A large part of his work is based on aerial images; thus, he aspires to bring a new perspective on the fauna we already know through traditional photography. These images provide us with a new approach to observe and document wildlife behavior from a fresh angle, revealing animals in their entirety and in the context of a larger habitat and landscape, in a way that has never been possible in the past.
“My biggest motivation for creating has always been nature, to be able to bring it to the centre of our lives and give those who cannot speak a voice.”
Florian is a curious, engaged, and caring individual who has committed his personal and professional life to sustainable environmental protection. Florian’s work is inspiring and motivating and presents an intimacy that showcases a deep relationship with the Polar Regions. Each of his photographs tells a story of the fragility of life on this planet.

The first edition of ESVBS is an independently produced pilot, explaining who we are, pointing the direction we want to go, and inviting others to support it.
We made it free for everyone to participate and attend it.
We created it in the middle of a pandemic and global recession, with closed borders and our humble resources, but most importantly with a lot of drive, joy, sweat and passion!
