Since childhood, I have always had a camera close by, according to my father. Later, my mom and dad reminded me about how I use to crawl around capturing the first and last sunrays of the day. Why was I on the ground?... I was told early on that photos have to have foreground, middle ground and background (not entirely true... I know now, but back then I believed it). I just thought that everyone took photos like that. Compositions meant everything to me. The capture HAD to tell a story, EVERY time the shutter went off.
Life is good. My wife has always been supportive of my photography obsession and it's a lot safer than my first choices of free diving or rock climbing. My two daughters often laugh and tease me when I wonder off alone in a foreign country because I found some interesting bird sitting on a rock in the sand as the sun sets in the distance.
Colors, sunrays, shadows, reflections from water....make me happy, like a kid in a candy store! The beginning and the end of the day are my favorite since everything changes then. Magic comes out when the rays are the longest and by nature.....always golden... impossible to not love those moments.
My photos are intended to mimic the feeling that I have when the shutter captured the magic. A photo is suppose to be (to me) like how it is remembered from a dream....gorgeous and magical. I spend a fair amount on editing afterwards to get the magical feeling right. Welcome to my magical eye candy store,,, Dreamscape Collection by Mike Nilsson. Enjoy the visit, stay as long as you feel like it! ;-) Cheers!

Impossible to sum up here. See the finished product in your mind and do not settle for anything else.
My favorite photo was redone 7 times before I finally got it like it was intended. Between the first try and the last was 4 years.
Getting married, a degree and being a father. I love my wife and daughters. You are all amazing!
