Behzad Farahanchi

Behzad Farahanchi has been a freelance wildlife photographer in Iran for more than 15 years. As a photographer and photography instructor, he specializes in capturing images of carnivores in their natural habitat, and considers the Persian leopard to be the holy grail in this region. Whenever possible, he is happy if his images can in some way help to further efforts to protect Iran’s native wildlife.
