From my second visit to Iceland in 2017, my third in total, where I had the unique opportunity to not only take part in a whale watching tour in northern Iceland but to also start and operate my drone from aboard the vessel as the pod of at least five grace- and beautiful humpback whales almost cheerfully tagged along for almost two hours. If it weren't for these photographs, I still would not believe what we saw on that day.  READ MORE
This is a celebration of and a song for one of the most mesmerizing sunsets my eyes did ever witness. MerkenMerken READ MORE
If there was a blue hour on Mars, it would look like the view over Kerlingarfjöll. Kerlingarfjöll Mountain range is a volcanic area in Iceland. I photographed it during blue hour and, luckily, the people wandering around gave it some scale MerkenMerken READ MORE
I: EMBARK We were told to not get our hopes up when embarking on the old vessel that should take us to the lands beyond. Only a few are able and capable enough to even consider the journey we had planned for years and even fewer actually crazy enough to do so. Mother, for the first time, called me a lunatic and as her hand burned my cheek red hot, I saw the tears she was holding back.  I am sorry.  As if to laugh at us, a school of humpbacks tagged alongside the vessel for a few miles. They inspected the ship very closely and we enjoyed their company for they would be the last mammals we would see on our way north. (66°21'29.9"N 23°04'28. ... READ MORE
Study about shapes and forms in Iceland. Taken partly by Drone, partly by camera. My goal was to find moments of stillness and calm and flow in the glacial landscapes and the riverbeds with their endless and ever changing linework. This piece also depicts three states that water can take: Clouds, Ice, Flowing.         READ MORE
        Video and photography assignment I've done for SIXT Car Rental in August of 2017. We drove a BMW X5 through the Italian Dolomites and the Swiss Alps on a mission to discover and drive Europe's most scenic and fun serpentine roads. All while filming, shooting and droning every step we'd take during our mountainous road trip. MUSIC: A HUMAN LIKE YOU   MerkenMerken MerkenMerken READ MORE
      The dying glacier's face is covered with a veil of white sheets. Desperately and somewhat failing to protect the age-old giant from the sun and the greenhouse-effect. Still in summer, it melts twenty feet in three weeks. Covered in dust, sand and soot of years, white turned to grey yet there is a glimpse of brightness to be found under the cover. In the next 100 years, many glaciers will disappear, never to resurface in the cradle of winter. Gone. Forever. The sheets are laid over a man made ice cave that is, hopefully, equally important to glaciology as it is to tourism. For now the glacier is tucked in ... READ MORE
The Appenzell region of Switzerland is famous for it's cheese but to photographers it bears wonders in terms of mountains, ridges, clouds and lakes. Fog gathers on the steep ridges so that it seems like a blanket for the massive chalk mountains that are characteristic for the Alpstein massif. The Saxerlücke, which is seen here, is one of the most famous examples for this occasion to occur. Watch out for the obligatory yellow dot. READ MORE
Stokksnes is a harsh but beautiful environment- really a place to experience Iceland’s true beauty. To my knowledge, it has never been droned before and as I rose up and was struck by this beautiful and totally unknown aerial view of the road that connects the mainland to a small peninsula. Even for the magic that Iceland holds in every corner, I knew these photographs were of a special kind as they carry this humbling feeling of discovery in them.   READ MORE
