Q1: You are an outdoor – and adventure photographer. Your images unite structure and lighting – with a focus on the phenomenons of nature. What came first: The fascination for nature or your photographic enthusiasm?
Back in the day I was definitely drawn to nature before my interest in photography began. Growing up in Australia I spent my childhood riding motorbikes around the backcountry around Perth, but looking back on that phase, the landscape is nearly the complete opposite of what I’m drawn totoday. Since beginning to explore the world of photography, I have taken an interest in cold climate locations and I feel as though I was born to be in the cold. I’ve never been a huge fan of the warm weather back home in Aus!
Q2: You keep enthralling your audience with impressive views of the arctic nature (e.g. ice fjords) – how do you manage to capture the characteristics of this landscape and what fascinates you about ice and snow?
To capture the finer details I often find myself scoping in with a tele lens or using my drone to find and isolate elements of the ice and Arctic landscapes. What captivates me most is the simple fact is that ice is constantly changing and with the glaciers disappearing, I feel an urgency to capture them while we still can.
