Asgard Beyond - mountaineering shot in Iceland

It has been a long while since I wrote something for this blog but I had good reasons. After our epic South America trip I went to Iceland for a couple of months to work as a tour and mountain guide. On my return back home to Thailand (after almost 11 month on the road) I was quite happy not to repack the duffle and go travel right away again. Also Siri and I needed to prepare for our big day – our wedding! We tight the knot on November 18th and celebrated with friends and family here in Bangkok. We went to Japan right away after that and then to Iceland again for some serious winter adventures – more about those trips in the next blog update.

First I want to share with you a little inside from last autumn though. Before I left Iceland I had the pleasure to shoot for my friends at Asgard Beyond, Asgard Beyond is a fairly new travel agency in Iceland. They might be new on the travel market as Asgard Beyond but behind the name hides a group of highly trained and qualified mountain guides, who have been in the guiding and mountaineering business for ages. The shoot I did for them had the aim to produce new images for their brochure and website. We concentrated on 2 parts of their trips: Rock & Ice. The first day we drove out to Solheimajokull to get some Ice-climbing shots and general ice hiking images. For the second day we concentrated on rock climbing close to Reykjavik. We climbed a 3 pitch route with fantastic views of the city. Both times we were blessed with beautiful weather. Working with Asgard Beyond was like going out with old friends and it made the shoot very relaxed and even more enjoyable. Beside the fun we had the shoot reflects the high grade of professionalism of these highly skilled mountaineers. Nothing what these guys (and girl) couldn’t do on the ice or rock. Check out more of the work I did for them on their website:

This is it for this blog update. Stay tuned because 2018 will have some exciting new images coming up. There will be a new bike and more images from South East Asia by bike and we just purchased a brand new underwater housing for one of our cameras. So we will take our photography below sea level this year. Sign up for the newsletter at the bottom of this page.
