My name is Erik Johansson, I’m a full time photographer and retoucher from Sweden based in Berlin, Germany. I work on both personal- and commissioned projects and sometimes I create street illusions. I don’t capture moments, I capture ideas. To me photography is just a way to collect material to realize the ideas in my mind. I get inspired by things around me in my daily life and all kinds of things I see. Although one photo can consist hundreds of layers I always want it to look like it could have been captured. Every new project is a new challenge and my goal is to realize it as realistic as possible. For more information about me please check the FAQ/Biography or my TED talk.
Equipment: Hasselblad H5D-40, Hasselblad HCD 35-90, Adobe Photoshop CC
I am as much a photographer as a retoucher which enables me to create almost anything that you can imagine. Having an understanding of each step of the process from sketch to final image gives me total control of the whole work flow. I am available for worldwide commissioned projects. If you have a project in mind feel free to contact me.
