Benjamin Hardman


Benjamin is a landscape photographer and natural history cinematographer based in Iceland.

With Iceland as a home base, the fragile, barren and isolated landscapes of the frozen North have become the core focus of his work. After 10 years in the creative sphere, multiple solo exhibitions and more than 30 assignments as a polar expedition photography specialist, Benjamin has developed an intricate knowledge, connection and passion for documenting the lands of Iceland, Greenland and Svalbard. Benjamin utilises social media to share his imagery and first hand experiences of glacial retreat, sea ice changes and the culture and wildlife of the North, with an aim to help raise awareness of our rapidly changing global climate.

On the side of his personal Arctic endeavours, Benjamin has worked for over 5 years as a commercial photographer for the Icelandic outdoor clothing brand 66 North, transitioning to the role of Editor-In-Chief in 2019. In 2020, Benjamin embarked on a new path in his career, working as a cinematographer and drone operator on a major natural history series.

Benjamin has worked on assignments for such clients as Silverback Films, 66 North, DJI, Icelandair, Olympus, Goretex, Easyrig, Land Rover, Suzuki, National Geographic, Air Iceland Connect, Ólafur Arnalds, Front Runner, Bioeffect, as well as the tourism boards of Visit Svalbard, Visit Faroe Islands, Visit Greenland, Travel Alberta and Inspired by Iceland.
