Cristo Pihlamäe, Estonia

2021 Sony World Photography Awards - Category Winner, Natural World & Wildlife, Open Competition


I was born on December 23, 1988 in Estonia. I started photography about 6 years ago when I bought my first camera. I have always enjoyed being in nature and I like to listen, to watch the changes around us and capturing everything nature has to offer me. Mostly I like to take pictures of animals and birds in the wild. I also like everything related to art. For example, drawing. I have always taken part in various photo contests and so far the Sony World Photograpy Awards' victory is the biggest of my life. I took my first pictures in my hometown Haapsalu. If I look back to that time, I have definitely grown a lot as a photographer and I will continue as well.
