To celebrate the one year anniversary of the eruption in Meradalir, the second eruption of the Fagradalsfjall volcano, I decided to create a timeline showing all the events which happened during this eruption just as I did for the Geldingadalir eruption.
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.
Another year has (almost) passed. That means it's the perfect time to publish a list of my most noteworthy photographic moments of the year. It's the perfect way for me to reflect on the special moments and achievements in my photography career and look back with pride.
Now that the dust has settled, I wanted to say "Thank you!" to each and everyone who visited my photography exhibition 'Fire and Ice', bought one of the photographs or sent me encouraging messages. I am very grateful for the tons of support my work has gotten.
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.
