The following images of wild birds and animals in their natural
habitats are taken in various countries around the world. None of these photos
are of captive animals. All of the images on this page are copyright Christian
Artuso (all rights reserved). The majority are 35mm colour slides, which
unfortunately lose quality when scanned for on-screen viewing, with more recent
photos being digital (originals average 3 Mb in size).
you wish to use any of these photographs, please contact me at chartuso[no
spam]@gmail.com (remove the [no spam]). The price depends on the intended
usage and the resolution required. Some of these photographs already appear in
various magazines and books from around the world, so exclusive contracts are
not available. Many of these images can be donated to conservation agencies free
of charge, provided prior permission is obtained and I am credited as the photographer.
photographs are arranged on this site in the 10 galleries indicated on the left.
The first 9 galleries are of birds, arranged following Sibley and Monroe taxonomy.
Images within the galleries are arranged in alphabetical order of their common
names, typically using the naming conventions of the region where the species
was photographed. Simply click on the thumbnails to view larger images. The special
feature is an exposé of a particular species or habitat or behaviour
and is changed regularly. You can also visit my blog
to view some of my photo essays.
The images on these pages
represent a sample of my wildlife photography. I have many photographs of other
species not shown here (over 2800 species of birds). Please consult the following
bird species list or email me if you are looking for an
image of a particular species. Please be patient for the bird species list to
appear as it is a large file. I try to update this page as often as possible,
so the photographs displayed may change from time to time.
hope you enjoy these images!
