My name is Jan-Joost Snijders, born on the 12th of April 1987 in Maastricht, the Netherlands. I grew up in a warm family with a father who has always been a fanatical photographer. So it was just a matter of time until i bought my own camera. In that same time I also fell in love with travelling around the globe. This combination made me an enthusiastic photographer even more.
In 2015 we visited South Africa for the first time. We immediately fell in love with this country. The people, its nature, the beautiful remote accommodations and of course the animals made us instantly hooked. During these trips I found out I just really love to sit, watch and photograph wild animals. Additionally I experienced that it is not just taking a picture of an animal, it is capturing that moment in which an animal shows you its innerself. Those moments make me humble as a human being and proud to be a photographer.
Besides wildlife I am also interested in the more remote and rough landscapes in this world. I loved visiting the beautiful nature of Norway, Iceland, Namibia and many more. Experiencing the extreme conditions and capturing that feeling or sight makes these sceneries so special.
I hope you enjoy my pictures. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
