About me

My name is Mattias Åström and photography is something that is in the family. My grandparents photographed and my grandmother worked as a retoucher in the good old days when an image was a real printed photo and not a digital file. My dad photographed and developed photos in a darkroom so it isn't  so strange that I love photography?


I have no college education in photography but have read very many books in the subject and are self taught. For almost seven years, I ran a ma-foto as a company, but since March 2016 I have chosen to close down the company and NOT offer any photographic services for payment. The reason is simple. I would much rather photograph what I personally like and not what gives money. But now I start to sell photos again and maby start a company.


Actually, I'm moving in four main areas. Animals and nature, people, nude photography and concert photography. For me, it is about capturing what I think is beautiful and important to document and communicate to the viewer. When it comes to the people I photograph, it is important for me that it is a real person behind, with thoughts and ideas and a personal story. So I am not interested in only highlighting "models".
