Greenland Photography Portfolio
Greenland is a massive island located in an autonomous Danish territory between the North Atlantic and Arctic oceans. Most of its land surface is covered in ice. The small population lives along the ice-free, fjord-lined coast, particularly in the southwest. Its northerly position above the Arctic Circle, results in natural phenomena such as summer’s midnight sun and winter’s Northern Lights.
I organized and led a Photo Workshop to Greenland since 2003. Nevada Wier, Martin Baily, Tom Bolt and many more also participated in these workshops.
Greenland is the world’s largest non-continental island. With a population of about 56,749, the citizens of this country speak Greenlandic (Kalaallisut), Danish, and English. During the Christmas season, eating habits are quite different as one of the delicacies they feast on during the holidays is mattak, which consists of raw whale skin with just a little blubber still attached to it.
The culture of Greenland has some similarities to the Greenlandic Inuit tradition, as most of the citizens are descended from Inuit. Many people still go ice fishing and there are annual dog-sled races in which everyone with a team participates.

The Greenland Photography Portfolio shows all the amazing sights, places and the rich and beautiful landmarks of Greenland which we experienced during my photo tour and workshops.
