There is a society or association for wildlife and nature photography in almost every European country. In Germany this is the Society of German Nature Photographers (Gesellschaft Deutscher Tierfotografen e.V. – GDT), a registered non-profit organisation since 1971 and one of the world‘s largest nature photography associations. In addition to members from Germany, Europe and overseas, numerous sponsors from the photographic industry including many well-known camera manufacturers, specialist suppliers in nature photography, publishers and agencies, support the goals and the work of the GDT by their sponsor membership. The GDT‘s 15 regional groups and the group of young photographers meet regularly several times during the year for slide shows, the exchange of information and experience and to socialize and talk with people of the same interest. Guests are very welcome!
