My name is Hélio Soares Júnior, I am a Brazilian biologist (B.S.: Biology, Pontifical Catholic University of Campinas, Msc.: Animal Biology, University of Campinas) and a self-taught Wildlife Photographer, specializing in nature macro photography. My style in photography consists by the search of scientific, natural history, ecological and conservation imagery.

Besides photography & biology, I love travelling, trekking, camping, waterfalls, movies, beer, basketball, dogs...
