My name is Per and I am a marine biologist who enjoy nature photography as an interactive way of enjoying and appreciating the beautiful nature in which I live. I’m based in Nuuk, Greenland, which supplies me with phenomenal photo opportunities just outside my door. I primarily shoot in Greenland, but am also intrigued by other natural habitats and wildlife around the world. I lived in Maniitsoq for a duration of my early childhood, and since came back to Greenland in 2011 to work on my master thesis in biology. After completing my master I returned to Greenland in 2016 and have lived here since. I Work with nature management and do photography in my spare time. My personal passion lies with wildlife photography, attempting to capture moments with minimal interference on animals in their natural environment. I also practice landscape photography, being inspired by the vast open spaces of the Arctic. Landscape photography is a challenging and fascinating field trying to do justice to the natural scene, whether it’s mountains, glaciers or seascapes. Finally I also work with astrophotography, from capturing stars in nightscapes to the thrill of photographing aurora borealis. Creating photos with aurora never gets boring, as this ever changing phenomenon always creates new opportunities.
