Life on White Photos

The stock photos (the cute polar bear) I use in illo Books’ marketing are from the series “Life on White” by Belgian photographer Erich Isselee. With ethical considerations in mind, I did my research before using these pics. Wild animals being dragged into a studio doesn’t cut the mustard for me.

I was pleased by what I discovered. Isselee takes a portable “studio” to the animals, patiently capturing them in their own habitats - in the wild, at conservation centres or sanctuaries. The results are amazing. He’s snapped more than 450 species, documenting many endangered animals along the way. Best of all, a percentage of his income goes towards supporting wildlife sanctuaries and animal charities. Check out an article on Isselee here.
