Wildlife Photography by Stefano Unterthiner

Stefano Unterthiner began serious photography at the age of 17, went on to study zoology, obtaining a Ph.D. from the University of Aberdeen, and then started his career as a professional photographer. One of his first assignment won him the prestigious "Mario Pastore" prize for best young environmental journalist. Stefano is the authors of five photographic books, he's a regular prize-winner in the international BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition, and his work is widely published in magazines worldwide such as: National Geographic, GEO, BBC Wildlife, Terre Sauvage, Animan, Airone.

Stefano travels regularly around the world in search of new subject for his photo stories. He specialises in telling an animal's life story, living in close contact with his chosen species for long period. Most of all, Stefano has a strong commitment to wildlife conservation and environmental issues, and he is particularly interested on human-nature interaction. In the 2004, Stefano received, for his work on endangered wildlife, the "Premio Nazionale di Ecologia Luigiano d'oro", an annual prize awarded to Italians for their conservation achievements. Since March 2007, Stefano is a member of the ILCP, the International League of Conservation Photographers.
