I fly. Aviation has been a passion of mine for as long as I remember, and photography came in as a close second. The two hobbies are a great combination - and especially so in Iceland.
Flying provides a unique point of view. That is something pilots know so well. Having a camera alongside and being able to capture Icelandic scenery from above is the ultimate high a photographer can get. With the airplane, I get there quickly and safely, without having to worry about roads or traffic. But few are as dependent on good weather as I am.
The weather in Iceland doesn't allow for flying every day. In fact, we may have 150 flying days out of the 365 in a year. But when weather allows, there's no greater joy than flying around this beautiful island I'm lucky enough to call home.
Been flying for 26 years, and still loving every minute!
The following acronyms might be confusing, but they just tell you that I'm a certified pilot :)
CPL, FI(A), IR(A), ME IR
I also have a BS in Business Administration from Reykjavík University
