Life in Focus: Mattias Fredriksson


It is a special time of the year when changing seasons challenge shooters beyond their subjects and equipment. Some move with the weather, chasing dirt and snow, while others stay put and bounce back and forth as the sceneries change. Mattias Frederiksson takes the latter, working through the transition and keeping his cameras working as the conditions go from dirt to snow and back again. We catch up with Mattias in this past November in Åre, Sweden where he shows us how he manages to shoot both mountain bike and ski in the consecutive days.

Over the last year alone, his images have found their way on nearly 30 mag covers. As we are about reach another seasonal transition, it begs the question, what's the secret to his success? Click play to find out.

Life in Focus takes us behind the scenes with our Staff Pro Team to capture them in their element, and to show the world their story of how they became the pro's they are. The series will present a different f-stop Staff Pro in each episode exploring their world along with the techniques and skills that distinguish them from the rest.
 
Our collaborative effort with the team is an essential cog in the f-stop product development process. Working with industry leading professionals to design and build the ultimate camera packs and bags is an ongoing endeavor that has helped us to become the brand and company that we are today.
