About me

I am a passionate wildlife photographer from Panama and member of Audubon Society, Panama chapter. I bought my first camera (a Sony Lumix), in 2007 and started taking pictures of landscapes, birds, insects and even some astrophotography very influenced by my father Dr. Osvaldo Quintero H., a great panamanian wildlife photographer.  Then I got a Nikon D60 which I used almost exclusively for macro photography of small insects and later on I moved to a Nikon D300 that allowed me to get into bird photography, a Nikon D7200 and now I mainly use a Canon R7 mirrorless camera. My lenses includes a Nikkor AF-S 200-500mm, Nikkor AF-S 300mm f4, Nikkor 105mm micro f2.8 and a Canon 100-500mm RF.

I am working on being a full-time wildlife photographer living from this joyful activity that combines science and art and which allow me to show you the incredible wildlife of my country Panama, which have more than 1000 registered bird species.

Internationally I have been a finalist and official selection in the International Photo Awards (IPA) contest in 2020, 2021 and 2022. Locally I obtained the George Angehr medal in the Panama Bird Festival by winning the Aveclick photography contest in 2022 and acted as judge in the same contest in 2023.
