—  About

I work as a cinematographer / DoP with directors, production agencies, and curators.

Based in Reykjavík, Iceland since 2010. I work locally and abroad.

Filmmaking is often a game of dimensioning returns. Many people accept ”good enough” but not me. I am always aiming to do reach the best possible heights, even if the budgets are tiny and the crews are small.

I have invested in high end Arri camera equipment because I don't want the camera to ever be the reason why the story isn't captured the best way possible. I’m always pushing for the top and I want to collaborate with people that will join me there.

Working primarily on commercial and documentary projects my approach is to work with small crews to maximize time for creative expression, creativity and flexibility.

Seeking to use natural light as much as possible to respect the integrity of space. Let the dark be dark and the light be light. Story and nature above all else.
