About HPH Publishing

Heinrich van den Berg, together with Philip and Ingrid van den Berg made their dreams come true. Being professional wildlife photographers since 1997, they encountered the same problem many photographers battle with - how do I get my images published in the way that I want to have them shown to the world?

So in 2001 they formed HPH Publishing, a publishing company with the ambitious aim to create books that are beautiful, of exceptionally high printing quality and useful. From the start they sacrificed possible profits for quality. They only desired one thing - to have their images published in the way they wanted to have them shown. Since 2001 HPH Publishing has published more than 30 books.

Heinrich van den Berg (www.heinrichvandenberg.com) is an international award-winning wildlife photographer, as well as being an accomplished writer and publisher. Based in Johannesburg, South Africa, Heinrich is well known for pushing the boundaries of photography to create explosive images that are as beautiful as they are emotive. To achieve such presence through the visual medium, Heinrich is in essence a thinking photographer. He travels extensively in search of unique images – always with an eye for the unusual and a new perspective on the known world. Through the lens he captures evocative moments in time, which leave lasting impressions through the pages of his carefully crafted books. In 1998 Heinrich left his profession as a civil engineer to follow his passion and work full time as a wildlife photographer. In order to portray his images as accurately as possible to readers, he acquired all the necessary book-publishing skills and, together with Philip and Ingrid van den Berg, established HPH Publishing in 2001.

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, 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.

HPH Publishing is proud to have published the work of many excellent photographers and authors, including:
