Lovers of animal photography and fine art won’t fail to notice Marina Cano’s photographs. Marina skillfully captures those perfect Hallmark moments of the wildlife kingdom.
Nikolai Zinoviev’s love for wildlife translates into his beautiful high resolution photos. Braving the dangers Nikolai once lived 40 days in the wild photographing Kamchatka’s nature and wildlife. His photos of brown bears stole our hearts, will your heart be stolen too?
If you love the feathered, winged and endothermic creatures of the world — birds, then don’t miss photos by Axel Hildebrandt. Birds are his specialty and he just might be nearing in to capture all 10,000 avian species out there.
Had a hard week and wanting to de-stress? Look no further, indulge in wildlife photos of Hristo Peshev. Captured at the mountainous and wetland regions of Bulgaria these photos are bound to share their sense of peace and tranquility with you.
Big cats, hyenas, water buffalo, hippos, zebras, Marc’s portfolio has got it all. There is no need to wait for a vacation, take a trip to Africa right now. Be warned, as in real life safaris some imagery is not for the faint of heart.
If you are lusting for more African wildlife we’d like to recommend photos by Bridgena Barnard. What makes her photos unique are great action scenarios and unusual angles that show us the moments which could have been missed by an untrained eye.
Our favourite photos by Buck Shreck are photos of North American wildlife, they feel really close to home. Take a look at his profile and decide for yourself which photos you like best, will it be a close-up of bold eagle, bear fishing for salmon, silhouette of a cheetah or a swimming hippo?
Edwin’s photos are so good that at times they feel too good to be true. We know it’s impossible to stage such scenes as a baby deer cradling by his mom’s side or an eagle triumphing while atop his pray, but you can’t blame us for having doubts. Those photos look simply perfect! Take a look and judge for yourself.
Yves Adams is no stranger to bat caves, following birds for days and freezing in hopes to get that one good photo. His dedication pays off with stunning and remarkable photos. Enjoy his fine art wildlife photos and appreciate special moments captured.
We hope you enjoyed our roundup! This is just the first post and there are many more wildlife photographers whom we can’t wait to recommend to you. Come back next Friday for more incredible photographers to follow and get inspired by. Thanks for reading :)
