Intensivelight – that's Ulrich Kunst and Bettina Scheidulin. We're a married couple living in Västernorrland in Sweden and we are working as professional photographers and filmmakers for more than twenty years.
We moved here after years of travelling because we fell in love with the vibrant nature and fascinating culture of northern Scandinavia. Now we live in a wild and beautiful part of Sweden with deep forests and many creeks, lakes and rivers where we can enjoy filming and photographing wild animals near our home.
Our main subjects are nature and wildlife and to tell the stories of people living close to nature and their culture. Both having an artistic background, we love to play with the tools photography offers and to use light, time and motion to create new images.
The light here in northern Scandinavia has its own magic: there are the golden nights around midsummer, the red glow of short winter days and the immense starry skies and green glowing northern lights of the long winter nights. You can find real tranquility in the wild and vast nature, hearing only the songs of birds, the humming of midges, the porling of water and the rustling of leaves when a moose or reindeer moves through the trees. Even time feels different here on the border to Lapland, the rhythm of life seems to be slower.
We do a lot of freelance work and fine art as well as documentary projects.
Our work has been published around the world in books, advertising campaigns and in movies and commercials. Among the clients using our footage are the BBC, PBS and Pinewood Studios.
