I’m Espen I was born in Bergen, Norway but I moved to Scotland in 2004 to study wildlife biology and conservation.  It took me a few years of volunteering after graduation before I finally landed what I thought was my dream job as an ecologist.  This job allowed me to travel all over Scotland to monitor birds, mammals and habitats, usually with a camera over my shoulder.  I got into this line of work as I’m passionate about wildlife and conservation.  However, when the environmental sector started to work on fracking projects I started to doubt my position as an ecologist

This lead me to start my own company so that I could choose the projects I worked on.  This also gave me a lot more spare time and I found myself out with my camera almost every day.  I had been a hobby photographer for years and really enjoyed taking photos of wildlife.  Now, I had time to take my hobby to a new level and I also started branching out into other photography genres.

After a visit to Thailand with my girlfriend in 2016, we came back thinking: why limit ourselves to Scotland? We decided to make our businesses location independent and subsequently sold our flat in Scotland.  The time had come to make photography my main business!

Since June 2017 we have travelled to France, Montenegro, Croatia, Norway, Vietnam, Thailand and Iceland. We currently rent a flat in Chiang Mai where we intend to stay for a few months of 2018 while further exploring southeast Asia.
