Oscar Dominguez is a professional wildlife and conservation photographer focused on endangered species and the Asian continent.
Having started his career photographing mountains, he has made ascents in the Pyrenees, the Alps, the Cordillera Blanca (Peru) and the Cordillera Real (Bolivia).
In the last years he has turned to documenting endangered species and their environments in the most pristine and wild places.
Interested in wildlife and it’s domain as well as the people who lives in it, Oscar considers of vital importance to collaborate with local natives and involve them in the protection of the species and their environment. Associating wildlife photography with the uncertainty that goes hand with hand with the search of the subjects in their environment and in remote locations, Oscar always tries to remain as long as possible within the wild, accomplishing that way to assimilate and absorb as much as possible the essence of every place he visits establishing strong ties with them and it’s inhabitants.
Fascinated with the Asian continent and it’s wildlife, Oscar has visited it many times, travelling to Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Nepal, Thailand and Vietnam. From a young age he has always been actively involved in wildlife preservation and his images can be found on ARKive, the ultimate multimedia guide to the world’s endangered species.
Oscar's work has been published in several newspapers and magazines, such as BBC Wildlife Magazine, The Guardian, New Scientist, NaturFoto, Viajes National Geographic, Descobrir Catalunya, Quercus among others and is represented by Tandem Stills + Motion.
In 2016 Oscar won the "Conservation photographer of the year" award by AEFONA (Spanish Nature Photographers Association) with their conservation photo story about little bustards in Catalonia (Spain).
Currently based in Barcelona.
