    Oscar Díez

    Born in Madrid on July 22, 1973, since I was a child I have always been enthusiastic about animals and their world, but it wasn’t until 2002 that I started photographing them.

    It was during my first trip, which was to Kenya and until today I have not stopped photographing them, with an analog reflex. In April 2005 I bought my first digital camera and that’s when I really started to get satisfactory results from my work.

    My specialty and what I like the most are birds and then the high mountains, which has made me a versatile photographer, since I do not waste any opportunity that nature gives me to capture the best moments of wildlife and their habitats, specializing in photographic trips around the world, I have been traveling for over 10 years through all types of ecosystems.

    Totally self-taught, everything I know, I have learned in the field and nature. With the teachings of great photographers and now friends, and studying the behavior of birds, dedicating as much time as I can, I have achieved gratifying results for me. I think that going out into the field and getting into a hide” seeing everything without being seen by the environment around you, is one of the best feelings in life.

    Author of a book and awarded in many national and international nature photography contests.

    Member of AEFONA (Spanish Association of Nature Photographers), Member of FONAMAD (Association of Nature Photographers of Madrid).
