I’m an inspirational photographer and my specialty is to photograph people’s favorite places and nature around the world. As a photographer and having an incredible love for travel, yoga, meditation and and anything that heals our Bodies, Minds and Spirits, I one day realized making a beautiful nature photograph is not enough for me. Through my own struggles with my Body, Mind & Spirit, I have developed an incredible urge to share my talent, courage and experience, to document what this world has brought to me and to inspire people to live their lives happy and healthy, and to commit to believing in ourselves. I became a photographer when I got a Nikon F1 camera as a gift from my father. I started taking pictures of everything I saw, mostly nature but also people. I began my studies, graduating from the Art Institute of Boston, majoring in photography. After my studies, I started my business, Stromberg Photography, where I was doing commercial work - weddings, events and portraits. But I always came back to my work with nature. Nature reminds me where we all came from - nothing is, or has to be, perfect. It’s a place where I am allowed to use all my senses without judgements. Many times, I find what I call hidden miracles underneath the actual subjects. Sometimes they transform into characters and develop into what I call Storys in Nature. My passion for photographing nature and people in their favorite places has always stemmed from an interest and constant awareness of how we perceive ourselves and more important, how we long to be perceived in order to feel accepted. I love what I do and I’m convinced that achieving great results comes from being fearless and trusting the moment. The end result is of course about the subject but the process is about the story and my relationship to it, combining my vision with what they present in that moment.
