Ingo was born in 1968 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany and since 1992 he has worked as a freelance wildlife photographer. During childhood, he spent every single minute of his spare time outdoors in nature. At a very early age, he realized that photography could be a useful tool when applied to nature protection. Immediately after finishing school, he plunged himself into the adventurous life of professional photography. Since then, he has travelled around the globe developing in-depth coverage in which he portrays animals and their habitats over the course of several weeks. During the last few years most of his shooting time has been on assignment for GEO Germany. Ingo's objective with his imagery is to stir the emotions of his viewing audience and to lead them into the richness of nature.
Arndt's photographs are mainly published in international magazines including National Geographic and GEO. Arndt has received numerous awards for his photography. Several of his images were winners at the "Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition“ and the "European Wildlife Photographer of the Year". In 2005 and 2019 his work was awarded at the World Press Photo Contest, in 2006 Ingo received the German Award for Science Photography and in 2008 and 2012 the "GDT Fritz Poelking Award“. Ingo has published 20 book so far.
