1. What elements make a great photograph for you?

A very good composition with an amazing light.

2. What was your most challenging image to capture, and why?

I was trying to capture a above and below photo of an iceberg in Iceland, got in the 2 degree water in my surf short would stay in the water for 20 seconds, would swim back to the beach run and move like a crazy person to warm up a bit and jump back in the water.

3. How does it feel when you are under the waves?

It feels amazing I am addicted to it, until you get smashed real hard on the reef or sand, got (perforated ear drums, reef cut, dislocated shoulder, bad knees).

Iceland : surfing, biking, swimming with iceberg and more…

Travel light 😉

Don`t follow the rules. Stay outside as long as you can, go camping hike a 100 miles 😉
