Henrik Spranz – software developer in his day job – has been shooting images since 2006. His initial interests lay in travel photography, although these days you’ll find him focusing more on the small world and wildlife photography.Nick Smith for Outdoor Photography magazine:”There’s something magical about Henrik Spranz’s photography. Although deeply rooted in the hyper-real world of natural history and landscape, his work bears none of the hallmarks of scientific illustration or even animal portraiture. His world is a dream-like state of whimsical and wispy perfection, pastel colours and cheeky woodland creatures. In fact, it’s fair to say that the Spranz portfolio has more in common with Grimm’s Fairy Tales, Hans Christian Andersen or even the early animated children’s movies by Walt Disney, than just about anything else”.
