I am Nick, a freelance photographer.
In the past 10 years I‘ve been travelling and photographing around the world.
What I realized, though, was that I had gradually stopped seeking new destinations. I found a place that offered me a sense of stability and warmth where my inspiration and creativity amplified. Nature in all its’ forms was still surrounding me: Snowy landscapes, deep canyons, lakes and rivers, vast forests and of course the sea.
In the end, I think I found my destination, a place that has nurtured me, and has always been so close to me. That makes me feel home!
Μy last trip to Norway during February, 2017.
The Lofoten Archipelago is spread on the northwest side of Norway, very close to the borders of the Arctic Circle. It is a cluster of small fishing villages and is often called “the Foot of the lynx” because of its shape.
The islands are full of legends, maybe because of their natural beauty and their mysterious landscapes, or maybe because there the Sun either never rises or never sets. The only thing you can hear is the thousand voices of birds, the wind and the sound of the sea. That combination of the landscape which comes into view every morning and the sounds of nature is a priceless experience that fills you with energy and inspiration for the whole day, no matter what you have to face.
A timelapse video is a form of storytelling, without placing “borders” that words might do. It brings out the magnificence of nature, creating strong emotions to the viewer.
Iceland is said to be the Mekas landscape for photographers. It is considered as the country of fascinating contrasts. Broadly known as “The Land of Fire and Ice”, it is home to both a portion of the biggest ice sheets in Europe, and probably the most active volcanoes on the planet.
Iceland is the place where there is light and dimness, where long summer days with almost 24-hours of daylight are counterbalanced by short winter days.
Icelandic scenenery still remains for all intents and purposes untouched by human progress.

“a 4K timelapse masterpiece” – Sony Alpha Universe
“Whispering Iceland adds a dimension of drama that helps make it unique. Fast camera motion mixed with rack zooms and quick cuts work together to show Iceland as equal parts beautiful and desolate, a landscape that is somehow welcoming and inhospitable at the same time” – Digital Trends
