We can find windy roads in many places in Northern Norway, but finding the right angle to photograph them can be another story. Catching this incredible aurora into the narrow valleys of Senja took me good 2 hours of waiting under -10 degrees C, in a particularly awkward position perched on a sharp rock edge.

I had studied and found this place using digital maps. I could see the potential before going there but I had never seen anyone taking a photo of it this way. Taking a photo is something I love, but working hard beforehand to plan the photo is something I live for.

Originally from France, Virgil was born on September 26th, 1988.
He grew up in a small town between Lyon and Switzerland and left France in May 2011 with a backpack on his back to explore the world and discover his passions for the great outdoors and photography.
He has now been teaching and photographing the Northern Lights in the Arctic regions, in Northern Norway for a couple of years and it quickly escalated as his main focus. This huge passion pushes him everyday and night to improve and it became now part of his everyday life. NorthernLights are a unique feature of his photography style.
