PHOTOGRAPHY ADVENTURE VACATIONS

Photographer Guide

The World’s Most Creative and Inspiring Photo Adventure Vacations

JOHAN SIGGESSON

Wildlife, Nature and Travel Photographer

MALTA

Johan is a wildlife photographer from Sweden but residing in the small Mediterranean island of Malta. From an early age Johan was passionate about animals and the natural world. Before Animal Planet, Nat Geo Wild and the likes, he was always glued in front of the weekly nature program on Swedish state television. No matter if it was lions in Africa, wolves in Yellowstone or Polar bears in Svalbard, he practically grew up with Sir David Attenborough’s voice at the back of his head. With a degree in Digital Information Production and many years of experience in the web and graphic design industry, he feels that he has a good sense of the aesthetic part of photography. What works and what does not work.

From the moment he bought his first digital camera he was hooked. The creativity that is unleashed with instant feedback on the screen, variable ISO and more or less unlimited image capacity is something that really appeals to Johan. This, combined with a passion for animals, is a recipe for a wildlife photographer. Purely due to incompatibility between most brands Johan uses predominantly Nikon cameras and gear. We all know that the gear doesn’t make the photograph. When Johan is not out photographing or stuck in front of his Mac processing images, he enjoys a good meal or watching a game of soccer with friend and a cold beer.
