Living in Helsingborg in the south of Sweden. Enjoys photography, design, music, movies, travel and a lot more. Former sports photographer, pictures from that period are visible in my photostream, and I now work as an IT-professional. My main purpose of using the Flickr services is to make an independent backup of all my digital photos. After doing so I found out what an excellent way this is to share my photos to a wider audience. In my opinion this is by far the best photo service on the planet. Thank you Flickr.

    "Håkan är en synnerligen kompetent fotograf som jag haft privilegiet att lära känna lite mer än via hans publika bilder. Jättesvårt att skriva ett omdöme utan att det blir klichéartat och allmänt ytligt. Det jag gillar med Håkans fotograferande är det okomplicerade sättet bilderna blir till. Håkans sätt att dokumentera vardagliga företeelser så som en promenad med hunden, en utflykt till den lokala parken, mm, visar hans brillianta förmåga att med kameran göra bildlyrik av vardagsprosa. En annan egenskap jag uppskattar mycket hos denne unge Skånske fotograf är hans ödmjukhet och vilja att hjälpa de av oss som efterfrågar hans expertis. Han är en sann ambassadör för fotokonsten och det är en stor glädje och ett privilegium för mig att ha Håkan i min vänskapskrets."

    "Håkan Dahlström is a higly creative Swedish photographer. I value his photos, his photo stream on Flickr and his personal qualities. Håkan is a photographer that can make objects that some of us find mundane, look magnificent.

    He does that with a click on his camera, the right angle, and with perfect camera settings at exactly the right time. Not many photographers can do that, and that is what makes the photos from Håkan so special. Håkan is also proof that you don't need to travel the world around to get the best photos. His photos are mostly take just around the corner from where he live.

    If you want to feast your eyes on some magnificent and delicious photos, take a look at Håkans photo stream. It will inspire you to try and do the same. I know they have inspired me :)"

    "My good friend Håkan is a great inspiration to me. He is a skilled photographer with an eye for form and shape. His photos show what a creative and artistic guy he is. Håkan also happens to be a bit of my mentor advising me on things like photographing techniques, post processing, photo gear and workflow. For this I'm very grateful and I consider myself lucky having such a professional as my friend. Håkan is an active commenter here on Flickr which helps me and other people becoming a better photographer. Thank you!"

    "Håkan is an excellent photographer and an active flickr:ite. He's an admin of my favorite group and does a great job taking care of the group. With a firm hand he guides us but still sees to it that there is room for discussion. His pictures are great and are often experimental. Håkan likes to experiment with light, angles, HDR and small details. He has a nice mix of experimental pictures and documentary pictures wich makes his photostream a joy to browse through."
