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.
