Jesús Mateos Martín

Jesús Mateos is a passionate about the nature and he is linked to it since his birth. He has been working as an amateur wildlife photographer since 1988. He has developed his work in Spain especially in the Extremadura region. During all these years he has been accumulating a large archive of images related to nature, fauna, flora, landscapes, archeology, ethnology, rural world, villages, etc.

He considers himself a naturalist rather than photographer. He is aware of the need for environmental conservation so he collaborates with environmental organizations actively, either personally or through his pictures.
