Photography: Passion Comes First

Marsel van Oosten has been working as a successful advertising art director, and as a way to escape the rushed deadlines and pressure, he began photographing as a hobby. Throughout the years, he had the opportunity to travel to the Serengeti to take beautiful pictures of animals, and that fueled his passion for this field even more. Five years later, Oosten makes the big decision to change his career for “the precarious life of a nature photographer, a move that demands unyielding devotion and commitment.” [1]
