My Mission

Einar Rúnar Sigurðsson, Mountain Guide by the entrance of an Ice Cave in Svínafellsjökull Outlet Glacier.d (Christopher Lund/©2013 Christopher Lund)Volcanic eruption in Eyjafjallajökull, 19th of April 2010. On 14th of April 2010 Eyjafjallajökull resumed erupting after a brief pause, this time from the top crater in the centre of the glacier, causing meltwater floods (also known as jökulhlaup) to rush down the nearby rivers, and requiring 800 people to be evacuated. This eruption was explosive in nature and is estimated to be ten to twenty times larger than the previous one in Fimmvörðuháls. This second eruption threw volcanic ash several kilometres up in the atmosphere which led to air travel disruption in northwest Europe for six days from 15 April 2010, including the closure of airspace over most of Europe.

Through my work as a photographer I have learned a lot. Every trip offers a new lesson. Both in photography and life itself. For me, the best moments in life are those when I connect with nature. That includes connecting with myself and others – since we are all an inseparable part of nature.

To evolve as a photographer, one needs to shoot – and then shoot some more. It’s the same principle for everything we want to master. The more we work on it, the more we learn. But for most of us time is limited and therefor time is quite valuable.

If you are looking for a guide that doesn’t just take you to locations, but actively takes part in sharing the passion of photography, then look no further.  Sharing this passion with people is a privilege that I am lucky to call my job.

I focus on private workshops and I take great pride in representing my country. I have 20 years of experience as a professional photographer and I am an educated guide from the University of Iceland. For many of my clients the time the spend with me is the only time they will visit Iceland. How we spend that time and what we come away with is no small responsibility.

My mission is to share the passion of photography, create great memories and offer the best photographic experience – rain or shine, day or night.
