Robert Haasmann - Photographer / Traveler / Nature Enthusiast
Robert is a full time photographer from Salzburg, Austria. His photography is all about Travel, Landscape and Wildlife. The deep passion for photography grew along with his desire to travel our wonderful planet. In his early years Robert roamed the vast wilderness of northern Scandinavia. It was then when he started to value the comfort of his sleeping bag along with a great view out of his tent over any five star hotel room. The far north has become a constant companion throughout Roberts photographic journey and his camera has carried him to some of the most remote areas. For two summers Robert traveled in Alaska and Canada, he stood on the edge of the Ice Cape in Greenland and came back to Scandinavia dozens of times.
Beside traveling the North, he traveled all over Europe, some lower parts of North America and visited the last mountain gorillas in Africa. His untamed curiosity made him explore some of the most hidden corners of his Austrian home.
In recent years he used his camera as the tool to promote conservation. Raising awareness for the importance of biodiversity and showing the beauty of untouched wilderness has become a main aim of his work.
Currently, his work has a strong focus on the mountains, valleys and forests of the Alps - Europe's wild heart. It's about the return of big predators to the areas where they were once exterminated and it's about the protection of the last wild places in Austria's alps.
He is the Co-Founder of "Die Naturfotowerkstatt" - a company specialized in Photography Workshops for small groups. As a Trainer for photography he passes along his knowledge at some of the most beautiful spots in Austria, Germany and Norway.
Robert is a photo-travel host for "ARR Natur und Kulturreisen". Together they offer destinations like Lapland, Norway, Iceland, Greenland, Alaska, Ireland and many more.
He is a member of the "Association for Wildlife and Nature Photography Austria - VTNÖ" and became the President of the VTNÖ in 2012.
