Magnus is a photographer and freediver based on the Swedish west coast. From a very young age he has been fascinated about the sea. But it was not until he was 20 years old that he really started to explore it and started to take interest in marine biology. He knew pretty early during his biology studies that he was not going to work as a biologist. He decided to leave the classroom to focus on photography and conservation. The North Sea, just outside his home, is probably one of the most heavily overfished areas in the whole Atlantic. The big animals like sharks, rays and cetaceans are almost all gone. So, for the last five years he has been traveling the world to find the species that once swam there.
