Bird Photos and Nature Photos
by Antti Below
I am 47 years old, living in Helsinki, Finland. I have been photographing nature (mainly birds) for 30 years. I started my birding 32 years ago in Helsinki. Birding directed me to study biology (animal ecology) in University of Helsinki and after graduating I started to work as a conservation biologist in Metsähallitus (Natural Heritages Services). I work mostly with conservation issues of protected areas on state owned land, planning the management and restoration of protected areas and the protection of animal species.
I am married and I have one daughter and one son.

Other nature photos than bird photos I have mainly taken in Finland.
My photos have been published in several bird magazines, weekly magazines, bird books, school books and nature/hunting books. My photos have been used also in net pages, calendars, advertisments and playing cards.
