My interest in photography started around 1980 and I got my first real camera, which was Ricoh KR10, 35mm, in 1982. I learned the basics in photographing from a photographer who had a studio in Isafjordur, my hometown, at that time.
In the beginnig I shot mainly landscape picture of the beautiful and harsh nature where I lived. I also took picture of people I met on my daily basis, but nothing professional.
I studied law at the University of Iceland after graduating from High school in Reykjavík. After three years studying law I started at The School of Photography in Reykjavík in the Autumn 2011 (http://www.ljosmyndaskolinn.is); and graduated in the beginning of the year 2014, as a professional Photographer.
