The subject of this month's 'Behind the Shot' is a photograph which I named 'Saga' (translated: 'History'). I took this photograph during the Geldingadalir eruption in 2021 shortly after all but one crater shut down, which ended up growing into a massive mountain which is still there today. In this photograph you can see the northernmost crater in the foreground…
In this month's 'Behind the Shot' blog I want to tell the story behind one of my favourite images, called 'Skýjasnúningur'. I want to share that story because I feel it goes to show that even though you might be lucky with certain conditions and situations, you still need to act on it to make it happen.
Yesterday I attended the 2023 Federation of European Professional Photographers (FEP) Awards in Prague. I am proud to announce that I had the pleasure to receive the Silver Award (second place) in the Nature category for three of my photographs of the Fagradalsfjall eruptions in Iceland during 2021 & 2022.
Today, I am proud to say that my brand-new fine art print experience is finally available! I have always felt that selling my work as prints was an afterthought on my website. Therefore, I decided to turn the dial up to eleven and offer a new experience which is authentic & unique.
The coming week is the very last week during which you can visit my photography exhibition 'Fire and Ice' in Asse, Belgium. On Saturday November 12th I will be present at the exhibition between 14h and 18h.
I released a brand new video which is a little bit of a teaser to the exhibition which is opening the coming week. This homage to the Fagradalsfjall Fires is a collection of video footage made during the two most recent volcanic eruptions at the Fagradalsfjall volcano in Iceland.
So far 2022 has been an incredible year for my photography work. This year I managed to reach several milestones. I started my own YouTube channel, ran many successful photography workshops, got published in several magazines, won 1st place in the Abstracts category of World Landscape Photographer 2022 and more. And now I can add another accomplishment... I'm happy to share that…
As many of you undoubtedly know, last year I had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience a volcanic eruption up-close in a way that has rarely been possible. I visited the Geldingadalir eruption of the Fagradalsfjall volcanic system in Iceland over 44 times.
