Johnny Haglund was 14 when he fell in love with photography. He spent a lot of time in the woods and wanted to capture with images what he saw in nature. The mentality of a documentary photographer was present from the beginning.
Thinking it wasn’t possible to make a living as a photographer, Johnny became an engineer. An engineer, who kept taking photos. Only when his images started winning prizes did he realize that perhaps it could also be a profession.
He knew it would require a lot of hard work to become a professional photographer, but realising a dream was worth the effort. He started looking up places, people and adventures that other photographers might found too difficult, too uncomfortable or just too time-consuming to reach.
