Jürgen Borris

To be able to devote himself entirely to his passion nature photography, Jürgen Borris, born in 1955, once ended his professional career as a banker. Since that time he has been seeking intensive engagement with animal species and landscapes for longer periods of time, always cautious to move with restraint and with respect for the creatures in nature. With his unique and impressive images, he shares this respectful view of nature with the viewer. The behaviour and habitats of native birds and mammals form a focal point of Jürgen Borris‘s work. With his cautious nature photography he found his way to other European countries, in particular to Scandinavia, but also to the USA, e.g. to South Florida. As a protagonist in front of the camera, he participated in nature films of Norddeutscher Rundfunk. Borris is a member of the German Animal Photographers Society (GDT) and has been its president from 1999 to 2001.
