“Zoo Animals”

Zoos, and with that also photography of wild animals in the zoo, are often a controversial subject. Admitted, it is much more exiting, and a bigger challenge, to photograph wild animals in their natural surroundings. And definitely also much more difficult, and only achievable for a few…
For those of us who cannot make far journeys and long safari’s on a regular basis, zoos are often the only place to observe, and photograph, these animals.
But those who think that making good pics of animals in zoos is an easy thing to do, they may be mistaken… Animals do not pose, they do not wait till your camera is ready, they are often too far away, or not visible all together. And making a good photo of animals in captivity, with as little as possible disturbing elements like bars, fences and reflections of glass, that’s a big challenge too!

In this calendar you will find some of my best zoo photo’s – I hope you will enjoy!

These photographs are made in

  1. Artis Amsterdam Zoo, the Netherlands
  2. Diergaarde Blijdorp, Rotterdam, the Netherlands
  3. Planckendael zoo, Mechelen, Belgium
