About Axel

Axel Karlsson-Lacy is a keen 11-year-old photographer, now shooting with his new Sony A7 MK III,  he joins us as the first Ted's Young Gun.

In his own words, Axel describes catching the Photography bug as follows; "I love capturing and sharing images. I think it’s in my blood. My granddad was deep into photography back in the day and my dad’s a passionate amateur photographer and videographer."

Axel's parents have always encouraged his passion, with his dad allowing him to handle and experiment with his beautiful camera equipment. Through this experimentation, Axel's skill set has continued to develop.

Axel comments on his relationship with photography further; "My mum’s Swedish and my dad’s from Melbourne - and we travel a LOT, which has given me so much inspiration and opportunity to capture images around the world and meet loads of interesting people."

At just 11, Axel is still consolidating his photographic interests, but he mentions low-light photography as an area which is currently bringing him the most joy.
