After 20 years in the business world, Markus Varesvuo turned his lifelong hobby of birdwatching and photography into full-time professional wildlife photography in 2005. His work is exclusively about birds, concentrating on the Western Palearctic species. The reason for narrowing the focus to Europe’s birds from the birds of the world is simple – no one lifetime is enough to capture the true essence of all the species. And that is what Markus wants to do; to dig ever deeper into the world of these winged creatures, by means of photography.rd in the category ‘Birds’. Markus has published several books, including Birds: Magic Moments, which was his first international bestseller in 2011.
