Who We Are

YARON SCHMID, PHOTOGRAPHER

Veterinarian, Conservationist, Award Winner, Wildlife Photographer and Safari Leader.

As a veterinarian, I offer a special look into the eyes and souls of the animals I photograph. My ability to read and anticipate animal behavior allows me to catch "special moments" and give you a glimpse into their rich emotional lives and unique personalities.

Many of the animals I photograph are endangered. I hope that you will connect with them through my lens, love them as I do, and join me in the fight to help them. 

I lead African safaris, and specialize in East Africa. 
My guests get to experience Africa in a special and intimate way, mostly away from the crowds. My knowledge of animal behavior and the African wildlife, together with great spotting ability, makes a safari with me a rich and rewarding experience.

Some of my photographs are for sale. If you see something you like that isn't listed, please contact us.
