I'm a freelance photographer and my project range has a wide spectrum. I shoot family portraits, editorial subjects, advertisements and corporate content. My background in photography is mainly editorial, where I did everything from gossip and glamour to food and interior. In Iceland I also have a good reputation in pet photography, specializing mainly in dogs.
- I've always been a straight-A student and I thought the smartest thing to do was to study engineering. I was on the edge of getting a bachelor degree in engineering when I took a u-turn and realized I wanted to become a photographer.
- Besides my family and friends, I could never live without fresh organic fruits, my toothbrush and candlelight.
- I'm a smiley person and I'm told I have an infectious laughter. Many of my friends consider me their personal psychologist, which is probably what I would be doing if I wasn't such a brilliant photographer! ;)
