My name is Nadja Sjöström and I'm a photographer based in Stockholm.
I've always been taking photos and enjoyed the art form ever since I started out in the darkroom back in 2004 when I was still in highschool. I've been working mostly with theatre and opera since then, as an agent for actors and as an actor myself. For some reason I never thought I would end up as a photographer but life has a funny way of making its own decisions. I've graduated from The Photoschool of Stockholm where I studied photography and visual communication.
But let's talk about the reason why I do what I do.
In 2009 I started working as an actor at The Royal Opera House here in Stockholm. I evolved a passionate love for the art form and came to appreciate all the beautiful photos taken from the shows. That led me to the legendary photographer Mats Bäcker whom now is my dear friend and mentor. I'm grateful for everything he passes on to me and I've grown as a photographer in a short period of time. Thanks to him I have the great benefit of taking exactly those photos that are the reason why I first started with photography.
I have the greatest job one can have!
