The otherworldy volcanic landscapes of the Icelandic interior, Landmannalaugar.
Over the last few months I’ve had the opportunity put the new #MavicPro2 to the test by flying it in some the most wild & unforgiving of regions. From Iceland, Tasmania to the high peaks of the Andes in Peru it’s inspiring me to think outside the box & capture new perspectives as I continue to capture stories on my journey round the world.
Looking back at the route we took as we navigated in & around each of the @visitwestfjords. Throughout the journey I was filled with a constant feeling of intrigue watching the landscape change & noting the unique differences between all of fjords, it truely is and incredible place.
A place is only as good as the people who call it home. This couldn’t be more true for the people we met on our journey through the @visitwestfjords who call one of the most beautiful places on earth home. During our visit to the small village of Bolungarvik we met with a local fisherman who was able to share stories on how people lived & died by the sea through all seasons and adverse weather. It’s a really humbling experience to take a moment to get know the people and share the stories that make these places special.
Carved & etched by the forces of the ocean & earth the @visitwestfjords are home to some of the most dramatic landscapes richest history in all of iceland. We travelled in & out of each of the fjords stopping in each of the small fishing villages to hear their story & how they live & connect with their past. Steeped in Viking history, Icelandic Sagas & chaotic witch hunts its easy to feel a little bit of magic if you let yourself believe.
A brief but albeit amazing moment as we shared a little piece of the North Atlantic with this solo Humpback whale as it navigated it’s way through the westfjords. I’ve just returned from incredible trip to the @visitwestfjords of Iceland where we learned first hand about the history of the remote communities of region and how they connect with and live off there natural surroundings. It was a humbling experience to share stories about Icelandic culture and hear about the way of life for the local people it’s early settlers and it’s Viking past. I can’t wait to show you more from what I experienced during my time here thanks to
Unexplored lands west of the divide, a place where the wild thrives & humans don’t... Swipe right for the entire scene, a 4 shot panorama captured this winter hanging out of the plane.
Fresh snow, alpine lake & sunrise inversion, hats off to you Fiordland...

Beauty in the chaos..
Face to face with the remnants of once was part New Zealand’s largest glacier. Each & every time I visit this place I’m left feeling both in awe at how incredible this world is but also frustration due to rapid change and decline of the glaciers in this region. Do what you can, make a change..
