The Layers of Loke Roos


MBW – What moves you the most in your life? 
Loke Roos – My two sons for sure. I love being a father and a husband. I feel I get so much more out of life since I became a father. The whole world has has turned into a color painting instead of a black and grey minimalistic photograph. 

MBW – Where are you based right now and how is it shaping you? 
LR – I am based in the south of Sweden right now just outside a small town called Trelleborg. I grew up in Malmö and then lived for 10 years in Berlin, but decided to go back to Sweden after my first son was born. (image above)

MBW – In what way, if any, does your location influence your work? LR – To be really honest, not much. I feel that my working locations is all over Europe and not really the place where I sit in a dirty t-shirt in front of my computer. My work gets influenced by the people I meet and the locations I get to visit. Home is home and I don ́t want it any other way. The Layers of Loke Roos

MBW – Explain your daily routine? 
LR – Well, as most families the day starts pretty early. The whole getting-ready-for school-thing can be a mess but when I ́ve taken the boys to school I start with Coffee (my drug of choice) and usually start off working with my inbox. From there it ́s editing, deliveries, finance, shooting portraits or couples and then some more coffee. I allocate around 60min a day for social media as that is a pretty big thing for me to reach out to my clients. The Layers of Loke Roos (image above)

MBW – What is the most useful piece of advice you’ve been given?
LR –
 Always start with the good stuff at a buffet otherwise you ́ll be stuffed before you get the chance to taste it. 🙂

MBW – What do you struggle with at the moment?
LR –
 I feel right now that I am stuck between two different stages in my professional life. The hard part is I haven’t figured out what the next chapter should be about yet. (image above)

MBW – Do you remember the saddest moment of your life?
LR –
 I tend to leave the past where it belongs, in the past even if I feel that personal growth normally comes from the hard parts of life. (image above)
