At the age of eight, Oscar Mattsson was given a Polaroid camera as a present from his parents. He fell in love with it immediately and photographed everyone and everything until the film was finished.
The film in Oscar’s camera is now endless and he continues to take pictures with the same enthusiasm and passion.
Passion for photography, varied experience and limitless creative energy, are reason’s for Oscar Mattsson reputation as a well respected and sought after photographer.
Oscar works on assignments across the globe and has featured in a number of award winning advertising campaigns. Receiving the prestigious title of ”Hasselblad Master” in 2006, Oscar was recognised for ‘his capacity to combine photographic perfection, human nature and exciting composition’.
Oscar’s studio is based in Gothenburg, though years of experience in the business have provided him with the opportunity to build a broad network of contacts, both in Sweden and abroad.
“When working on a project or campaign I aim to strike the balance between filling the project brief and bringing something original to the finished product. I enjoy the interaction with the clients and value the importance of working together and ensuring customer satisfaction.’
‘A good dialogue is key to understanding and achieving what needs to be portrayed in a picture. I receive great satisfaction from all aspects of the photographic process and though I pride myself on having a sound understanding of this, there is always more to learn.
I am regularly reminded of why I am a photographer; I love taking pictures. Every day.'
Oscar was born 1971 and began his professional career in 1997
