johansson is based in berlin, germany. he picked up his interest for retouching while studying computer engineering. he is as much a photographer as a retoucher which enables him to create almost anything that you can imagine. having an understanding of each step of the process gives him total control of the whole work process from sketch to final image to ensure a high quality realistic result. stock photos don’t really work for him, as he wants to have almost the same perspective in every of his images, a similar light atmosphere. that is why he shoots them all on purpose. often he combines more than two photos together.
