Knut Koivisto works in Stockholm and is one of Sweden’s most respected portrait photographers. In the beginning of 1997 he started his own studio concentrating on corporate portraits and as a still photographer on Swedish major movies and television dramas. Knut Koivisto’s no-nonsense portraits of Sweden’s glitterati and top magnates cut through egos, forced poses and projected personalities, right to the very heart and soul of a person. To put the person at the center and capturing a sense of reality is central to the way Knut works.
Knut teaches at Fotografiska Akademin, where he leads popular workshops in portrait photography. He has also lectured and held classes abroad, including Norway, Denmark, Germany and Japan. The switch to digital photography and the possibility with the emerging social medias has also become a great interest for Knut Koivisto. And in addition to regular workshops in portrait photo he also holds workshops in mobile photography.
