Hello! My name is Jeroen.

My name is Jeroen. I am a Belgian, award-winning, nature photographer and guide who specialises in photographing wildlife and landscapes with great passion. I have been living in Reykjavík, Iceland, for several years, using it as my base to explore and capture the raw beauty of the land of fire and ice and the Arctic region in its entirety.

My Story

I found my passion for photography very early on when I found an analog Canon SLR in my parent’s attic at the age of 10. Learning how to use it, caused me to be immediately fascinated by photography. Being fortunate enough to travel with my parents to distant countries in my childhood, it developed my respect and admiration for nature tremendously. Years later, after discovering the raw and unspoilt beauty of the Icelandic nature, it reinvigorated my passion for nature photography.

I kept travelling to Iceland in search of the next captivating moment I could capture with my camera. After several years, I decided I had enough of travelling back and forth several times every year and started preparing the next chapter in my life: migrating to Iceland. I sold all my belongings, jumped into a plane with a few suitcases and started a new life in Iceland. There I continued to explore the many hidden corners and secrets the island has to offer.

What Gear Do I Use?

At this time, I use the following camera equipment to create my shots:

  • DJI Air 2S

  • Canon EOS R6

  • Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III

  • Canon RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS USM

  • An assortment of drop-in filters

I have also previously owned a DJI Mavic 2 Pro, Canon AV-1 (analog), Canon EOS 550D, Canon 6D, Canon 5D Mark IV and a Canon EOS R as well as following assortment of lenses:

  • Canon EF 50mm F/1.8 STM
