Naturfotograferna Arvika is a small group of Swedish photographers with 36 members who keep in close contact throughout the year. They are all enthusiastic nature photographers who wish to share their passion with the local community. Therefore, they organize the Arvika Fotofestival, that is open to the public, every second year. With the help of strong will, a lot of voluntary work (and sponsors of course), they manage to create an event to remember, year after year. This year the festival was arranged on 6 February and it offered an amazing line-up of speakers (including Anders Geidemark, Magnus Elander and Brutus Östling, to name but a few), excellent presentations, lots of small exhibitions and delicious food!

 

We gave two presentations at the festival: Iceland and Wild Laponia. Both presentations contained multimedia shows that we produced together with our friend, Hungarian composer Csabi Kalotás.

Thank you Lennart Halvarsson, Hans Flyman, Patrik Petterson, Birger Höglund, Lars Johanson and all of the other members of the club! Many thanks for working so hard to make this festival such a special experience for so many people in a small place like Arvika!

In the last weekend of January I attended at the naturArt Nature Photo Festival in Budapest and gave a presentation about our project "Wild Laponia". I had a wonderful time at the festival, where more than 400 visitors were enjoying a long line of colorful presentations, including the one given by Sergey Gorshkov from Russia, on Saturday afternoon.

The fantastic Festival Photo Montier attracts a large number of visitors every year—indoor- and outdoor exhibitions, lectures and workshops offer interesting programs and activities for four days. In 2015, the festival was held from 19 to 22 November. Despite the tragic events in Paris earlier in November, it was a successful and memorable event once again, with approx. 37.000 visitors.

Internationally recognized photographers James Balog, Vincent Munier and Stefano Unterthiner (to name but a few) exhibited some of their best work at the 2015 festival.

We were invited to Montier-en-Der to present our Iceland work, including our exhibition and multimedia show (18 minutes) that was played on a loop during the festival days.

Since 2005, we have traveled together as a team, constantly being on the move to explore and photograph landscapes and wildlife, with special interest in the Nordic countries. Our projects capture different parts of the "Cap of the North", in a never-ending search for surprising scenes and the magic light that is so characteristic of this region. It is the desire to get back to our roots — to live with nature that inspires us to create the images that we do.

We are members of The Photo Society, a group of contributing photographers for National Geographic Magazine.
