    How and why did you start with the photography you do?

    I just brough a drone one day ( I actually got given 4 by mistake. Result!) and started to take it on all my trips I went on and it's just grown into the passion it is of mine today, I can't go anywhere without taking my drone to get a bird's eye view of where I am.

    Costa Rica dec 2022 / Scotland Jan 2023 / Europe van trip for 1 year end of 2023 plus many more 2023 trips not planned yet.

    How do you get inspired? How do you decide on a certain motive?

    I just see a place or something in the moment or something I may have seen on social media, and I get the urge to want to capture it myself, but from the sky of course.

    From the idea to the realization, how do you approach your work?

    Most of my work is not planned and very much spontanious and trial and error untill I get that perfect shot.

    What was the inspiration? How did you find the setting? By chance?

    Inspiration wise I may see something online or on social media and want to create my own unique version of but mainly it's in the moment, I don’t like to plan to much, I love to explore of the beaten path, I find I get the best pictures when I don’t plan to much and I'm in a place and I just go with what I have at that moment.
