Karin De Winter and Jo Van Rossem have developed a true passion for travel- and nature photography over the last twelve years or so. Before that, they used to photograph to purely registrate and document their travels. However everything changed in 2007 when visiting Namibia for the first time, when they were blown away by its wildlife and unique natural landscapes.
Selfstudy and practice became the mainstay of their development as nature and culture photographers. Creating compelling images that they hope will not leave people untouched is the main goal. In that way they want to raise awareness and contribute to protection and conservation. This is essential for Karin and Jo who in their free time operate as a husband and wife photographers team.
Apart from deserts, Africa, Asia, and the polar regions, they are also deeply fascinated by Europe’s nature, and the vanishing cultures and traditions around the world.
