Virgil is now specialised in Arctic Landscape and Night Photography. He has a huge focus on polar light, and the famous aurora borealis.
''Patience and creativity are all you need.''
Virgil is self-taught and believes in self-guided learning along with mutual knowledge sharing. His unending passion for photography and the outdoors pushes him to improve constantly, making photography part of his everyday life.
NorthernLights are a unique feature of his photography style and lead him to build robust and constructive compositions around them. The movement of the eye into the frame is the whole beauty of building strong images. The photos you find in his gallery are the result of thousands of hours outside in snowstorms, strong winds, extreme temperatures, and a tremendous amount of time spent waiting on nature for that precise, extraordinary moment.
"A great aurora image is a great image even without aurora."
Really often, the aurora is the wow effect of the photograph, the icing on the cake. Virgil is always oriented on understanding his surroundings, finding the best angles for his compositions, and finding the right orientation to sublime the light in relation to his chosen subjects. Many attempts are made to capture the unique shot, and this is what makes stories behind the photo; This is what makes a cliché unrepeatable.
