African Wildlife & Nature Photographer
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.
A selection of Vincent’s work is for sale as Limited Edition Fine Art photographic prints are on permanent display in a small gallery in Gaborone, the capital city of Botswana. Digital Images are also for sale on request.
Vincent has been a moderator of the Wildlife Gallery on the acclaimed naturephotographers.net image critique website for many years.
