Yves Adams (°1978) is a self-taught professional wildlife, landscape and environmental photographer, based in Belgium. He has been photographing more than 20 years and travelled all over Europe and other continents to encounter wild places.
His immense passion for nature started as a mere observation of wildlife and to be out there in the wild. Recording of this beauty only started later but quickly grew out as a passion to photograph nature in a challenge to surprise and convince people of hardly unknown outdoors spectacle.
During the first years of wandering around and after his studies as a landscape architect, Yves soon realized he just couldn’t hunt animals with his camera, without reading and understanding the habitat and landscapes he had to cross.
Photographing these unique sceneries started to become as important as finding the animals, and he soon grew out to become an experienced landscape-photographer, appreciating and respecting the weak environments, locally and far away.
