Lars was born and raised in Kumla, Sweden.
After graduating from Alleskolan Hotel and Restaurant program in Hallsberg, Sweden, he moved to London, England, where he worked as a Comis Chef at Bistro Soho.
Lars fulfilled Sweden’s mandatory military service in 1997/98. He was stationed in Norrtälje at LV3 (Luftvärn), a ground-to-air-defence military base.
He moved to Canada later in 1998 to be closer to his partner Tina, whom he met in England. They married in 1999 and now have a son and a daughter, Oskar and Freja.
After more than eight years as a chef, Lars retired the knife to pursue photography – with a leap of faith, he went back to school and earned his diploma in photojournalism at Loyalist.
