Tobias Hägg, Airpixels on social media is an award-winning photographer who has captured the breathtaking beauty of the world from above. He has traveled to some of the most remote and beautiful locations around the world and captured stunning aerial views that are now available as high-quality prints through our store. In this exclusive interview, we delve into the mind of the artist and learn about his passion for aerial photography and what sets his work apart.
Q: Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your background in photography?
A: I have always had a love for the natural world and capturing its beauty in a unique and creative way. My passion for photography started at a young age, and after years of practicing and experimenting, I really discovered my love for the medium through aerial photography. I was fascinated by the idea of capturing the world from above and seeing it from a unique perspective and in a new light. I have been very fortunate to call myself a professional photographer for over a decade now and have traveled to some of the most stunning places on earth to try to capture it's beauty.
Q: What sets your work apart from other aerial photographers?
A: I Honestly don't think so much about how or why my work sets apart so much from others. I try to focus on what I enjoy or get caught up in. I think my work is different because of my focus on capturing the essence of a moment thats special to me, rather than just capturing a pretty picture. I try to tell a story with my images, showcasing the beauty and complexity of the world from a unique perspective. I also have a keen eye for composition, color, and light, which helps to bring out the beauty of the moments I capture.
Q: Can you tell us about your favourite project and why it is special to you?
A: It's hard to pick favourites considering the amount of beauty i've been able to experience over the years. But a recent project and destination that i really enjoyed and as you can see a lot of as prints was trying to capture the beauty of the remote deserts in Utah. This was a challenging project because of the remote location, but it was also incredibly rewarding. The stunning landscapes and unique rock formations in the area were unlike anything I had seen before, and capturing their beauty from above was a truly awe-inspiring experience.
Q: What is your process for capturing the perfect shot from above?
A: For me the perfect shot doesn't exist. I think that is also the beauty of it all. Accepting that nothing will ever be perfect but you can always desire to come close to it. When it comes to my process it begins with research and planning. I carefully choose my location and the best time of day to capture the light and the beauty of the environment i will explore. Once I am in the air, I focus on composition, color, and light to create a unique and captivating image based on the moments I find myself in. I also work closely with my pilot to ensure that we are in the right position to capture the shot that I envision from above.
Q: What do you hope people take away from viewing your Art?
A: I hope that people will be inspired by the beauty of the world from above and feel connected to the moments captured. Hopefully they will enjoy to see the see the world in a new light just like me. I also hope that my prints will encourage people to appreciate the beauty of nature and to take care of our planet, we only have one and it's gonna have to last for future generations.
