About Me

Born in Denmark, I came to Canada at an early age and have been fortunate since then to travel extensively across Canada from coast-to-coast-to-coast, which has allowed me to experience many remote areas including the high Arctic, mountains and coast lines, prairies, and the rugged Appalachia of eastern Canada ...

Geography and the landscape and people of Canada have lead me in many directions - as a scientist, an adventurer, and a photographer. Highlights are many, but two do come to mind: the first a six week unsupported ski and climbing expedition across Bylot Island in Nunavut; this was not my first trip north but ranks as one for the books - the other was leading the RCGS Mt. Logan  expedition to measure the height of Canada's tallest peak - this was a seminal experience, combining as it did, science, adventure, and photography. It also highlighted the value of using photography to inspire.

Today my passion and my goal is to use my images to inspire - to inspire us to treat this country, this planet, and our many cultures with respect - to inspire exploration of Canada and the planet - to inspire Canadians to recognize the value of our unique multi-cultural society and to recognize the importance of reconciliation.  In Canada we have a kaleidoscope of unique landscapes, wildlife, and people. I am a proud Canadian and not a day goes by that I don't cherish that.

It has been and continues to be a privilege to work with and befriend people across this country and other parts of the world ... and it is an extreme privilege to have been recognized by our country through the awarding of  the Commemorative Medal for the 125th Anniversary of Canada, the Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal, and the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medal as well as being a fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society. I was awarded the Order of Canada in 2022.

I now call Haines Junction (Dakwäkäda), Yukon home. Located on the Traditional Territory of the Champagne and Aishihik First Nations, we live on the edge of the largest non-polar icecap in the world. Our glaciers, like all others around the world are shrinking, resulting in profound changes to the lives of our people and the land.
