Martin Steenhaut

Passionate about nature photography and with the utmost respect for his subjects, Martin Steenhaut is a renowned photographer from Belgium. He was born in Brussels and grew up in Antwerp.

His older brother shared his passion for observing and photographing wildlife. During his studies, photography became a great passion. Martin first became a professional photographer in the food and event industry. But the call of nature took over, so he decided to focus on wildlife photography.

His focus is mainly on mammals, birds and landscapes, always with the utmost respect for his subjects. “Photos are not trophies that you need to make at any cost. The popularity of wildlife photography puts a lot of pressure on nature sometimes. That is why avoiding disturbance is my golden rule.”

Martin shares his passion through lectures and exhibitions. He got awarded many times in international contests, among which the World Photographic Cup and the famous Montier en Der Festival in France. In 2017 Martin got rewarded with the European QEP label as a Qualified European Wildlife Photographer.

With Wildpix Travel, Martin also runs a travel agency that specialises in hide photography trips. Another way to share his passion with you and me.
