Professional photographer, pilot and a guide
Haukur Snorrason (Hawk) is a professional photographer, Iceland guide and pilot with 27 years of experience in landscape photography by hiking, driving and flying. Author of two photo-books of Icelandic landscape and nature and has provided photographs for countless landscape calendars. Haukur started his carrier at an early age accompanying his father Snorri, who travelled around Iceland for his hobby; namely landscape photography teaching and lending Haukur his cameras he used in the seventies and eighties like Retina, Edixa, Mamya, Nikon FM and later Hasselblad. This ultimately made Haukur to choose his professional carrier in 1989 as a photographer graduating in Reykjavik 1993. Todays camera Nikon D800.
Haukur (Hawk) says:
“Iceland is wonderfully exotic, challenging and tough. The weather is unstable and so is the light. Light changes in every month of the year and the landscape is varied with so many colours and shapes. After 27 years in the field I am still learning; seeing new forms, new light and angles. I really do enjoy working and travelling with people from all over the world and proudly present my favorite interest to them—namely Iceland and the Icelandic nature.”
