The artist stories
For example, when I began work on my series of space art, I wanted to provide a beautiful and accessible approach towards subjects and theories that were so much bigger than myself and provide a way to celebrate the science that created them.”

Her story is best told in her own words:
“One day it hit me! I remember it so well, I had just arrived at Copenhagen Airport, and as I entered the metro, I thought to myself. This is NOT what I want! I don’t want to be standing in a packed metro, I don’t want to be living in some small apartment anymore feeling like a chicken in a cage, I don’t want to constantly be looking at my clock and be running for every second, I don’t wanna wake up to see a grey concrete wall first thing in the morning. I realized at that moment I wanted the feeling of an open space, a place where nature sets the pace, a place where I wake up seeing the ocean and nature first thing in the morning, a place I can be totally alone if I want to. For me, that meant true freedom. It was the Faroese nature that was drawing me back. Born, raised, and surrounded by it, it was my playground, a place where I would explore and express myself, a place that felt safe and where I could find comfort. I had lost my entire identity by being in a city and needed to go back to find myself again.
I love to show travelers what the Faroe Islands is all about, what makes this place so unique compared to others both through my photography, and my guided tours. Right now I am getting my new tour operation company up and running smoothly and then I have a big wish to get into filmmaking again.

No weather or hardships seem to stop him from grabbing his camera and drone and step out in the wild. Once out there, he's as interested by discovering unique angles with his lens as by the spectacular scenery of his homeland Canada. And most importantly, he has a natural gift for transmitting that love. It's almost as if you could feel the rain pouring on the grass, smell the maple trees in the woods and hear the crisp of the snow under his feet.
“I took one photograph earlier this year called "Fire & Ice". The day I took that image, we had just received a heavy snowfall the night before. The whole city and surrounding areas were covered with at least six inches of snow, it was beautiful. The weather also turned out nice that day. Since it was the weekend, I had time off and naturally wanted to go shoot. I met up with friends and we decided to head up one of the local mountains. As I was driving up this plowed paved road, I grazed just a bit of powder that was on the side and it pulled my car into a steep ditch. Were it not for the tree that caught me, I would have rolled the car and likely totalled it. Thankfully, I was alright and managed to exit the car safely after it had come to a halt. After a few hours, two large tow trucks came by and managed to pull my car out of this steep ditch. Despite the few dents and the fact my car was on a nearly 45 degree angle for a few hours, I managed to turn it on once it was back on the pavement. After coming home, with no photos, I figured I wouldn't go out any more that day after what had happened. But I noticed the skies were gradually starting to light up for sunset, and I just couldn't resist capturing a sunset in a snowy landscape. So, I went and hopped in my dented car and drove down the road. I ended up capturing a photograph of a road leading off into the sunset, that later became one of my most popular images to date. That sunset ended up being quite the silver lining to what seemed like a failed day.”
