Sigurdur’s Artist Statement and Bio
Sigurdur is a photographer living in Iceland. It has been his passion for quite some time to photograph the landscapes of Iceland along with chasing the Northern Lights.
He has won multiple awards for his work as a photographer, both locally and internationally, expecially for his Aurora Borealis photos. Sigurdur has also written a book on how to shoot the Northern Lights.
Sigurdur is a certified tour operator by the Icelandic Tourist Board. Together with his friend Bragi they run Arctic Shots, a company specializing in photo tours around Iceland.
When he is not out shooting landscapes, he is photographing people/children/newborns in the studio. That along with his wedding/engagement photography has made his work schedule quite busy but as he says, “When you´re doing something you love, it isn’t really work”.
