To Jasper Doest, photography is always about emotion. Whether it’s a travel documentary in Mexico or Poland, a photograph of a grebe in his home country The Netherlands, or an image series about arctic foxes on Svalbard: it must be an expressive image, an image that should touch its viewers.

Jasper brings nature, anywhere in the world, closer. Close to him, close to others. He explains: “I owe a lot to the natural world and photography is my way to give something back.”

To him, nothing beats sharing his passion: in lectures, in interviews, in workshops, but mostly through his photographs that convey a story. His work has received multiple awards; international journals and books, such as National Geographic Magazine and BBC Wildlife Magazine, are publishing his photographs and articles. He also created several travel and news features for National Geographic Traveler and national newspapers.
