About BKWine Photography by Per Karlsson


PHOTOGRAPHS ON WINE, VINEYARDS, GASTRONOMY, FOOD AND TRAVEL

All photos here are by me, Per Karlsson, bar a few exceptions taken by my wife (& business partner) Britt.

WINE

I travel in wine regions almost a third of my time and visit some 200 vineyards each year. It takes me to wineries all over the world: France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Austria, Greece, Croatia, Albania, Bosnia, Montenegro... to mention a few in Europe. Outside of Europe I've been to South America and South Africa (soon). We also have some pictures from Slovenia and China.

The wine photo collection includes many vineyards, wineries and winemakers. But our photo library also covers some more unusual subjects, like technical photos on winery equipment or details of vines, vineyards and soils.

GASTRONOMY & TRAVEL

Wine often goes with food, so the food and gastronomy photography is a natural extension of the wine photography. In the same way, travel photography is part of what I do. I happen to be Swedish so there are also quite a few photos from Sweden.

BOOKS & WRITING

We've written and photographed two wine books. Our articles are regularly articles on wine, food and travel published in the specialised press. We also run an online wine newsletter on wine, read all over the world: the BKWine Brief.

In other words, we know our wines, wine regions and winemakers better than most...
