My name is Jan Pedersen, born 1957 in Denmark, and a Swedish photographer, author and world traveler. I am specially dedicated to conservation of rainforests and the nature of Madagascar and I have been an Olympus visionary ambassador since 2017.
I have been a member of the Swedish Nature Photographers association /N since 2014 and have been internationally awarded as a photographer.
My first book "In the Deserts of Arabia" was selected by the World Wildlife Fund WWF for the ” Pandabok 2000”. My third book "Birdsong" is Sweden's best selling nature book ever. Nearly 2 million copies have been sold in nine languages. Totally 15 books/titles are published until now - several of them being Swedish and international bestsellers.
I have written numerous articles for daily and professional magazines on photography and nature. Over the years I have enjoyed touring extensively as a speaker for a wide audience. Now I am more and more teaching photography and nature photography and this has evolved through several decades.
