With only four hours of sunlight per day in December, alpine adventures in Iceland usually start long before the sun comes up. In order to take advantage of our time in the dark, we booked a shoot with Balmuda, a Japanese brand known for their sleek, sophisticated lanterns. The goal was to highlight the product’s futuristic form factor using the unearthly features found on Iceland’s south coast, juxtaposing the lantern’s adjustable brightness and different colored beams against icebergs of all shapes and sizes. The project turned into one of our favorite shoots to date, and we were honored when Balmuda asked to feature our story in their Better Moments, Better Life series. Check it out!
