How would you describe your photographic style?
"I would say I combine documentary and commercial styles. I have a technical background, but I also like to shake that off every once in a while. I sometimes like to be anti-technical and do the complete opposite! I'm always inspired by nature and landscapes, so that shapes my style too."
When did you begin to explore videography?
"When I was a child, my dad used to take lots of videos documenting my childhood and we used to watch those a lot, and so I always knew video's power for triggering memories. The move for me happened when the Canon EOS 5D Mark II
was released. That changed the video world. When clients heard that was something I could do, I started to work more with video and it slowly evolved from there. Today, I shoot 60% video and 40% stills."
What would you say are the key elements to successful wilderness photography?
"Just get outside and go to places you know at different times of the day and in different weather – even if it's misty or there's a storm. If it's a beautiful day, it's not necessarily anything special. It doesn't give you that spectacular photo. If you go out when it's stormy and the sun is setting, that's when you find those special moments. That's also when you get inspiration to discover more places to achieve those kinds of pictures. Don't underestimate how the weather can affect the mood. Visit places when nobody else wants to go there."
What is next for you? Which ambitions remain unfulfilled?
"I want to get better at videography; there's a huge difference in how stories are told compared to stills photography and I'm keen to learn so much more about this. Storytelling is my biggest ambition now and I want to tell stories that matter, about nature and global warming."
