Fine Art Arctic Fox Prints on Display in Iceland at the Arctic Fox Centre

I am very excited to announce that the national Arctic Fox Centre in Sudadvik, Iceland is now displaying a selection of my prints of the Arctic Fox taken over the last five years in the Hornstrandir Nature reserve. Copies of my open edition book ‘Melrakki’ are also available from the centre. The Arctic Fox Centre is a non-profit research and exhibition centre, focusing on the arctic fox (Vulpes lagopus) – the only native terrestrial mammal in Iceland.

The Arctic Fox Centre was established on September 15th 2007 in Sudavik Westfjords. Founders were 42, mostly local people, tourist operators and municipalities in the Westfjords. All of which share their interest in the arctic foxes and believe in carefully managing ecotourism in Iceland. The idea of the Arctic Fox Centre comes from prof. Pall Hersteinsson, University of Iceland and he serves as a quality witness for the centre. The long term aim is to collect all available knowledge and material relevant to the arctic fox past and present.

Finalist ANZANG Nature Photographer of the Year 2019

Early this morning (Iceland time) I received the exciting news that one of my photographs has been selected for the final round of judging for ANZANG Australia and New Zealand Nature Photographer of the Year competition for 2019. This is the fifth time I have had images in the finals of ANZANG (I did not enter last year). I had actually planned not to enter any more online competitions that did not judge the print, but in a moment of weakness I caved as I wanted to continue to support the good work of ANZANG and the south Australian museum. I hope to share the photograph here on my blog as soon as the final round of judging is completed.

Australia World Photographic Cup Selection 2019 Nature Category

In some exciting news, I recently learned that one of my photographs from APPA this year (READ the Round Up) has been selected to represent Australia in the World Photographic Cup Nature category.  This is the second time one of my photographs has been chosen to represent Australia in this prestigious competition. Last time it was the reportage category with one of my photographs taking out the Bronze Medal. I cant as yet share which photograph has been selected – but will do so as soon as I am able.

The WPC was founded in 2013 as a cooperative effort by The Federation of European Photographers (FEP) and Professional Photographers of America (PPA). Its singular goal is to unite photographers in a spirit of friendship and cooperation. A Governing Committee has been created to conduct the ongoing affairs of the competition, also supported by UAPP (United Asian Professional Photography) and AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography). The brotherhood and sisterhood of photography is a bond that transcends language, culture, and geography. That’s the foundation behind the World Photographic Cup, an one of a kind international team competition. Sure, there are lots of other competitions, but there is just one World Photographic Cup.
