PHOTOGRAPHS ON WINE, VINEYARDS, GASTRONOMY, FOOD AND TRAVEL
All photos on BKWine Photography are by me, Per Karlsson, bar a few exceptions taken by my wife (& business partner) Britt.
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 first book was on the wines and the vineyards in the Languedoc region. Our second book was on vine growing and wine making.
We publish perhaps 30 article per year on wine, food and travel, mostly 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...

We love wine, food and travel which is the reason we do what we do.
