Arild Heitmann, 35, is a well established landscape photographer based in the small town of Evenskjer. Large portions of his childhood were spent in the woods and the mountains chasing large trout. In 2007 he started bringing his camera on these trips and this was the start of a growing career as a nature photographer.
