My Photo scholarship 2011 entry

Worldwide | Monday, 7 November 2011 | flickr photos



These photos where taken at Myrar in Dyrafirdi, Iceland. Valdimar Gislason is an eiderdown farmer. Eiderdown farming is an old tradition in Iceland and on Myrar is one of the biggest eiderdown farm in Iceland and was once the biggest in Europe.
Where big colonies of Common Eider are there will also be predators like eagles and snow foxes. The rivalry between man and fox has been going on since the Vikings settled Iceland.

My name is Ingolfur Bjargmundsson and I‘m from Iceland. I‘m married and we have two wonderful children. After my first child was born, about nine years ago, I bought my first digital camera and started taking pictures of my family and friends. In these nine years my photography has evolved greatly.
I have always had passion about photography ever since I saw my first National Geography magazine at my grandparents house at the age of eight. When I'm taking pictures I feel very free and motivated. I get kind of an adrenaline rush when everything comes together, that is light, landscape and catching the moment, I forget about time and place and the camera takes over.
If capturing the perfect picture means you have to get up before sunrise, walk the distance and wait for the right moment then I‘m up for the challenge.
I have mainly been taking pictures of my beautiful country and trying to capture the essence of it. I like to use natural lighting so I can get the most accurate scene as I picture it in my mind.
What I want to do more of is to travel to different countries and get the essence of that country, if it is the wild life, nature or the people in their every day life.
It would be an honor to get this experience and a guidance from a professional photographer.
