Mads Peter Iversen, fotograf og bosiddende i Aarhus. Jeg er uddannet lærer med en kandidatgrad i pædagogisk filosofi. Jeg startede med at fotografere i sommeren 2011 og min erfaring med videoredigering strækker sig tilbage til 2002. Foruden mine billeder her på siden, kører jeg en YouTube kanal med over hundrede videoer om fotografering.
Mads Peter Iversen, a photographer living in Aarhus. An educated schoolteacher with a master degree in educational philosophy. After trying out other photography genres, such as headshot photography and commercial videography with great success, I've settled on fine art landscape pictures. I started out as a photographer in 2011 and my experience with video editing goes back to 2002.
I find my inspiration all over the world but I'm especially drawn to the nordic, cold and harsh yet stunningly beautiful nature.
I'm a child of the postmodern era and has grown up with action movies such as Armageddon, The Rock and Batman, fantasy movies such as Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Avatar and Game of Thrones and computer games such as Warcraft and Diablo. All of these influence my photography heavily. And then... in the back of my head roams the Scandinavian minimalism, which pops up on different occasions. If you're in doubt about what I mean, check out my YouTube.
I often think of my art as expressions of feelings. That's also the reason why my pictures are not just black and white or just colorful and shiny. It's the full spectrum all the way from the relaxing and peaceful over the epic awe and wonder to the dramatic and depressive. It can be a mix of feelings, it can be confusing, it can be simple and it can be fresh. I shoot to edit. Half the work is done in the editing phase, where the pictures come to life and where the mood I'm in influence the final product.

Grand Jury Winner in "Long Exposure Views Photo Contest" featured by ViewBug!
“This image caught my eye and spoke to me in so many dimensions. I enjoy that the photographer has done a wonderful job of taking the viewers eye and masterfully leads it around and through this image. The black sand in the foreground does not allow the viewers eye to leave the composition. At the same time the photographer uses a shutter speed that is not too long nor too short creating just the right amount of motion in the water. The composition allows for the viewer to remain in the image by not cutting any of the rocks that our eyes enjoy as we drift around from foreground to background. The detail in the cool tonality of the highlights and shadows led me to select this images as the Grand prize winner!” – Ken Sklute
