2015 – Radomir Jakubowski – Special Guest of the Festival

Radomir Jakubowski is a 28 years old business graduate and professional nature photographer. He is based in Saarland (Germany). At the age of 18 he became a fully-fledged member of GDT (Gesellschaft Deutscher Tierfotografen – Society of German Nature Photographers).
Working as a wildlife photographer allows Radomir to combine his fascination with nature together with his passion for photography. His – often very physically challenging – tours, travels and expeditions result in both photo stories that document his subjects, and creative images that depict a more sensitive, artistic approach. Radomir’s photos have been repeatedly acknowledged and honoured in international nature photography contests. Among others, he was awarded the Fritz Poelking Junior Award in 2011 and several of his images have won awards in the GDT European Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition.
Radomir’s photos and articles are regularly published in journals, catalogues and books all over Europe. He runs photography workshops in Germany, France, Belgium and Switzerland. Furthermore he is committed to supporting and promoting young photographers. He has been the head of the GDT Youth Group since 2012 and is a co-founder of the New Shoots Blog project. (www.newshootsblog.com). In 2013 his first book, a joint project with Sandra Bartocha and Werner Bollmann was published by Gallileo Design Verlag: “Die Fotoschule in Bildern: Naturfotografie” (“A pictorial Photo-School: Nature Photography”).
