Nature

Fatima Boukarchid

Nature has always been a part of my life. I was born and raised in a small village in the northern parts of Sweden. At a young age, I followed my parents and grandparents fishing and picking berries in the forest. The forest was always a magical and exciting place for me. It was a place where it was possible to spot animals like the moose, capercaillies, and black grouses.

I live in Stockholm since 2008, where I moved after receiving a Master of Science degree in Engineering from University. I started photographing 2014 when I realized how it allowed you to discover all the wonders of nature and how incredibly fun it is. Today I spend time my time photographing in Stockholm, but also in northern Sweden, where I love to portray the wildlife of the forests and the mountains.

My pictures often depict birds and other animals. I enjoy trying to include some part of the animal’s personality in my images. A goal with my photography is to inspire others to experience nature and also to spread the understanding of the importance of taking care of it.

My pictures have been published in the magazine Sveriges Natur (Issue 3, 2019), in the book Upplever i Stockholms Natur (2018), and I have also participated several times as a jury member of Fotosidan Masters photo competition and in the nature photo exhibition Royal National City Park 25 years (2020, Stockholm), and others.

Most of my images are taken using Canon equipment. My favorites in the kit are my Canon 5d Mark iv camera, and Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS II USM and Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lenses.
