Mads Peter Iversen
Mads Peter Iversen lives in Denmark. His interest in photography exploded in 2011 and he soon decided his future. He has been working as a full-time landscape photographer since 2016.
He is a schoolteacher with a master’s degree in educational philosophy. In short, perhaps this may be the reason for his talent training and guiding photographers, proof of this is his success on his YouTube channel.
He finds his inspiration all over the world, but he is especially drawn to both, the cold, harsh, and epic landscapes of Atlantic countries like Iceland, the Faroe Islands, and Norway, as well as the more calm, ethereal, and serene forest scenes.
“I am a child of the postmodern age and grew up with action movies such as Armageddon, The Rock and Batman. With fantasy movies such as Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Avatar and Game of Thrones, and computer games like Warcraft and Diablo. All of this influence my photography heavily. And then… in the back of my head roams the Scandinavian minimalism, which pops up on different occasions.”
Since 2019, Mads Peter Iversen has developed a drive to photograph and document his local environment even more, resulting his Denmark portfolio to skyrocket. He certainly loves being out in nature and photographing many different landscapes, which makes his photos very varied.
For Mads, photography does not end with the shot. “The camera can’t capture “reality” as it appears in front of us, so half the work is done in the editing phase. That’s where the pictures come to life and where the mood I’m in influences the final photo.”
Some of his recognitions are EPSON Digital Art Winner, Highest scoring Vertical Image, honorable mentions at Monochrome Photography Awards 2017. He also has countless followers on his social media accounts and on his YouTube channel.
