Director of Photography, Erik Vallsten is an expert in light and can portray the perfect atmosphere through the lens. With his experience from documentaries, he has an incredible ability to capture the feeling of intimacy and closeness and manages to create a trust between camera and object; he finds the story through the lens. Erik sets his touch on the projects he is involved in, and through close collaboration with the director, he is always open to constantly adapting to the creative vision requested.
Vallsten found his interest in filmmaking as a 10-year-old when he saw a documentary by Gunnar Källström, a recognized documentary filmmaker who later became his supervisor and mentor during his studies in Cinematography at Dramatiska Institutet (now Stockholm University of the Arts) in Stockholm. Since graduating in 2006, he has shot a variety of documentaries as well as drama.
