for images and inspiration from the natural world
Nature Picture Library covers every aspect of the natural world – animal portraits and behaviour, landscapes and travel, pets, plants, indigenous peoples, and environmental issues, representing more than 400 leading wildlife and nature photographers worldwide. We have 700,000 hi-res images searchable online, including both stills and footage, and specialist staff to assist in your search. We produce features, book ideas and calendar concepts, which are available for development. In 2021 NPL partnered with the Earth Project to launch a photography competition that helped raise awareness of the climate and biodiversity crises ahead of the landmark COP26 conference.
Nature Picture Library is UK agent for the renowned Minden Pictures collection.
The NPL collection includes many rare and endangered species, images taken in extreme and inaccessible locations, and photos obtained by using specialist techniques such as high-speed, night vision and remote camera photography.
We actively support conservation by making regular donations from our sales revenue to a small charity or specific project which is making a difference. We choose a different charity every three months, so just by licensing images from Nature Picture Library, you can make a difference!
