Alex Saberi is a National Geographic photographer from London. He began photography as a hobby by mainly taking photos of Richmond Park and has had a photo book of the park published in 2012. Prints can be purchased on his print store www.prints.alexsaberi.com. Alternatively you can visit Alex at Duckpond market in Heron square, Richmond most Sundays from 11-5pm.
The second edition of Richmond park is now available for pre-order on the Waterstones’s website. With over 90% new photos, this book is the quintessential book about Richmond park.
The park was the perfect place to practice his photography skills which he went onto use on his photo trips around the world. Most recently he has been spending his time photographing the beaches, jungles and wildlife of Ubatuba in Brazil. Alex has self published this book and it is available on Blurb.com. But most recently this book has been professionally published in Brazil and copies are available to buy directly from me in the UK, Europe and US, or from Brazil. Please email me using the contact form on this page. Alternatively if you are in Ubatuba, this book can be purchased in Nobel bookstore in central Ubatuba.
He has appeared in many digital camera magazines and publications. As well as this Alex has won several photography competitions, from winning the Environmental Protection Agency’s wildlife competition, to winning on several worldwide online competition websites. He came second in Landscape photographer of the year with his photo “One man and his Dog”, and appeared several times in both the British wildlife photographer of the year books and landscape photographer of the year books.
He has also appeared much of the national press including Daily Mail, Metro, Evening Standard, The Times, The Sun, The Telegraph with his year in Richmond Park collection. He also appeared in the November edition of the national geographic and is a National Geographic exclusive artist.

I currently am using the brilliant Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Camera. This has a newly redesigned autofocus system as well as a faster shutter speed. So now as well as brilliant low light capabilities and quality it has the tools for proper wildlife photography.
I currently use, as of end 2013, the amazing Canon 200-400mm f4 lens. This lens just amazes me. So versatile and the sharpness and image quality are top notch. My other zoom I use for larger and closer wildlife shots is the super sharp Canon EF 70-200mm f2.8 L IS II USM Lens. I used to use the Canon EF 100-400mm f4.5-5.6L IS Zoom Lens for wildlife shots combined with Kenko 1.4X Teleconverter for Canon, and it was certainly an easier job carry this lens on trips.
For landscape, street and general purpose I like the Canon 24-70mm 2.8 L II Lens
and the Canon EF 14mm f/2.8 II L USM Lens, along with the Manfrotto MT055CXPRO3 Carbon Fibre Tripod and Manfrotto XPRO Ball Head with 200PL Plate. Filters – I use the Lee Foundation Kit with Lee ND Grad filters.
I just recently switched my website hosting company from a rather slow 123-reg.co.uk to the brilliant www.siteground.com. I had been very unhappy with the speeds of my site and decided it was time to investigate a better solution. After reading many articles on hosting companys including this article.
