About Håkan Dahlström

Information about the owner of this website, Håkan Dahlström.
Håkan Dahlström, Malmö


I am Håkan Dahlström, a photographer living in Malmö, Sweden. This photoblog is my primary portfolio where I showcase a wide array of my photographs, with the majority from my world in picturesque southern Sweden. I love to travel and sometimes write travel reports. I also love food from around the world. Some would say kebab and I can’t disagree.


Today I specialize in photographing the environment as it appears naturally all around me. I work to capture my images in a compelling way — to make them significantly more interesting and inspiring than they appear through the naked eye. I strive to transform a common moment into an extraordinary moment as well as to freeze the extraordinary moments, all to evoke a range of feelings in me and in you.


Håkan Dahlström has been working as a photographer since the mid 1980′s, shooting across most disciplines over time. Starting with news and sports photography and moving into my present style, I have published over 20,000 photographs. All of these photographs are available for licensing — from hanging them on your wall to publishing them in your book, and every medium in between. Please contact me for further information.

Using these tools will make your viewing more enjoyable.

I have been published in several publications.
