Landscape & Birds photography workshops

Since I was young, I learned to enjoy and appreciate the wonderful and diverse landscapes and wildlife my country of origin had to offer. To further my understanding of the natural world, I chose to study biology at the University.

I am adore the endless complexity of the natural world! Observant and concerned eye can witness it in the shape of butterfly wing, beautiful structure of snowflake or Barn owl noiseless hovering. I always try to understand, commemorate and convey my experiences of Natural world and its wild inhabitants to others. Hope you'll enjoy your visit to my world of wild and beautiful.

The passion for Nature has led me to specialize in Landscapes and Birds photography. In the autumn and spring hundreds millions of birds pass through the Israeli skies on their way south (from Europe to Africa), at autumn and the opposite way at spring. A lot of them spend a winter here. This provides a remarkable opportunity for capturing these elegant creatures in all their splendor.

Some of the images you see here featured internationally in many magazines including: National Geographic, BBC Wildlife, Practical Photographer and were awarded in national and international photography contests, among them in?Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2010?.

Camera Gear I use

This is definitely the most frequent question I asked by the visitors of this site and others. Personally I don't think this matter is of first importance for success in nature photography. Much more important is to spend a lot of time with your gear in the field, to be familiar with it and to know it's advantages and weaknesses.

These days I use:
Canon 5D MKIII
Canon 5D MKII
2 canon film bodies EOS 33
Canon 500mm f/4 L IS lens
Canon 17-40 f/4 L lens
Canon 70-200 f/4 L lens
Canon 24mm f/2.8 lens
Sigma 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye Lens
Canon x1.4 Teleconverter
Canon x2 Teleconverter
