Married to Sharona, and father to Shahar and Maayan, I have been passionate about wildlife , particularly birds and conservation all my life. I first became aware of birds at the age of eight, spending much of my childhood exploring nature just outside my backyard.
I was fascinated by birds, and especially (as many kids are) with birds of prey. I remember sending letters to Har Gilo center for the study of birds of prey, eagerly waiting their response – who never failed to arrive. letters packed with beautiful photographs which inspired my imagination and fuel my love for birds.
Nature conservation and especially the protection of birds have always been close to my heart. I began birds photography 13 years ago, and 9 years ago founded the Israeli Nature Photography Association. The Association, a non profit organization was founded to promote nature photography in Israel, to help conserve and preserve the diverse natural ecosystems, to play an active role in Conservation Projects in Israel and to educate others interested in nature and wildlife photography.
For us, it is a privilege and an honor to take part in Champions of the Flyway.
