My interest in photography began at a young age. When I was a teenager, I worked for the local newspaper in a small town outside of New Orleans, Louisiana. During my college years I started a small but successful business photographing weddings and students preparing for graduation. Though I truly enjoyed the technical aspects of photography, I soon grew tired of the repetitive scenes. I put down my camera and thought that my days behind a lens were finished.
Nearly ten years after losing interest in photography, something incredible happened – I saw my first aurora. Since that cold, dark night in the far north of Sweden I was hooked. Since then I have spent thousands of hours outside photographing the star-filled skies.
My passion for the night sky was further peaked when I began working at the Aurora Sky Station where my actual job was to hunt for auroras. Today, Lights over Lapland is able to offer all inclusive multi day aurora photo expeditions, nightly aurora photo trips, customisable aurora photo adventures, HD Video, postcards, aurora souvenirs, and marketing images for individuals and companies all around the world.
