An Interview with Heike Odermatt by Beata Moore
Heike Odermatt is a semi-professional photographer, originally from Germany, who lives in The Netherlands. She is well known for her beautifully composed landscapes, wildlife images as well as sensitively balanced natural abstracts. Since her early childhood she hoped to photograph landscapes and wild animals. Years after she got her first analog camera, she decided in 2002 to pursue nature photography. For a few years she was restricted with her photography due to a serious illness, but currently Heike is working on new approaches to allow her to re-start her photographic activities. Her work has been awarded in several international competitions, among them, Wildlife Photographer of the Year (BBC) and European Wildlife Photographer of the Year (ENJ). Heike is a member of the Nature Photographers Guild (NFG) and the Society of German Nature Photographers (GDT). read more.
