Dagur Jonsson, Photographer / Writer

I have always considered myself an artistic person and I have always been involved in art in one way or another. Photographing is something new and an exciting form of expression for me. I have a background in drawing and painting and learning the basic drawing skills helps me a lot in photographing. I love doing moody shots with lots of emotion and try to process my images so they look a bit dramatic with a story to tell. I love shooting landscape with dramatic scene like dark clouds or captivating sunlight. I spend a lot of time shooting within the Reykjavik capital area and use a Canon 700D and a Samyang 14mm f/2.8 lens. I usually process my shots in Lightroom and Efex Pro to give them the extra mood I am always looking for.

Here are examples of my favorite’s photo spots in the western part of the Reykjavik capital area.
