My name is Tomas Nilsson and I am a photographer from the south of Sweden, born in the early seventies often seen out and about with at least one of camera within grasping distance.
While I don't earn a living from photography, it is something near and dear to my heart and that I enjoy as much as I can!
In the last few years I’ve come to enjoy 365 challenges, starting in 2014. I didn’t succeed that year, but decided to have another go in 2016. That year I did succeed, and those 366 pictures are now in a Flickr gallery if you want to see A LOT of pictures! After a year’s hiatus I did another successful run in 2018, because it was fun to have a long lasting project like that with an added challenge not shoot the same things all over again! And, In a moment of potential stupidity on New Year’s Eve I decided that I wasn’t done with 365 projects. During 2019 I am doing it again! This year I am not as strict with what I upload as my daily picture; there are analog film scans and DSLR shots among all the cell phone pictures that I used to restrict myself to. My challenge, my rules I say!
In parallel with my 4th 365 project I'm continuing to explore the world of analog photography. I caught the bug in 2016 and I find it so interesting to learn this very tactile process! As of October 2018 the photos on this site are to a vast degree analog images that I’ve developed myself in my photo club’s darkroom. I've been a member of that club (Fotografiska Föreningen i Malmö (The Malmö Photographic Society)) since January 2006 and as of 2011 I am on the board as as one of the web admins.
When not out taking photos I enjoy good books, both reading as well as creating them. Taking part in National Novel Writing Month (http://www.nanowrimo.org) for the last ten (!) years has been a blast and rekindled my love of writing as well as gained me a great group of friends!
