Wild&Life Photography By Gil Hillel

About me

My name is Gil and I was born in the city of Haifa, Israel.

My interest in photography began when I was 20 years old. At that time, I bought my fist camera, which was a Nikon F60, 35mm film camera. At the beginning, I focused mainly on photography of people, especially portraits.

My passion to wildlife photography grew a few years later, when I started traveling in Israel. The beauty of nature easily caught my attention, and I was overwhelmed by the sights and the life of its creatures. Later on, I was especially attracted to photography of birds, which has been my main interest since. I then had a Nikon D70 digital camera, and used a Nikon 80-400mm AF lens for wildlife.

Since then I have been to Europe, Kenya, the United States, Chile, Argentina, and the Galapagos Islands. You will also find photos from these places in this site. Lately I began working with the Nikon D2X digital camera which enlarged the pleasure of the photography work.

Today, I am looking forward to continue photographing around the world and visit many magic places I havenít been yet.

I will be glad to get any comments about the material in the site and you are more then welcomed to contact me concerning any issue which can cross the mind. My full details are written in the contact section. 

Thanks and I hope youíll enjoy the photos. 

Sincerely,

Gil
