Thrainn Kolbeinsson is a freelance photographer based in Iceland. Before he got into photography he was a full-time Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competitor, coach, and clinical psychologist.
After getting his first film camera a few years ago, his interest in photography grew quickly, adding yet another reason to go outside and enjoy nature. For him, this was the perfect combination of activity and creativity.
After some time, companies started reaching out and what started out as just another hobby slowly turned into his full-time profession.
Thrainn has always been an active individual, with adventures and the outdoors often taking the lead role in his daily life.
This is clearly echoed in his approach to photography, which revolves around telling visual stories from the outdoors and documenting the incredible landscapes of Iceland.
Thrainn has worked on a variety of projects, always with the goal of producing originial content that will make people pause for a moment and at best, evoke a desire to go out and explore.
