In 1998 Heinrich van den Berg left his profession as a civil engineer to become a full-time wildlife photographer. Since then he has travelled the world photographing wildlife, culture and adventure sport with a uniquely artistic eye. In his bid to 'tell a story in every picture', he has climbed icy volcanoes in Argentina and Chile, tracked endangered mountain gorillas in Rwanda, searched for rare chameleons in Madagascar, wandered through the sacred temples of Cambodia, and walked the steamy forests of Borneo and Sumatra to photograph the elusive orangutan. He has photographed extensively in Southern Africa, where he lives, capturing on film the mysterious leopard in Kruger National Park, the desert elephant in Namibia's Kaokoland, and the captivating birdlife of Botswana. He was the first photographer to win the Eric Hoskings Award of the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year for two consecutive years.
