Nilla’s intrigue with photography started at a young age with a 110mm film camera. The images that resulted from this tiny box, created an addiction and passion. Working in an Old Time studio, shooting portraits on an old Hasselblad flatbed camera, saw Nilla photographing individuals and groups of up to 20 and more in period costume. This experience taught Nilla a symbiotic relationship with people and the camera.
With a lust to travel, Nilla donned her first backpack at an early age and spent a year backpacking around the world, which cemented her passion for photography and travel. Striving to experience and capture a great part of the world for all to enjoy, Nilla hopes her images inspire people to venture further than the security of their own home!
“As a travel photographer, capturing the essence of a candid moment is my passion and strive for images that etch in people’s minds.”
