The Art of Xavier Ortega
Born in Barcelona, Spain, Xavier Ortega studied graphic design and photography at Massana School of Art in Barcelona and also earned a degree in economics. Taking photographs began for him as a way of escaping life in the fast lane.
During trips to Kenya and Tanzania he had closeup encounters with the animals of Masai Mara and the Serengeti and became passionate about wildlife photography, especially in Africa. His great love of African wildlife sent him on journeys searching for ever more animal subjects and on to Namibia, Botswana, Zambia and then back to Kenya and Tanzania.
Ortega has an extenisve portfolio of African wildlife and has recently added sailing and polo classics to his range of subjects.
