My focus was not on the iconic hotspots that made Iceland famous but the less visited and undiscovered features that had their own intrinsic values in texture, form and color. With each of my five visits I discovered much more by limiting myself to explore and familiarize myself with a small select unknown area becoming more an opportunistic photographer depending mostly on luck to find something that merited my attention. Whether I was climbing for days in the highlands of the interior, skirting calving glaciers, crossing a moonlike landscape or wandering a weatherbeaten shore, Iceland is a photographer's paradise.

I find anything above the tree-line absolutely fascinating and have been returning there for years. It's the combination of the unique light and stark contrast that stimulates me.
Besides seeing the grander scale these wild and open spaces have also taught me to explore the more subtle nuances of form and texture. To capture these finer details I use a 4 x 5 view camera. This slow methodical approach allows me to pay attention to content and composition.
Without the use of filters for colour enhancement the final image is a true representation of my vision.
