Dick Klees, researcher, nature-photographer and illustrator, born in Bilthoven (1955) the Netherlands, has been fascinated by nature from his childhood. Nature was explored by ever expanding wanderings. As a boy he already knew that he wanted to become a 'rambler'. In the mean time, his work and life-style resembles this youth-ideal. After biology, Dick started with illustrating and photography. An ideal combination to frame nature. His work often has been the reason to cooperate with field researchers. Especially for Dick's interest in the mustelid family, he travelled the world. To do research and to cover subject related features. Dick's images are not only informative but from artistic high level too, proven by different awards. Along them a first price in the prestigious British Wildlife photographer of the year competition. His images, (illustrations and photos) are being found in numerous (international) books and publications.

Travel the World
Travelling is definitely something different then vacation, it is a necessary way of life for a nature photographer, who is interested in covering subjects beyond his backyard.
Just because scenery and species are bound to geographical or climatologic conditions, occurring on defined places at the globe. The only way to meet, is bringing them a visit in their own environment. That demands for transporting yourself to the right spot in the best available period.
You need timing and organization for a successful trip, besides a dozen other things, best summarized as good luck.
Wherever you go, any travel is an eye opener for your understanding of the surrounding world and enriches your life. That fuels the motivation someone needs to overcome the daily hassles what seems to be an integrated part of travelling.Besides almost all European countries we visited:
