Solvin Zankl has worked as a photographer since completing his masters in marine biology, undertaking wildlife photographic assignments all over the world. His growing fascination for the element water led him to expand his work throughout different coastal environments. Since 1998 Solvin Zankl has been working as a professional photographer, specialized in producing wildlife stories in different parts of the world. He always tries to catch the behaviour and the typical character of his subject from his personal view. Solvin is noted for getting a fresh new look on small or widely unnoticed animals. His work has contributed to many conservation campaigns, for example the protection of the Golden Lion Tamarin. His work has been internationally published in magazines including GEO, National Geographic Magazine, Natural History Magazine and BBC Wildlife, and he received the German Award for Science Photography and the Fritz Polking Award. He has published a number of books, the latest being Wildnis Eiche about the Oak tree as a microcosm of life and Ozeane, dealing with ocean life in all latitudes and depths, both published by Frederking and Thaler.
