Wild Wonders of Europe commissioned Europe's leading nature photographers to document the rich biodiversity of the continent. Today, we highlight the work of Stefano Unterthiner.

Stefano Unterthiner travels regularly all over the world, together with his wife Stéphanie, to look for new topics for his photographic stories. He has specialised in the lives of animals, which involves spending long periods of time with them. His pictures regularly earn him prizes in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition and his work has been published by the leading international magazines, such as National Geographic.

For Wild Wonders of Europe he travelled to Poland to photograph bison, Greece to document Eleanora’s falcon and to Sweden to photograph cranes and swans in winter: “The mission I liked most was in Poland: I very much enjoyed the few moments I was able to be near to the bison herd deep in the forest... A very exciting experience. In Greece we spent 3 weeks in September, travelling between sunny and nice islands photographing the beautiful and rare Eleonora’s falcon: what more could I wish for? My mission with cranes and swans in Sweden, was probably the most productive and interesting from a point of view of producing images”.
