Amateur Spotlight on Arnar Birgisson

Arnar BirgissonCan you imagine living, working and photographing under these conditions?

Arnar Birgisson is an amateur landscape photographer from Iceland currently studying geophysics at the University of Iceland. He’s been photographing since early summer 2007 and posting to his blog since November 2008.

This young man shoots in conditions most of us would never even consider (especially those of us living in warmer climates). He also works in an avalanche rescue team which provides him with some wonderful photographic opportunities. His gallery is full of incredible images from Iceland and his blog is a great read.
