Do you like animals and nature?
Would you like to see some of the best
of animals in their
natural environment? If you answered "yes" to these
questions, or even if you did not, then you do not want to miss
the images in the Profotos portfolio of Nigel Dennis. Nigel's
images will move your heart as being some of the finest renditions
of natural wildlife in the world.
Photographing wild animals as those in Nigel's portfolio,
is a difficult field to master even while the animas are in captivity.
The amazing thing about Nigel's wildlife images is the fact that
they were all made in the wild! These animals were photographed
in their natural habitat, in the bush of Africa. It is no small
wonder why Nigel's stock images have been sought after by the
likes of international publishers, including: National Geographic,
Time and Barnes and Noble.
Nigel's work with animal and nature photography is definitely
at the top of the photographic world. Our staff enjoyed every
image in Nigel's portfolio of intimate wildlife and nature images
and we believe that you will as well. This is a selection from
the portfolio of one of the world's best wildlife and nature
photographers. This is: Nigel Dennis!,Born in England in 1953, Nigel Dennis developed a deep interest in the natural world from an early age. First finding expression in the form of painting nature subjects, he also became interested in photography just over twenty years ago. Living in England at the time, his first projects included photographing red deer and the shy nocturnal European badger. For the badger photography he spent over forty nights photographing whilst still managing to hold down a busy day job. Nature photography soon overtook painting as a means of expressing his passion for the natural world and from the early eighties his work began to be published in books and magazines.
He moved to Africa in 1985 with a view to making wildlife photography a full time profession. During his first few years in Africa he continued with his previous career in sales and marketing, but still spent about one hundred days a year photographing by utilising all his annual holidays and weekends. Eventually having built up a sufficient stock of wildlife images he launched into the rather precarious occupation of freelance wildlife photographer in 1991. Since then he and his wife Wendy camp in the African bush for up to nine months each year. Although they work mainly in South Africa they also photograph regularly in Namibia and have visited Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Madagascar.
Nigel Dennis photographs all natural subjects including reptiles, insects, flora and landscapes but tends to concentrate primarily on African animals and birds. His work is marketed by fifteen stock photo agencies and has been published world-wide in over twenty five countries. He also runs his own photo library supplying images to the publishing and advertising industries, and currently has over 40,000 transparencies on file. He does not take on commercial or advertising assignments and works primarily on book and magazine projects. Nigel Dennis has had twelve wildlife coffee table books published to date.
