Who is Anders?

I have been interested in the marine animals and plant life for as long as I can remember. My first aquarium I got at the age of six was the first of many that I have had over the years. At the age of 12 I joined Skövde's Sport diver club and my interest for diving and life under the waters surface got stronger and stronger. A career as a marine biologist was pretty obvious, even as a young teenager.

During my biology studies at Gothenburg University, I would take pauses to focus on my diving and worked as an instructor both the Sweden and in tropical waters. After my studies were finished, I taught courses about Sweden's marine fauna at Tjärnös marine biology labratory. After several years of working with different labratories, I finally found my dream job in Lysekil on Sweden's west coast - a full time job teaching marine biology and diving at Gullmarsgymnasiet (high school).

Curiosity & competitions

My curiosity about our marine life has led me into photography as a way of spreading knowledge about this fantastic environment that we have. In my opinion, this is the best way to keep it safe. Through the years I have won both the Swedish and Nordic underwater photo championships, and have represented Sweden at the world championships.


I have been a proud member of Naturfotograferna since 2006. I am best known for my photos from here in the Nordic waters. After so many years of photography in Swedish waters, I now have the largest photo archive of Nordic marine animals. After several trips and work experiences abroad, I also have a great collection of pictures of water-based organisms from other areas of the world. Check out my website if you would like to see some of my photos, or would like to know more about myself:
