Who am I?
My name is Jeroen Van Nieuwenhove & I’m a Belgian landscape photographer - living in Reykjavík, Iceland. I have been living in Iceland for several years now.
I found my passion for photography very early on when I found an analog Canon SLR in our attic at the age of 10. I was immediately fascinated by using this analog beauty. Years later, after discovering the beauty that is Iceland, I found a new passion for landscape & nature photography.
I did an interview with This Adventure Life where I explain a little bit more about myself.
