Edwin Giesbers is a professional freelance nature photographer who lives in Nijmegen (the Netherlands).
Already during early childhood he has been exploring nature in his own residential environment. Already at the age of 16 he started combining his love for nature with photography. Since 2005 Edwin is a dedicated fulltime nature photographer.
Edwin is interested in a wide range of subjects in nature, varying from insects, plants, birds, and mammals to complete landscapes. In addition he focuses also on nature recreation.
Next to photography Edwin also creates complete stories (pictures and text) for several magazines. Of course his education at the “Fotovakschool” in Apeldoorn and his years of experience in the photo retail are of great help.
Worldwide his pictures have been awarded in several leading international photo competitions. Including first prices at the European Nature Photographer of the Year and Natures Best contest. Examples can be found at the award page. His work has been published in renowned magazines such as BBC Wildlife Magazine, National Geographic, Terre Sauvage and Camera Natura.
His work is represented bij Nature Picture Library (England), an international leading photo agency which has a partnership with Minden Pictures (US). Photo agency Foto Natura represents his work in The Netherlands.
Since 2009 Edwin has joined IEPA (International Environment Photographers Association). He also supports the work of Orangutan Outreach Netherlands with images and presentations.
One of his goals is to show his love for nature in his pictures. Yet another is to create respect and awareness about the importance of preserving nature.
