Ivakkak Official Photographer at Ivakkak
I fell in love with the North a long time ago, for the snow and some skiing in the mountains.And then, for the light and the beautiful landscapes; and I kept coming back for the warm friendship of its inhabitants and the feeling of freedom while traveling on the land.

As a photographer, I learned to read the light! I am always on the lookout for its magic, in colors, in patterns, in its contrasts; my goal is to bring a reflection on the beauty of nature and its inhabitants; my challenge is to show space and motion;my vision is that « light is always there »!

This will be my ninth participation as Ivakkak's photographer.

I hope you enjoy my pictures, I will post the images I like the most.
