In Chile, the name Jean Paul de la Harpe has become synonymous with nature photography. While studying biology at Chile’s Catholic University he became interested in photography at the same time, so much so that he quit studying for a doctorate in ecology in 2002 to focus on nature photography full-time. He made the decision to make photography his medium for educating and building awareness about the need to conserve nature and biodiversity on the planet. His photography business Abtao offers photography expeditions, courses, and workshops. And a few years ago he started Chile Indomito, a digital magazine about the natural world in Chile.

Jean Paul’s photography has also been published in diverse magazines, calendars, and four books (with a new photography book focused on Patagonia due out later this year).
