My deep desire for landscape photography began after viewing images from one of the greatest landscape photographers Art Wolfe. Seeing how Art was able to compose his pictures, turned my view of photography into a lifetime passion. I attended Art Wolfe’s workshop in the Rocky Mountains of Wyoming and was taught how to view nature and compose a picture making it interesting and from a prospective that one might not be used to seeing.
During my travels in the United States, Africa and Iceland, I’ve been exposed to some of the earths most beautiful scenery where I studied and honed my photographic techniques.
Iceland is my favorite place to photograph, almost everywhere you look you can compose and capture a interesting and beautiful picture. The country side offers the most varied picture composition, from the black lava beaches to the rolling green farm land to the glacier capped volcano’s to the glacial (ice) lagoon.
