Christopher Lund

Christopher Lund was born 1973 in Reykjavík, Iceland. He grew up with photography and studied mainly through working with his father Mats Wibe Lund who is well known in Iceland for his aerial photography.

In 1993, he graduated from college (majoring in Natural Sciences) and moved to Trondheim, Norway, where he worked as a photographer and a lab technician at Melhuus A/S. Between 1994 and 1998, he continued to work with his dad and was responsible for both analog and digital processing in his company. Between 1998 and 1999, he moved to Viborg in Denmark to study photography at Medieskolerne. While there, he also worked for Grundfos a/s as a photographer, as well as doing his own little startup called Pixel Produktion. Chris moved back to Iceland just before the end of 1999 and throughout 2000-2001 he was the manager of The Icelandic Image Library. In 2001 he founded Dikta (professional digital photo lab) which he ran for a couple of years, until he went 100% freelance as a Photographer, Fineart Printer and Prepress Specialist.

Chris does all sorts of photography: People, events, landscape and architecture. He also does Fine Art Printing for artists and galleries and prepress work for publishing companies.

He gradually shifted his focus more and more into traveling and landscape photography since this is where his passion lies. In 2009 he decided to become a certified guide and entered the Certified Guide Course in the Continuing Education department of the University of Iceland which he gradutated from in 2010. Now he enjoys doing what I loves most – photography and traveling.

“Through my work as a photographer I have learned a lot. Every trip offers a new lesson. Both in photography and life itself. For me, the best moments in life are those when I connect with nature. That includes connecting with myself and others – since we are all an inseparable part of nature. - My mission is to share the passion of photography, create great memories and offer the best photographic experience – rain or shine, day or night.”
