Japan and Iceland

 In my last update I promised you a new entry about Japan and Iceland to follow soon. That soon is long time gone and so many things have happened in the time. I am shooting new contents almost everyday and try hard to keep up with getting images out in time.  I still don’t want to keep those images from Japan from you. I also want to share some of the images I took in Iceland last December with you. The Japan trip was already in November and we traveled to Japan to catch the autumn colours in Kyoto and in Tokyo. As many of you may know – I am making my living through stock photography. Last year I submitted some images from Japan to my agent and they got distributed through a wide network of agents around the world. Since then the guidelines have changed though and loads of images from Japan are getting rejected now for commercial use because of cultural reasons. To be precise it is images from Temple’s that are not suitable for commercial use anymore. Obviously I do respect this but I still want to share those images with you – just for the reason so that you can see the beauty Japan has to offer.  Now this blog update will combine 2 trips in one update and both destinations are far away fro each other. Next country is Iceland. I lived in Iceland for many years and it is still second home to me in a way. Every year I get back to Iceland during the summer to work as a guide and shoot more contents for my image library. The real challenge though is to shoot the winter in Iceland and it’s short day’s. The sub zero temperatures and bad weather creates another challenge. Still Iceland is becoming a very popular destination for winter tourism as well and finding hotels in Reykjavik during the busy Christmas and new years season bears it’s own challenge. The scenery and the views are rewarding though and worth all the trouble – just a bit more challenging.  Thank you for checking out my blog.
