Born 1963 at Thingeyri in the WestFjords, Iceland. I am a self-taught photographer.
Photographing allows me to connect to nature and recharge my inner battery. I look for areas and images where I can express power and dramatic nature. But I also look for the mild conditions and then I might use long exposure
From the work of Ansel Adams, Brassai, Michael Levin, Michael Kenna, and the Icelandic photographer RAX (Ragnar Axelsson) and I guess many others. There is something different in them all. Ansel Adams developing skil , Brassai for his dark and moody images. Michael Kenna uses the square format exceptionally well. Michael Levin has a fantastic technical skill for long exposure images. And closer to home, RAX, gives me the inspiration to photograph northern life.“
