SVALBARD AND A LOT OF PASSION

I want to spread the beauty of the Arctic

The polar bug – an imaginary parasite which affects each person who enters the polar region. But don’t be afraid, the bug is a good fellow – everyone treats it as a beloved pet. The bug just “infects” your mind and doesn’t let you forget the beauties of the harsh, raw, and pure polar landscapes. In 2008, the polar bug caught me, and since then, I am falling in love with the Arctic over and over again.

When I moved to Svalbard, an Arctic archipelago in the Barents sea, I started out like everybody up here – I was working wherever I was needed. I was highly infected by the polar bug and I needed to be as close to the Arctic as possible. During the following years, I started to focus on tourist guiding. This way I could share my passion and love for Svalbard with others. And meanwhile, I was improving in photography and it happened to become my profession.

I watched the nature change. I watched birds come and go every year. I watched reindeer walking through the tundra (and the city). I watched polar bears with cubs wandering across icy plains. I can show it to you as well. Don’t be afraid of the polar bug, it is not that bad to be infected.
