"Through photography, I try to show the beauty, fragility and ephemerality of wildlife."
Francis De Andrés. Born in Palma de Mallorca, Balearic Islands, Spain.
Graduate in Economics and Master in Business Administration and Management.
After 28 years working in Financial Markets and Wealth Management, in 2021 I decided to turn my personal life around and dedicate myself to my two great passions, my family and nature photography. Since then I have been working professionally as a freelance photographer.
I collaborate in advising Funds and Foundations on contributions to charitable causes in organizations whose sustainability is based on the care of the environment and endangered wildlife.
I also collaborate with several organizations dedicated in nature conservation, as well as with books, magazines and different publications. Collaborations in television and radio programs. Different exhibitions: Fine Art, Festimage, etc.
