's best selling nature book ever. Nearly 2 million copies have been sold in nine languages. Totally 15 books/titles are published until now - several of them being Swedish and international bestsellers.

Now and then I'm participating in "grand" international photo-competitions and have bagged a few awards over the years, though not competing every year. In 2015 I became the overall winner in the prestigious and highly artistic Asferico contest.
Below follows a list of awards and publications.

My first book "In the Deserts of Arabia" was selected by the WWF for the
”Pandabook 2000”. The diploma was handed over by the Swedish king.
