Jean Paul De La Harpe Zubiaur
Jean Paul was born in Santiago, Chile. He is a biologist and a professional
photographer. From his childhood, he was fascinated by nature and
outdoor life. Since 2002 he has guided nature and photography
expeditions in many Chilean environments, from the dry Atacama desert to
the windy and cold Patagonia. He has spent the last 3 seasons in
Antarctica, as an expedition photographer, documenting the incredible
wildlife that lives there and the breathtaking landscapes.
Jean Paul has published books about Chilean Nature, participated in
documentaries and television programs, and his work has been requested
for magazines and media. His main goal with his photographic work is to
show the beauty and fragility of nature through images to create a
collective conscience about the importance of nature conservation. In
addition, he has collaborated with organizations dedicated to the
conservation of nature with his photographs.
Since 2019 Jean Paul is a Sony Alpha partner, working as a brand
ambassador in nature photography in latin America, spreading the
importance of photography in the knowledge and conservation of nature.
Nowadays he works extensively as a photography guide and teacher,
always giving maximum effort to ensure a unique experience of enjoyment
and learning inside Nature for others.
