With a PhD in Zoology, Stefano Unterthiner isn’t just any ordinary animal photographer. In fact, his passion for telling an animal’s story takes him around the globe. As a skilled photojournalist, he waits for precise moments, often times spending long periods in the field in complete solitude.
You’ve probably seen Stefano’s photos but never have known it, he’s a regular contributor to National Geographic.
“I like nature photography mainly because it gives me the possibility to stay out in the wild. Since I was a child, I loved to spend time in nature; I grew up in a small mountain village, where I learned how much fun it can be to discover the nature around your home. Moreover, I am a storyteller (that doesn't mean I talk too much….): I like the possibility to tell "stories" of wild animals through my images. That's what I can do with nature photography.” – Stefano Unterthiner
