Photographer Philip Charlie MalmqvistFile Apr 18, 7 03 18 PM

I’m a travel and lifestyle photographer from Sweden, usually on the road all over the world. My biggest joy in life is being a firsthand witness to the people and places I discover along the way. But it’s not what I expect to find there that interests me and keeps me going—it’s what I don’t expect to find.

I believe in producing colourful photos with raw beauty and natural light to show the true expression of the people I meet. The world is such an epic place in its own grace and I love to capture the situations of everyday life that I come across – from a remote village in Myanmar, to a buzzing city in Bolivia, I’m always trying to see the moment of symmetry in an otherwise chaotic universe. 

With over 50 countries in my backpack and clients from all around the world I have great experience as a visual storyteller for every kind of environment and event possible. Recently my travels have taken me to countries like Ethiopia and Guatemala where I’ve been chasing tales from its remote regions for international travel magazines such as National Geographic Traveler and Get Lost magazine.
