How did you get started in photography?

“I started taking photos of my family mostly at first. Then as I traveled more my photography became more about travel images.”

What was your first camera?

“I think it was around 2008 that I got a small Nikon Coolpix camera. It fit so well in my pocket. Since about 2013, I’ve had the Nikon D3100 and now I have a Nikon D7200.”

Who is one photographer that inspires you and why?

“I look at all the photographs by anyone. I have three favorite Icelandic photographers. Heiða Helgadóttir, Ragnar Axelsson and Ragnar Th. I think they are all great photographers in their respective fields.”

What’s the first thing you look for in composing your image?

“I’m looking for a fun light, and a fun background.”
