Petr Bambousek | Wildlife Photography | Blog o cestách za fotografií, fotografické technice a úpravách v počítači


Welcome to

I fell in love for Wildlife Photography during my 2002 trip to Costa Rica. Richness of the tropics fascinates me since that and during the time I realised many photography trips to tropical rainforests across the globe. Recently I focused to Borneo and Latin America where I visited Ecuador, Belize, Costa Rica and Panama many times. My goal is to create wide topic collection of rainforest biodiversity.

I hope you’ll enjoy my work.

Web gallery and Equipment

Feel free to browse my extensive web gallery sorted by many options. You can browse the pictures by particular Country, by Topics or by used Equipment. Currently I am working with Canon, but I used Nikon in the past. I traveled with many different bodies and lenses. At this time I wear in my Lowrepro Vertex 200 AW backpack full frame Canon EOS 6D and backup Canon EOS 7D Mark II. My pictures are taken with Canon EF 16-35mm/4 IS L, Canon EF 100mm/2.8 IS L and Canon EF 300mm/2.8 IS L lenses. I successfully use Canon 1,4x II and Canon 2x II Extenders and Canon 12mm Macro tube. Surprinsingly most of my pictures are handheld, otherwise I use Benro C2570T carbon tripod, Benro BH2 Gimbal head and PhotoClam ballhead.

Workshops and Tropical Rainforest Trips


I organised over 20 photography trips to the tropics during last years. I shared my experiences with esthetical tropical photography with more than 50 students during my trips and more than 200 at my local based lessons and workshops. Hundreds more used my comprehensive video tutorials dedicated to postprocess in Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop and Nik Collection, 4 hours each. Currently I am working on new one with postprocess described from original RAW to final results in JPG (for web presentation) and TIFF (for high quality printing), all based on 10 of my awarded and featured pictures.
