Last weekend we got the wonderful news that Erlend Haarberg won the Photographer of the Year award at the Golden Turtle international nature photography competition. What a pleasant surprise and great honour to be named overall winner in a competition with more than 10.000 entries and a jury that has been composed of some of the most respected professionals in the field of nature photography!

Nine images of Erlend have been awarded, five of them from the mountain area in Middle-Norway where where he has been working most actively in the last 30 years, with a special focus on mountain hares.

The prize-giving ceremony took place in Moscow on 13 October 2017.

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.
