About Me

It all started when Joakim had his first dive experience with a manta ray in Thailand, ” It was one of, if not the best experience I ever had, 45 lovely minutes with these gentle giants”, said Joakim. That 45 minute dive completely changed Joakim’s life and relationship to the ocean.

Today Joakim is one of the most contracted and respected photographers/ filmers/ underwater filmmakers in Sweden. His devotion to nature both on land and in the sea has reached beyond Swedish borders. He’s also frequently booked for lecturers both in Sweden and internationally.

Joakim Odelberg also works as a very popular host for a Swedish TV SVT’s Mitt i naturen “Surrounded By Nature”. He also worked with foundations and companies such as:
WWF Sweden, Baltic Sea 2020, TV4, SVT, Fundamentfilm, Folke Rydén Production, Keep Sweden Tidy Foundation, Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management, Nordic Council among others.

"I’ve been working exclusively with LUMIX cameras since 2013. The accuracy and weight are extremely important to me. When I am out in the field I don’t want to have to carry heavy equipment. I am out in the wild for several days in a row so I need to be able to trust my equipment. There’s nowhere to fix or change a camera in the wild. I work in extreme conditions so the camera has to take the be able to take some beating, heat, cold, damp, dust, rain, snow…"
