Marsel van Oosten is a professional nature photographer from The Netherlands, with a background in advertising and graphic design.
Marsel is a nature lover with a deep concern for the natural world. Successful conservation starts with awareness, and he hopes that his images will make people aware that Mother Earth needs our protection and inspire them to take action.
In his work he tries to simplify, to get rid of the extraneous: Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
His images have won many awards around the globe, and he is the world’s only nature photographer to have won the Grand Slam: the grand titles Wildlife Photographer of the Year, International Nature Photographer of the Year, and Travel Photographer of the Year.
His images are featured in galleries and museums, are used worldwide in advertising and design, and he is a regular contributor to National Geographic. He is also a Nikon brand ambassador, a death metal connoisseur, and a recovering Nutella addict.
Marsel currently lives in South Africa with producer Daniella Sibbing.
