Marc Guyt

The quest to create the ultimate photo ID-guide

Marc is a birder and bird photographer with a keen interest in photographing seabirds and seeing the more skulking birds of this planet. Founder and director of AGAMI Photo Agency, a Dutch based stock agency specializing in birds and nature images.

Marc also writes a blog series for Birdlife Netherlands about his travel experiences in his quest to see the birds in the world and is co-founder of the Texel Big Day, a 24 hour big day bird race by bike for conservation on Texel, Netherlands.

Initiator of the Handbook European Birds (authored by Nils van Duivendijk), a two book photo identification set of the birds of Europe in every identifiable plumage. A 7+ year project in which Marc collected all the necessary images of all plumages, images that were essential to show the identification features.

Other recent book projects Marc was involved include Europe’s Birds (WildGuides), Birds of the Netherlands (Vogelinformatiecentrum Publishing) and co-author of the Pocket photo guide to the butterflies of the Benelux (KNNV Publishing).

When not birding and creating publications and events Marc likes to walk the Camino de Santiago – without his binoculars and camera!
