“With my camera in hand, and new adventures ahead of me, I’m filled with motivation to share my life’s passion with you!”

Piet van den Bemd

Expedition & Photography Guide

During Piet’s childhood, he developed an intense fascination for nature and wildlife. Guided by his parents, he travelled to many different continents, experienced other cultures and became inspired by the wildlife he witnessed outside of his home country in the Netherlands.

Growing up with a father who was a professional photographer, Piet received his first camera at the age of 16 which cemented the path ahead of him into photography.

Inspired by the beauty, freedom and pure wilderness of the North, Piet is driven to share this through photography and create awareness and interest in this fragile environment. For him, it is important to keep moving forward to secure and conserve the future of the remaining “untouched” places in the world.

For the last few years, he’s travelled for over 280 days a year, mostly in polar regions. Working as a photo guide and exploring new places, he enjoys sharing knowledge and passion with his guests.
