  1. I have been following this photographer from Malta, a country renown for being a black spot for birds, and I am simply amazed by man of his images. He strives to portray the beauty of birds, even the commonest sparrows! He has some amazing action shots too.

    • Really, come on he can’t hold a candle to some missing people like Joe McDonald, Art Morris, Andy Biggs, to name a few.

  2. I’d like to suggest the following names:
    Chris Johns
    Christian Ziegler
    Denis Huot
    Dereck and Beverley Joubert
    Florian Schultz
    Greg du Toit
    Igor Shpilenok
    Jari Peltomaeki
    Jayanth Sharma
    Jonathan Scott
    Mark Carwardine
    Ole Jorgen Liodden
    Sachin Rai
    Sandesh Kadur
    Thomas Peschak
    Tony Heald
    Vincent Munier
    Will Burrard-Lucas

  3. Abhijit is a regular visitor in Bandhavgarh National Park, where tiger density is one of the highest in the world. His photographs depicts theflora and fauna of the Bandhavgarh region.

  4. Amazing list of photographers you have listed here; quite exhaustive. It seems that Sargam Jain is another name that should find place here. He has captured very beautifully the wildlife found in India, especially in the desert regions of Rajasthan. Please follow his Flickr album and decide.

  5. Guys. Surprised you left Andy Biggs out of the mix. Probably one of the most inspiring African wildlife photographers going over the past 10+ years. Just sayin’

  6. Wow, there are some fabulous nature photographers listed here! I believe you overlooked one very talented photographer in Nathaniel Smalley. I’ve followed his work for a couple years now and he gets some really unique shots. Here is his website link for your review: http://www.nathanielsmalley.com/

  7. Speaking from a photography professionals point of view there’s a few glaring omissions on your “list” for sure, but the main two are:
    Uri Golman
    Martyn Colbeck

  8. Did you mean to omit lots of the underwater photographers? I suppose they don’t use too much lenscoat gear :-)
    But, Alex Mustard and Tom Peschak to name just two of a huge list of luminaries

  9. My three most favourite photographers whose work takes my breath away time and time again are :
    Chad Cocking
    Keith Connelly
    Marlon du Toit
    How humbling it is to see such passion and talent around our beautiful planet.

  10. Two amazing, professional wildlife photographers who should be included are Billy Dodson (www.savannaimages.com), and Michael North (www.michaelnorthimagery.com). Both of them have beautiful portfolios of African wildlife.

  11. Kevin has a very unique ability to capture images that “speak” to people. His patience and calmness has a direct influence on the animals he photographs. There seems to be a trust between the animal and the human. He continues to amaze all of us as he produces images of animals almost daily. We all wonder how he can find these moments. I truly feel he is one of the up and coming talents in the wildlife genre and will be a staple for a long time to come.

  12. Why is Chad Cocking not on this list ? He’s an amazing photographer and is always being featured in the National Geographic !

  13. I follow posts of many amazing photographers from South Africa, some whom you already have listed, who never fail to disappoint: Chad Cocking Wildlife Photography, Keith Connelly Photographics, and brothers Tristan & Grayson Dicks of Nyamazane Photography. All offer something uniquely theirs.

    Hi, I’m really fascinated by wildlife and landscape photographer Radomir Jakubowski!
