Photographer is just a word. Quit the corporate life to seek my Icelandic roots Explore the Westfjords with me on the Arctic Fox Workshop Nov 17' 👇🏻
icelandic_explorer Melrakki photography workshop. Here’s a little teaser for the photograph workshop I will host together with my friend @Joe_shutter later this fall. We’ve received a number of amazing applications for the Melrakki workshop but to make sure we create a great group of passionate individuals, we have decided to keep the application deadline open just a little bit longer. It is going to be the adventure of a lifetime as we will be spending much of our time in the remote Hornstrandir Nature reserve. Only accessible by boat, as shown in the photo, it’s a place like no other in Iceland. If you want to secure your spot to the workshop, then head over to the Melrakki site (see link in bio) and submit your application. Dates: November 14 to 19 #iceland
icelandic_explorer Thinking back, reflecting upon the summer which now has passed, one moment clearly stands out in my memory. It was the time when I was sitting at a little countryside coffeehouse, located in a traditional Icelandic turfhouse on the edge of a tiny little fjord in the Icelandic Westfjords. I’m quietly sitting enjoying a waffle with cream and a cup of coffee, served by the local elderly couple running the place, when I suddenly hear that a whale was spotted in the fjord. Quick on my feet, I sprint to set up my drone and search for the whale diving up and down in the middle of the fjord. As you can imagine, my waffle and coffee got very cold when I finally returned - but well, I think it speaks for itself that it was worth it. The Westfjords have a special place in my heart and I love the vibe of the “good old days” when places were remote and you could drive for hours without meeting anyone - while seeing incredible nature and wildlife.
icelandic_explorer Westfjords are easily one of my favorite areas in Iceland. I come here to find, peace, raw nature, unspoiled beauty, extreme contrasts and a place where exploring is still possible to the fullest. The fjords have different faces, like most of Iceland, changing drastically over the winter and summer months, but the remoteness of some of them brings it to a whole new level of off-the-beaten path experience. There is still so much to be part of over here in the Westfjords.
icelandic_explorer It took me quite a bit of time to finally encounter one of these little guys. When I finally did, it wasn't me who found him, but he found me. Interesting fact - when the first settlers arrived in Iceland, there weren't any mice - just like the sheep or horses, they arrived by boat. I guess mice also travel in style 😊#iceland
icelandic_explorer To say that photography is important to me would be an understatement. It freed me, enabled me to turn my life around, to explore those parts of me that I maybe didn't dare to listen to earlier. Photography and what I made of it helped me to fight for my dreams in so many ways. I still have loads to learn and to strive for, but this journey that I have been on over the last few years and the moments I shared with you here, dear friends, would certainly not have been possible without my camera, digital or analog 🤓🤘#greenland
