“I find silence and serenity in myself when I spend time in nature and feel its authenticity. When the blizzard is raging, when the rain and the wind make animals and people seek shelter, or when night descends over the forest. For me it’s not only about getting the perfect picture of an animal or a bird, but more about capturing the uniquely intense mood or feeling that I only experience in wild nature.”

“Since 2005 (when I served in one of the Danish military special forces, the Sirius Patrol, for two years) I have spent two further years in the northern parts of Greenland meeting the local people and working on photography projects. My driving force is a sense of adventure and my fascination for nature, and my curiosity and empathy for other cultures – from the indigenous peoples of South America to Greenlanders in the northernmost settlements – has led me to many remote regions.”

“My work for WWF might help to make a difference. Photos, videos and lectures, together with WWF’s exciting projects, can help to convey the importance of everybody making an effort to respect and appreciate the earth and the amazing variety of creatures that live here with us.”

“In 2018 I started my publishing company which will publish my future books and calendars. My goal is to share my fascination of nature and to share the beauty og the natural world. Beside my latest book Silence of the North I have published the children book Rævehvalpen.
