About your local photographer

We are an initiative striving to preserve tropical reptiles and amphibians through tourism, photography, research, and education. Our goal is to create a passion for amphibians and reptiles among the greatest number of people in order to obtain the support needed to address the most urgent conservation challenges faced by this group of animals.

We count within us a staff of photographers, committed to their clients satisfaction and to support conservation in biodiverse areas.

Our team
An Ecuadorian–Venezuelan biologist, author, conservationist, and wildlife photographer and the president and research director of an institution co-founded in 2009 to preserve tropical reptiles and amphibians through tourism, photography, education, and scientific research. I obtained my biology degree from Pontificia Universidad Católica del Ecuador. I am the author of two books and 16 scientific articles. I have described 20 new species to science, saved 101 hectares of tropical forest in Ecuador, and my photographic work has been featured in National Geographic and the Discovery Channel.

A biologist and a wildlife conservation photojournalist from Ecuador. I am the CEO and Director of Photography at an institution co-founded in 2009 to preserve tropical reptiles and amphibians through tourism, photography, education, and research. I am author of two books and four scientific articles describing new species to science. My main goal is to use photography as a tool to promote environmental and cultural conservation. My photographic work has been published in many magazines, books, photo exhibitions and articles and my images are represented by Nature Picture Library. I am a member of the International League of Conservation Photographers (iLCP).

A Peruvian wildlife photographer and tour leader who has successfully led over a hundred tours and photo workshops since 2009. I obtained my degree from the Tourism School in Lima, where I also became fluent in English and German. However, most of my experience in the field comes from my seven-year work as a naturalist guide for the prestigious lodges of Rainforest Expeditions. At the moment, my work is focused on photographing nature for conservation and education purposes, and always with good humor.

A Venezuelan field biologist, wildlife photographer and tour leader based in Ecuador. As Director of Field Research, I organise and lead research expeditions as well as creating my signature bank of white background images of tropical amphibians and reptiles. I am co-author of one book and six scientific articles. I have described eight new species to science, contributed to the rediscovery of three stubfoot-toad species (genus Atelopus), and saved 101 hectares of tropical forest in Ecuador. I am the founder of EX-SITU, a white background animal picture bank that provides non-profits with stunning visual material to support their cause.
