Photographer at NatGeo and Leica Ambassador, the Netherlands
Dutch photographer Jasper Doest creates visual stories that explore the relationship between humankind and nature and is a contributing photographer to National Geographic Magazine. Having majored in ecology, Doest knows human life depends on everything our planet has to offer, yet he recognizes the unsustainable nature of the current human patterns of consumption.
In an era where the impact of human activity on the environment is becoming increasingly apparent, Doest uses his photography to inspire us all to appreciate the wonder of our natural world and take steps towards its preservation.
As a true believer in the power of photography to initiate change, Doest is an International League of Conservation Photographers senior fellow and a World Wildlife Fund ambassador. His accolades include four World Press Photo Awards and in 2023 he was named Environmental Photographer of the Year by the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation.
