Heidi and Hans-Jurgen Koch (50) More files...
The photographers have a long-time experience in working on very different animal topics and in the realization of extensive and challenging projects around the world. Most of the time they are shooting on assignment, but they do this in a pretty independent way. Heidi & Hans-Jurgen handle the complete production, from the first idea to the final exposure, including research, location scouting, finding the right animals, creative collaboration with scientists and breeders, and a precise planning with the competence to work spontaneously.

Over the years the couple has created an extraordinary body of work. Whether it's wildlife or domestic animals, the studio or the field, reportage or illustration, business meets passion.

Photographers Credo: "However we all want to see animals, one thing is for sure, animals are on the far side anyway - we only picture them.

Heidi & Hans-Jurgen made their home in Freiburg, Germany.
