Denis is a wildlife and nature photographer, filmmaker, editor and expedition guide from the small town of Daugavpils, in Latvia. In the relentless search of natural beauty, Denis has been traveling the globe, capturing and documenting the natural environment - in every weather and landscape extreme that this planet offers.

Ten years ago, he moved to Britain to continue his education, earning two degrees – one in Travel & Tourism and another in Photography. Denis now works year round in polar regions acting in a variety of roles, including photographer / videographer, zodiac driver and naturalist guiding positions. He enjoys life at sea and most of all sharing the wonders of the natural world in pictures, creating imagery that supports conservation and raises awareness. He loves to communicate his passion for nature through photography and is always happy to share his knowledge on video and photography with people of any skill level.

In his free time he loves to explore the world’s hidden gems with his camera and has a great passion for scuba diving. He is a qualified Dive Master and worked as a professional underwater photographer in Greece.
