Thanks for showing interest in my bird photos. The idea behind the webpage is both  to show the bird species that occurs in Europe, and to provide bird photos for various commercial use. It’s the intention to show the different species in as many plumages, poses and situations as possibly, in a way that also ornithologists, artists and taxidermists can find inspiration and help here for their work here.

This webpage contains one of the larger collections of bird photos on the web.  Currently there is over 100,000 images representing more than 700 species and many subspecies. A few photos of landscapes and animals are also represented.

The pictures has been optimized to be shown on the internet, and therefore will often be a cropped version of the original. I normally don’t use digital manipulation, and only use smaller corrections in Photoshop. If an image has been digitally manipulated, it's marked with a (DC) for "Digital Composition".

Almost all photos on this site show birds in the wild. A few photos from captivity has been included to illustrate the specie. Those photos has been marked with a (C) for "Captive".

My pictures can be acquired as prints, or as Tiff and JPG-files for publication. Newer photos has been taken with 10-21mp digital SLR cameras (Canon 1D Mark III,IV and 5DIII). This site is not updated with all my bird photos, so if you are looking for something special, do not hesitate to contact me.
