Living Amongst Inuit Hunters, Uummannaq, Greenland

Uummannaq, Greenland

We all look for something special when we travel. An experience that no one else has had, something we can hold close to our heart for the rest of our lives. The crack of the whip erases my train of thought and I realize where I am. Gliding across the Arctic ocean of ice with my troop of dogs and Inuit hunter friends. Every so often we pass by bright blue glaciers the size of skyscrapers and mountains reminiscing a fairy tale scene. Being this remote, so far from the civilized world in a place that most will never even know exists is the kind of destination I have always dreamt of. This is travel, in its purest most special form. It’s a transformative experience that you will leave from as a new person. Welcome to Uummannaq, Greenland, the last true adventure!

Fire and Ice – Travel Iceland’s South Coast

South Iceland

The road is long and as the hours drift by, my mind tries to comprehend the amazing journey i am on. Black sand beaches, colourful quaint villages, epic mountains dotted with volcanoes, lagoons filled with icebergs, and hills with dive bombing puffins. These are all things you will see along Iceland’s Southern road. Iceland’s Southern route is a traveller’s dream ticking off all the must see in this small but diverse region. At many of the pit stops I quickly pull my camera out as usual, but when I see such natural beauty I find myself lost in it and unable to focus on taking the photo. To sum it up into one word Southern Iceland is “Breathtaking” and as a travel photographer a dream come true! Read More
