  • I have always been inspired by landscape and Iceland is a landscape like no other, often feeling like another planet. Visiting annually, I aim to capture the vast harsh landscape of Iceland, coupled with immense beauty. I never imagined I would have the opportunity to see an erupting volcano, but Iceland delivered once again with once of the most incredible sights I have ever seen. I was fortunate enough for the eruption to last for several months, and I was able to fly over in a helicopter to take photos since the landscape was covered in lava and hiking close was no longer an option. The destruction of the lava, but the simultaneous creation of new land was a surreal sight.
