Vincent Grafhorst (50) More files...
Wildly passionate about the beauty of the wild arid southern African landscapes and its animals, Vincent has an inherent drive to create inspirational works of art that evoke emotions and command respect for nature. Perhaps in the belief that sharing the unparalleled beauty of the wild through his photographs will help create the awareness and appreciation of our fragile natural world and its last wild places, that is so desperately needed to help conserve it.

Vincent Grafhorst was born in the Netherlands, but after his studies (Civil Engineering and Construction Management) in the Netherlands and the UK he moved to South Africa in 1998 in search of some adventure. By chance he ended up in Botswana and still lives there today.

Only in 2005, however, he became more serious about his photography and realized that southern Africa with its abundant wildlife and breath-taking scenery is a heaven for nature photographers. His early inspiration came from Frans Lanting, Nigel Dennis, Richard du Toit and, most of all, from nature itself. Vincent is now an award-winning and published nature photographer himself.
