Sandra Bartocha

Sandra Bartocha is a German freelance photographer and author specialising in natural landscapes and plants. She specifically aims to create images that evoke an emotional response.

The beauty of nature and natural light is her principal source of inspiration. Sandra tries to capture nature artistically rather than documenting it, so she focuses on details, light, colours and moods and uses creative camera techniques.

Her pictures have been published in European magazines, books and calendars. She received prizes in numerous international competitions such as the Wildlife Photographer of the Year and International Photography Awards. Sandra was vice-president of the Society of German Nature Photographers (GDT) from 2007 to 2013 and is chief editor of GDT Forum Naturfotografie magazine. She was part of the photographic team on the pan-European Wild Wonders of Europe initiative.
