    Egoitz Ikaza González

    Since he started in the world of nature photography at the age of seven, Egoitz Icaza (born in 1997) has accumulated on the other side of the viewfinder hundreds of species, landscapes and stories focused mainly on bird photography, although he never misses the opportunity to portray any animal species that crosses in front of his eyes and his camera.

    Through his images, Egoitz tries to show and highlight the importance of those species that live in our immediate environment, as a way of knowledge and appreciation of the natural spaces that surround us. However, at the age of 24, he has traveled to some of the most incredible and emblematic places on the planet, such as the African savannah, the Alps, Morocco…

    As he has grown up, Egoitz has been perfecting his technique, to the point of leaving aside the more documentary photography to pursue the goal of giving each image a distinctive fact, that something that can make the difference between what is an attractive image and another really shocking one.

    At the age of 20, he had the pleasure to start collaborating with the Olympus brand by testing their equipment. The result was so satisfactory that he decided to switch to Olympus. At the same time, he had the opportunity to be a speaker at different fairs and events related to nature tourism, both nationally and internationally, among which Montphoto is worth mentioning.
