Yoram Shpirer

Growing up on a Kibbutz in Israel gave me the opportunity to become connected with nature at a very young age. At that time I followed wildlife learning and documenting their behavior using a P&S camera that I received from my parents. Today, my photographs are published by a variety of nature magazines and books both in Israel and around the world. I also give lectures on photography and nature preservation.
I completed my B.Sc. M.A. studies in "Fertility Improvement of Milking Cows", Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Faculty of Agriculture at Rehovot.
I also conducted research about The Parasite-Host Interrelation between the Great Spotted Cuckoo and the Hooded Crow, under the guidance of Professor Amotz Zehavi (Tel=Aviv University).

In addition to working as a ruminant nutritionist, cow milk productivity expert and barn management consultant, I am also a volunteer at the Israel Nature and National Parks Protection Authority. My main activity concerns protection of griffon vultures that are currently close to extinction in Israel. Within this framework I photograph most of the activity done around saving and protecting the griffon vultures in Israel. When time allows I also document other wildlife in its natural environment.

If you like a picture or gallery, please take the time to add a comment and let me know. Thanks!

Yours,
Yoram Shpirer
