Hi, I’m Mal Dickson and I’m a photographer and guide based on the coast of west Norway, north of Bergen and close to the mouth of the mighty Sognefjord, Norway’s longest and deepest. I’m originally from Scotland but came to Norway in 2014 and never looked back. Through my work I also hope to capture and communicate the spirit of a place, and how it is to be human within it. Since I came to Norway, I have developed a deep appreciation of the benefits of understanding the context - cultural and historical - of what I photograph. I also like to pass on that understanding. That has resulted in a guiding service that I have set up, specializing in Viking history. I have been an active Viking re-enactor since 2015 and was Head of Guiding at Njardarheimr viking village in Gudvangen in 2017-2018.
