Domarna i SM i Naturfotografi 2022 presenteras här
Huvuddomarens uppgift är att vara support för jurypanelen och se till så att de tex. håller tider, följer reglerna och är införstådda med bedömningssystemet. Huvuddomaren gör ingen bildbedömning om han/hon inte behöver hoppa in för att ersätta någon i den ordinarie panelen tex vi risk för jäv.
Domare bedömer bilderna i tävlingen, som är helt digital. Olika domare bedömer olika kategorier baserat på varje domares unika kompetens. Den digitala bedömningen görs online med stöd av huvuddomaren.
Hur går urvalsprocessen till vid val av domare och hur agerar domarna under arbetet? Här hittar du information som från huvuddomare Jörgen Brandt!
HUVUDDOMARE - JØRGEN BRANDT, DANMARK
For me, photography is a way of life, a job and a hobby – and the boundaries are often fluid or non-existent.
The light and form must always be there and must support the image. As a photographer, in my personal images, I work more and more with the abstract, perhaps closer to abstraction, where things become “more” and often “other” than they are.
Been a mentor for photographers from, among others, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, UK, Netherlands, Belgium, Slovakia, France, etc.
Has taught and lectured on photography in Denmark, the Faroe Islands, Japan, Latvia, France, UK, Sweden and more.

ANN COPPENS, BELGIEN
My name is Ann Coppens and I am a photographer living in Belgium.
My great passion for nature and wildlife photography has taken me to many corners of the globe.
With my camera I am always looking for emotions. One of my aims is to capture the perfect light in a photo.
As a wildlife photographer you need to have the patience to be able to get that one moment in an image. For this moment I often have to wait several hours or days. But catching that look that says it all or that moment when the light is perfect in the scenery makes it all worth-will.
JOSHUA HOLKO - AUSTRALIEN
Born in Melbourne, Australia, I am a full-time professional Nature and Wildlife photographer. A passionate photographer, teacher, and adventurer I run workshops and expeditions for other photographers and travellers to some of the world's wildest and remotest regions.
Specialising in the Polar and sub-Polar regions of the globe, my work celebrates the extreme latitudes of the Polar environment. An ambassador for the Polar Regions I gave up the corporate world to pursue my true passion for photography. You are welcome to join me on a photographic trip of a lifetime to some of the most magical destinations on this planet.
Living in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, I studied with distinction at the Australian Photography Studies College and the Australian College of Journalism. I am a fully accredited AIPP Double Master of Photography and was a member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers (AIPP) until it closed its doors in late 2021. In 2011 I was selected to appear in the AIPP 'Look for the Logo' television campaign highlighting some of Australia's best photographers. In 2011, I was also appointed as Australia's first and only Moab Master Photographer and Printer by Moab and Legion Paper in the USA. In early 2012, I was honored to be appointed as a member of the esteemed Coloratti by X-Rite and was subsequently interviewed for Nik Radio in late 2012. Early in 2013, I was honored as the 2012 Outdoor Photographer of the Year in the 'Spirit of Adventure category for my photograph of Mountain Climbers in Antarctica. In 2013, 2014, and again in 2015, I was elected to the Victorian Council of the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers. In 2014 I also won the Australian AIPP Canon Professional Science, Environment and Nature Photographer of the Year and Victorian Epson Professional Photographer of the Year grand prize along with overall State category wins in Science, Environment and Nature, Creative Photographer of the Year, and Highest Scoring Print of the Year. In 2015 I was honored as the Global Arctic Photographer of the Year with five medals across multiple categories.
In 2017 and 2018 I was named the Victorian Epson Professional Documentary Photographer of the Year as well as being a finalist in the Science, Wildlife, and Wild Places category. I was also highly honored in Nature's Best Photography in the Nature in Motion category for Ghosts of the Arctic and was a finalist in Travel Photographer of the Year. In 2019 I was named the Victorian Epson Nature Photographer of the Year and was a finalist in the APPA National Australian Professional Photography Awards in the Nature Category. In 2020 I joined the AIPP Board as a Director of the Institute and served for 18 months until closed in late 2021. In 2021 I won the Silver medal for Australia in the World Photographic Cup in the Nature category and was the overall winner in the Natural World category in the AIPP Silver Lining Awards.
My photography has taken me on extensive travels throughout Australia, Tasmania, New Zealand, North and South America, Canada, China, Europe, Iceland, Norway, Finland, Greenland, Mongolia, the Arctic, and Antarctica. I also pursue an active interest in mountain biking and wilderness trekking.
In Australia, I am officially represented by Philip Kulpa and the Source Photographica Gallery. International representation includes the Aspen Gallery in Aspen USA. My work has also been exhibited at international shows and expos across the USA and Europe including Photokina in Germany and PhotoPlus in New York.
TRACEY LUND, STORBRITANNIEN
I am a UK based wildlife photographer. My photographic journey began after an inspiring trip to Africa in 2004 which enabled me to combine my two favourite passions of wildlife and photography.
After returning to the UK, I wanted to develop my photography and so joined several Photographic Societies. Entering photographic competitions has been a valuable learning experience and has helped my photography to evolve. I then started submitting my pictures into major worldwide Wildlife Competitions to see how my images compared with the world-class photography they represent. I continue to challenge myself as this is what drives me to be better.
“My passion for wildlife has taken me around the world, there is nothing I love doing more. I spend hours in the field, it is a true blessing to be able to take time to sit and watch the animals. I would like people to share something of the emotion I experience pursuing my photography and I try hard to show that passion through my images. Photographing wildlife is an adventure, but most of all a privilege”.
