Q: Hello and welcome to the PxlEyes community. Please tell us who Mikael Sundberg is.
A: I was born deaf and have a passion for photography. I have three different projects going on right now: photographing the starry sky, extreme close-up images and 360 degrees photographing, which you can all see on my website. I Live in Orebro, Sweden with my spouse Melody. She is also interested in photography, so we often shoot together. I work with European Sign Language Center which is a lexicon for sign language in different countries. I also freelance as photographer. I have photographed many Swedish celebrities, such as the royal family and I have also photographed for a few books.
Vintergatan “Vintergatan”

Q: Your website splits between several categories, from animals to architecture and models. Which is, in fact, your favourite subject to photograph?
A: I am a photographer that likes to photograph as many different motives as possible. Sometimes I’m more focused on photographing landscapes and another times I’m more focused on photographing wild animals. So I don’t really follow a strict “genre”, I just photograph what want for the moment.

Q: Do you have a favourite photographer or anyone else who inspires you with your work?
A: My inspiration consists of all the creative people that are out there on the internet and in magazines/books/prints and movies. Even pictures that are not technologically perfect can give inspiration because it can be a new idea. I don’t want to imitate other photographers, I want to be creative and produce my own pictures. It’s important to follow your own way and find your own passion and style.

Q: Which is the most important part in a photo to you: composition, light or subject?
A: Light is most important. If the light is bad, the picture will not be ok, even if the composition or the message in the picture is good.
Trädet “Trädet”

Q: Which is the very first advice that you would give to a photographer just starting out in this field of art?
A: Don’t focuse only on the techniques, just go outside and photograph instead, and you’ll learn very much! Learn the technique later. It’s not a good, expencive camera and lenses that will make you a good photographer, it is your own creativity and perspective that counts.

    They are all good, Mikael Sundberg is an excellent photographer. “Beskrivning” is very beautiful and serene. “Old power” is also one of my favorites, I like windmills and there is a nostalgia about this one. I noticed “Lada” next to it and that rickety shack in a winter landscape suggests warmth and focuses on it, it is a superd take. This photographer has so many other good pictures that it is difficult to pick and choose as it is the case when people have talent. Exxcellent interview Giulia. :))
