Audun Rikardsen Captures Magnificent Whales on The Arctic Side of The World

Audun Rikardsen is a talented self-taught photographer, who raised in a fishing community in northern Norway and has always been fascinated by the Arctic coast’s wildlife. Audun is also a Professor in freshwater and marine biology at the University of Tromsø and a Scientific Advisor at the Norwegian Institute for Nature Research. “Most of my pictures are taken locally or during job-related field work,” he says. “Photography is combined with my other interests where I utilize knowledge about biology and the coastal area.”

For me, nature photography is about having fun, remembering special moments, and sharing my fascination of the Arctic coastline’s wildlife and culture, often from new and unusual perspectives.

Since starting photography in 2009, Audun Rikardsen has won several awards, including Arctic Photographer of the Year in 2014.
