Photography   Travel Adventures    Conservation Stories


For many nature enthusiasts like myself, there is nothing quite like heading out into the wild at the grey of dawn, to be in the field with a camera in hand during late afternoon hours, or to set up camera trap systems in a remote wilderness area.


Untouched wilderness has become a rare luxury nowadays and we must protect and conserve whatever is left of it. Nearly all of our most precious wild places and biodiversity hotspots are in trouble: threatened with destruction through economic and demographic development. But pure and largely unspoilt nature can still be found in a few special places. Be it deep in a far and endless desert, or in a dry savannah that may have large rivers run through it. Be it in a tropical rain forest, high up in the mountains, along breathtaking shorelines, or under water, surrounded by the thousands of creatures inhabiting a coral reef.


Photography provides us fantastic ways to explore and capture our world's natural and cultural history, and translate our our travels into visual messages to support the work of organisations involved in environmental and species conservation, education and capacity building.


I have been a passionate traveller and photographer for a long time. This site contains my main online portfolio and blog: it is where I share my own wilderness experiences along with some thoughts and information on travel, nature and conservation.


Please feel free to explore and do not hesitate to contact me should you wish to find out more about my travel destinations, about a particular image, or image use rights.


I hope you will enjoy these wild encounters and always remember: nature conservation, like any good tradition, is not about preserving the ashes, but about passing on the fire.
