Wanna Become a Better Photographer?

Welcome to Photography Playground!

I’m so glad you’re here.

I wanna help you take better pics with whatever gear you have. Because it’s not about having a fancy camera, it’s about the person behind the camera.

Hey, that’s you!

Photography Playground is a place where you learn the nuts and bolts of photography but that’s just the beginning of the journey.

In everything I write and teach you’ll discover a strong focus on the creative process and developing your own view of the world.

This is not a place where you’ll find tricks and gimmicks for overnight photography success.

We’re gonna build you a solid photography house. When you have strong skills and creative vision you don’t need tricks and gimmicks.

Meet Karin

Do you know the story of Pippi Longstocking? I read her adventures to pieces when I was a little girl. Redheaded and freckled just like her. Both having seafaring fathers. Hers as a pirate, mine more legit. My dad and my mom actually created me while they were crossing the Atlantic Ocean. Infusing me with a forever wandering soul. By the time I was a mom myself it was my favorite book to read to my daughter.

Pippi’s playful, curious and free spirit evoked a sense of limitless possibilities in me. There’re no barriers but your own. I treasure the Pippi in me. She’s always looking for new adventures and challenges. Forever questioning the status quo. When I listen to her I feel alive and in sync with who I am. Life, the universe or whatever you wanna call it treats me with unexpected gifts.

This Beautiful Craft

It was the Pippi in me who started to jump up and down when I entered the darkroom of my Art school for the very first time. I was enchanted by the dark space flooded with red lights and the reservoirs filled with mysterious fluids lined up together. Mesmerized by the floating pieces of paper slowly giving away their image.

It was then and there that my lifelong passion for photography was born.

That was more than 30 years ago and my passion for this beautiful craft has not left my side for a minute. It’s an honor for me to be in the position to share my love for photography with you and to help you to become the best photographer you can be.

Your Next Steps!

Your Pippi Story

We all have a Pippi inside us. She’s baked into our DNA. We can call it creativity or imagination. You might call it your inner rebel or your adventurous spirit. It could be your need for freedom or your wandering soul. It’s basically the same. It’s all Pippi.

Tell me, how’s your Pippi doing? Do you know her inside and out? Is she a quiet and distant voice? Have you forgotten all about her? Maybe you feel her presence in the background and you’d love to know how to make her shine?

Since you somehow landed on this page and made it this far I’m assuming you love photography. I believe your soul craves a creative outlet! If that’s true you’ve come to the right place! So what you’re waiting for?

A Solid House

Let’s built you a solid photography house! Becoming a better photographer at Photography Playground is not just getting the technical nuts & bolts in place. We will be zeroing in on developing your unique view (oh yeah baby, you have one!) from the get-go. 

Photography is not an exact science. As with any creative endeavor, there is something intangible about it. The technical, scientific part has no purpose in itself, it’s a means to an end.

And the end goal here at Photography Playground is for you to learn how to express yourself through photography. The main thing the technique needs to do is to support and underline your unique visual story. It is there to serve YOU.

I love questions so fire away!
