Sandra Bartocha

Sandra Bartocha is a German freelance photographer and author specialising in natural landscapes and plants, with the specific aim of creating images that evoke an emotional response.

The beauty of nature and the beauty of natural light is a great source of inspiration to Sandra. She tries to photograph nature in an artistic way rather than trying to document it, focusing on details, light, colours and moods and using creative camera techniques to capture the beauty of a scene in the best way.

Her pictures have been published in European magazines, books and calendars, and she has received prizes in numerous international competitions – including 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 the magazine GDT Forum Naturfotografie.

She was one of the photographic team on the pan-European Wild Wonders of Europe initiative. Currently, she is working on a long-term project about the north of Europe – LYS.
