About Stuart Thomson

I am a biologist and professional nature photographer from the UK. I have travelled in 7 continents, but fell in love with Svalbard as soon as I arrived for a visit in mid 2011. I've been living here and photographing ever since. I have a master degree in marine Biology which I attained through The University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS). Landscape photography is my passion in life. I am always trying to capture the feeling that Svalbard gives you inside, when you're out in nature. So if you feel something when you look at my pictures, I will be very happy. My pictures have been published in magazines, books, websites and even on the label of a cognac bottle. Credits include WWF Norway, Canadian Geographic, and numerous photography magazines including Photography Monthly.
