Oscar Díez Martinez

 

Born in Madrid on July 22, 1973. Since I can remember, I have always been astounded about animals and their world, but it was not until 2002 that I began to photograph them.

After going on safari to Kenya in my honeymoon and every single day, I realize I cannot stop photographing them. On April 2005 I bought my first digital camera, and it was then when I began to achieve a real success in my work.

Birds and then mountains are what I feel more attracted about and catching pictures of them is my specialty. The fact of not missing any possible opportunity nature offers me has turned me into an all-purpose photographer, as I always take advantage of the best moments of wildlife and their habitats to capture them.

Completely self-taught, nature and the countryside have been my tools to learn all I know. Teachings of great photographers, who now are friends, and spending most of my time studying the behavior of birds have let me achieve gratifying results for me. I think going out and get into a "hide" to observe everything without being seen by the environment around you, is one of those feelings in life that leaves you speechless.

Partner of AEFONA (Association spanish of nature Photographers), FONAMAD (Association of Nature Photographers of Madrid) and SEO (Spanish Society of Ornithology).
