I am a photographer specializing in extreme metal and horror. My home is Malmö, Sweden, but I am a frequent visitor of Copenhagen's rotten death metal scene as well as events around Europe.
I've always enjoyed photography, art, the obscure layers of society, and last but not least - extreme metal. It therefore came natural for me to start shooting concerts and festivals (mainly those associated to death/black/thrash/grind). I'm also a horror novel devotee, and have been fostered by the works of Edgar Allan Poe, William Hope Hodgson, Howard Phillips Lovecraft, Sheridan Le Fanu, and many more, which I incorporate into my photography. Apart from this, nature is one of my greatest refuges and thus tend to end up in my photos as well.
I am inspired by creative individuals that I meet, biological curiosities, Ambroise Bierce, Edgar Allan Poe, and of course death/black/thrash metal. Common "beauty" does not interest me.
I also write about music, previously for Avantgarde-metal.com but nowadays mainly Slavestate.se.
All live shots are licensed under CC BY-NC-ND, i.e. you can share my concert photos non-commercially as long as you credit Septikphoto and don't make any changes in the photo.
