Nature and Wildlife Photography

Our Work

This portal provides an overview of our work on nature and wildlife photography. The focus of our work is on wild animals and their environment, or simply on the beauty of nature in its various forms. We are avid bird and wildlife watchers and have travelled the world in search for new species. We like to share our travel experience and you will find here photos from various trips around the world, as well as the stories behind them. We used to do that with family and friends through videos and slide shows at gatherings but, in this era of communication, a presence on the web is a good addition. Enjoy this view on our portfolio websites and fine art products derived from our work.
