Author Biographies

Husband and wife award-winning photographers Philip and Ingrid van den Berg share a love of Africa and all its facets. It is their passion to capture unique moments in nature and share these with readers, through the pages of their wildlife books. Based in Pietermaritzburg in KwaZulu-Natal, and now retired from careers in environmental education and biological sciences, Philip and Ingrid have transformed a love of photography into a full-time  hobby , with several acclaimed wildlife books to their credit. With their extensive knowledge of the natural world coupled with their scientific backgrounds, they are an integral part of the HPH team of photographers and writers. 

Heinrich van den Berg is an international award-winning wildlife photographer, and is also an accomplished writer and publisher. Based in Johannesburg, South Africa, Van den Berg is well known for pushing the boundaries of photography to create explosive images that are as beautiful as they are emotive.


Van den Berg heads his own publishing company, HPH Publishing, and has successfully published over 40 full-colour wildlife titles since 2001. His books are highly acclaimed for both their quality and content.


Heinrich and his wife Dana travel extensively in search of unique images, always with an eye for the unusual and a new perspective on the known world. Although Dana is a new addition to the team, she has already contributed substantially to the pool of photographs in the HPH Image Library. 

Along with other photographs from the HPH fold, Heinrich has featured prominently in numerous coffee-table books, calendars, magazine portfolios and other photographic publications worldwide. Both national and international magazines such as National Geographic, GEO, TERRA, Terra Sauvage, the New York Times, the Times of London, Getaway, Africa Geographic, Go! and numerous others have published HPH work.

Van den Berg also shares his photography knowledge through exclusive workshops held across southern Africa.

A Pleasant Surprise

I bought this book as a engagement present for a young couple who are immigrating to the USA. It was couriered within hours of purchase but more importantly was a complete surprise. What a prefect gift. It is packed with information on South Africa with beautiful pictures to accompany the narrative. First time I have used HPH & wouldn't hesitate to use them again.
