Marie-Claire Greve (1966) is a Dutch photographer who turned to photography in 2012 to be able to share her passion for nature and wildlife. After attending a basic course photography at the Fotoacademie in Amsterdam in order to better understand her camera, she went on to attend workshops run by leading photographer Jonathan Chritchley. She is co-founder of the Alliance for Nature (.org).
‘While being in nature I loose the sense of ‘photography rules’ and love to experiment with my camera. By choosing an unusual perspective I try to fool those to enlarged the experience of nature. My personal preference is to work with anything that moves such as water or animals and to work with mystical light, moonlight that creates the pastelly atmosphere I am looking for. If I manage to find the right abstraction I hope my work will transform those from looking to seen.’
Through her photography Marie-Claire Greve raises money for nature conservation projects.
‘Imagine if a picture can stimulate your awareness of how beautiful, strong and at the same time fragile nature actually is.’
She uses Nikon cameras and lenses.
