Our team


        My name is Emil Enchev.
    I was born in December 1973. I have     a Master’s degree in Veterinary     Medicine and have worked as a vet in a     zoo for 4 years.
    Photography has become my passion     for over fifteen years by now. In 2004     I completely turned my hobby into a job      and now I am a full-time professional nature photographer organizing tours and workshops in my beautiful country.

         I know where, when and how to do wildlife photography in Bulgaria. Important part of my strategy is having a great variety of hides, especially for bird photography.         

        What I like the most about my occupation is the fact that gives me a chance to be out in the nature and at same time have the opportunity to meet people with similar interests and share my experience with them.

        Through my work I am trying to find a way to devote the rest of my career to the preservation of wild nature.





        Andreas Lentfer is our representative for Germany
        
    Born in 1963 and grown up near Hamburg in the     northern part of Germany, Andreas developed his     interest for nature during his childhood. With that interest     more and more growing, he took up photography at the     age of 14 and soon tried to take his first pictures of birds     around the feeder in winter. Step by step he developed     his experience and his first own earned money went straight into camera equipment. A passion had started that never faded again.

         Since then, many wildlife photography tours took Andreas to interesting and sometimes very remote destinations in Europe, East Africa, South Africa, Asia and America. Important to him is, that besides trying to take great pictures of the beauties and wonders in nature, he also makes sure to enjoy those times, gaining intense experiences. That in mind, it’s essential for Andreas, that any action he takes out there in nature to get pictures, is happening with minimal disturbance for fauna and flora.         

        Recently, after almost 20 years working as an engineer in the Food industry, Andreas has decided to take up new challenges. Amongst others, he has decided to also become the German contact partner for Emil’s Wildlife Photography Tours in Bulgaria. His aim is to demonstrate, what fantastic treasures Bulgaria is holding for nature enthusiasts and to encourage people to go and visit this beautiful country.
