My name is Bjarne Riesto, and I am a professional nature photographer who lives in Vadsø. It is a small town in the eastern part of Finnmark, the northernmost county in Norway.
I get my inspiration form the arctic nature, frost and arctic night, northern light and the midnight sun. My main interest is nature- and landscape photography, but I also take other photos occasionally. On your request I'll shoot almost everything.
I sell photographs for commercial use (magazines, books, brochures, calendars, cards etc.). I also make enlargements and exhibit some selected photos. They are available for sale, in various techniques and sizes.
For the eleventh year in a row, I have made a calendar. It's a magnificent product with large colour photos that describes the special arctic light in my part of the world.
I have also made three photo books; “Out of the blue” 2006, “Kyst” (Coast) 2008 and "Varanger" 2010.
My photos are exhibited in many countries, like Sweden, Iceland, Finland and Russia. In 2011 Ukraine stands in the line. Please click here for a list of my exhibitions:
