Marie- Claire Greve

nature photographer (1966)

Marie-Claire: “I consciously choose to present nature in a beautiful way. In the hope that people will realise we need to be careful with this splendour. By selecting a surprising perspective, I derail the audience to expand the natural experience. My personal preference is documenting movement and searching for abstraction. In this way, I attempt to capture the ingredients of nature in such a way as to spark wonderment and pull individuals from looking to seeing.”

Marie-Claire uses full frame Nikon cameras and shoots her photos in ‘RAW’. She does not utilise drones or other remote techniques and is not a fan of ‘photoshopping’. Her ‘Birdseye’ series were shot from a helicopter, sitting in the open doorway. Several works from this series are featured throughout the site and in the Beaumont Capital offices.

Art expert Job Ubbens about Marie-Claire
Job Ubbens: “…We see unique angles, we see bold compositions, we note a phenomenal feeling for ambience and for the perfect moment… These are quality photos with a lasting impression, photos that you continue to look back on after seeing them once, moving photos. They take you on a journey, true conversation pieces!”

Alliance for Nature
Marie-Claire is one of the initiators of the ‘Alliance for Nature’. The net proceeds of her photos go to the ‘Alliance’ and other specific nature conservation and management projects.
