Hi, I’m Gustav Kiburg,I was born in 1968 in Rotterdam. Wildlife is my greatest passion, but I’m also interested in landscape and low-light photography. I travel throughout Europe to find the best sites for wildlife photography. Achieving the perfect photo takes me many hours as the preparation and site reconnaissance and the nature itself is often unpredictable, the available light plays a big role in the preparation and time. My personal slogan is ‘Bad weather is colour weather’. I am proud to have some of my images published in several magazines including Ringflash, Digital Camera, Photoworld and Natuurfoto (nature photo magazine). I’ve twice won the best photo on Dyxum an international Sony forum.
I enjoy meeting others of like mind, and regularly host lectures, exhibitions and demonstrations about wildlife photography in camera shops and public events. These events are often in Dutch or English, as I travel to the UK to share my passions for this subject.
I first joined the Sony Ambassador scheme in 2009 because I was proud to promote the quality of Sony camera’s and lenses. Having seen the technological advancement that Sony has continued to develop during this time. Together with the improvement in image quality, and now video, I am glad to have selected Sony from the start. I also support Sony Japan as my images have been chosen to feature in many Sony Corporation printed materials. This has been a great honour for me.
“Just over a month into my trip and I wonder how I’ve changed, if at all. Certainly the experiences I’ve had and things I’ve seen have shaped me in someway. Maybe it will not be seen for a number of years. This adventure isn’t about change but it seems to be an inevitability.”
