2021 – Special guest of the Festival – Andreas Hemb

I’m a Wildlife Photographer from Sweden.  Doing photography for many years, it evolved into a profession during 2017 when starting up Moments of Magic. Through Moments of Magic I provide specialized photo tours purely focused on getting the best possible photo opportunities, as well as holding lectures and selling fine art prints.  Since 2019 I have had the fortune to be a Sony Europe Imaging Ambassador. 


Going through many styles I’ve been drawn more and more into wildlife and bird photography. To slowly become one with nature so that you can share and observe the subjects life without disturbing them is a wonderful feeling. I get rewarded with so much more than just the images I take with me!

An image can contain so much more than just a reflection of our surroundings. I strive to get passed the documentary aspect of photography, an image should provide feelings!

In my images I hope to be able to project the beauty of the nature that surrounds us and the living friends we share our world with. To get the observer to become one with the seen and get them to share the feeling I felt while experiencing these moments of magic in person.

This is what categorize a truly successful image!
