Theo’s World – Imagining The Image

His heart is set on adventure and his mind on conservation. Theo Allofs uses photography as a tool to protect species and habitats.“

I have loved adventure, wild animals and being in nature since I was a teenager. For the past 20 years my job as a wildlife photographer gave me the means to spend up to eight months per year in the last wild places on Earth. Part of my work is dedicated to conservation issues and the protection of endangered animals and habitats.”
