Biography

Isak Pretorius is a specialist wildlife photographic guide from South Africa. His discovery of nature's special moments at a young age shaped his aspirations of today: to showcase the beauty of his continent's natural wonders in a creative way. His bird and wildlife images have won multiple awards. His preferred genre of fine art bird photography is easily recognisable by his authentic style, simplistic design and technical skill.

Isak's passion for nature is fuelled by the reminiscence of a classic Africa and his aim is to create conservation awareness for his continent's natural wonders. He is not only focusing his attention on photographic assignments throughout the African continent, but also on offering private photographic safaris with avid amateur and professional photographers. He has taken a keen interest in educating photographers about their surroundings as well as teaching them the art of photography.
