I breath it,  dream of it, think about it and see it every day. I hope you can relate. Photography is a way of life, it’s a matter of perspective and vision which improves every scene and scenario.

In my photos, I try to reflect the ordinary in a special way. A way that will allow others to see the world as an amazing place. I love wildlife and nature and I’m working constantly to raise awareness for conservation of the endangered environments and animals.

I aspire to pass my knowledge on to as many people as possible. This is the reason I founded a photography school, with 20,000 graduates so far. In addition, I’m the editor in chief of Composition Magazine, an inspiring photography magazine featuring the worlds’ top photographers. Since promoting the photographic community is very important to me, I initiated and I’m hosting Israel’s photography conventions. I am performing many public speakings on photography and wildlife, so you’re welcome to check it out and make a reservation.

I lead photography expeditions and workshops around the world with Phototeva to many unique and fascinating destinations while promoting the same values and ethics I strive to perfect.

 

Yours,
Roie Galitz
