Award-winning wildlife and conservation photojournalist Sergio Pitamitz has French and Italian double citizenship. For over two decades he has documented wildlife and environmental issues, focusing in particular on African wildlife, big cats and polar regions. He is a National Geographic Image Collection contract photographer and National Geographic Expeditions Photographer. He is a Fellow of the iLCP International League of Conservation Photographers.
As a photojournalist, he is aware of the power of photography and storytelling for documenting real events so the applied digital post-processing – unless disclosed – never changes the content of the image and Sergio maintains ethical standards in the field to minimise altering the animal behaviour.
