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 some 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 often as I can.
I've been a member of 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 for the Society.
In 2016 I took on a 365 challenge for the second time via Instagram and I that time ended up succeeding (unlike in 2014). All those 366 pictures are now in a Flickr gallery if you want to see A LOT of pictures! In 2018 I did it again, because it was fun to have a long lasting project like that. The third time made for a additional challenges not to shoot the same things all over again!
In a moment of potential stupidity on New Year’s Eve I decided that I wasn’t quite done with 365 projects, so in 2019 I am going to keep on doing my daily picture. However, I am not going to be as strict with what I upload as the daily picture, because there may be an analog film scan here and there among all the cell phone snapshots. My challenge, my rules…and I’m tweaking them a bit this year.
In parallel with my 4th 365 project I'm continuing to explore the world of film 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.
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!
