Jeff Nadler specializes in award-winning fine art wildlife and nature photography, with a special talent for exposing nature’s soul through black-&-white and color artistic imagery. With a passion of advocacy for the protection of endangered species, Jeff’s photographic mission is to create an emotional connection with his natural world subjects for the viewer and encourage active support of wildlife conservation. While being in the African bush is Jeff’s preferred activity, photographing and observing wildlife interactions of all types is his greatest pleasure, from wolves in Yellowstone to jaguars in Brazil to bears in Canada.
In 2016, Jeff was voted as Best in Photography by his fellow exhibitors at Laguna Art-A-Fair. Also in 2016, his photo, “Crocodile Line-up”, was chosen as a semi-finalist out of approximately 20,000 entries in the prestigious Nature’s Best Photography Windland Smith Rice International Awards. Other awards include the North America Nature Photography Association (NANPA) honoring “Hippo Smile” as one of the top ten photos of 2013; it was also a finalist and won an Honorable Mention in the National Wildlife Federation’s 2013 National Wildlife Photo Contest. NANPA recognized two more photos in 2014’s top 100 and an additional two in the top 250. Most recently, his image, “Swan Dive!”, was featured in the Nikonians Photography Awards 2017 online Competition Gallery. The Competition Gallery is a “highly curated group of images selected to showcase only the best photos from entrants” in the contest.
Jeff’s original work is available on both framed and unframed canvas, as well as archival photo paper. A percentage of the purchase price of all canvases or framed prints is donated to the Big Life Foundation to support their anti-poaching programs in East Africa.
