Our Team

The photographers who work on assignment for the OUR PLACE World Heritage project have a proven track record in documenting Cultural and Natural locations around the world.

Our team of International photographers endeavors to capture the human dimension of a site as well as its important physical elements and have worked in a large variety of cultures and geographical locations.

We have photographed over 360 sites in more than 85 countries and the OUR PLACE World Heritage Collection is the "the first official World Heritage Photographic databank." - UNESCO World Heritage Centre.

On assignment to the world's most interesting locations, OUR PLACE Photographers often encounter technical challenges and logistical problems but ultimately they have rewarding experiences.
