Mindful Photographer | Empowerment Speaker/ Coach | Conservation Photographer & Filmmaker


Working in co-creation with Nature – Opening up the eyes, hearts and minds of as much people as i possibly can, by guiding people in getting in touch with nature and their own true nature. To help embody and express their own beauty and perfection,  just like nature does. Through my work as a photographer and filmmaker I facilitate  instructional and life-changing workshops and master classes across the globe. Providing direct individual and group experiences in nature, using the art of photography  as a powerful vehicle to self-mastery.

Next to inspirational empowerment talks, I  provide additional workshops in intuitive development, authentic movement, nature quests and self-mastery travel programs for co-creators with Nature, students and children around the world.

Maurice Spees (1975) is an award winning wildlife, conservation and travel photographer and filmmaker based in the Netherlands and SE-Asia.

With both a mindful and intuitive approach to my work I offer my presence and work as a gift to you. All I ask in return is your contribution to make it possible for me to continue giving these gifts to people and inspiring others to be their gift to the world.  So that we help each other making dreams come true.

I work entirely in co-creation with Nature and my clients are the people that do the same.

Maurice has been working around the globe as a conservation, art and travel photographer and filmmaker, spreading his love for nature and her beauty across the world. Through both film and photography Maurice tends to share the power of our connection with nature instilling this beauty and magic into people’s hearts. With Mindful Photography he continues connecting and engaging people with the natural beauty of our ordinary life. Using the art of film and photography as a powerful communication and transformation tool to tab into the potent gift we all carry as caretakers of our planet; to help maintain beauty, harmony and balance that is naturally present in nature and within ourselves.


Throughout my work as a traveling cameraman/ director, documentary filmmaker and photographer (15 years) I discovered my innate intercultural adaptability, which together with an intuitive and spontaneous approach to life became the primary ingredients of my work and exploration as a fine-art wildlife, conservation, and travel photographer. My fascination for Asian culture let me to SE-Asia in 2003, where I spend a good eight years of my life. Merging my passion for eastern philosophy, nature, performance art, chi energy and insight meditation into the dedicated gift I offers today. My primary source of inspiration is: intuitive communication with nature. I let nature communicate through my work. From the synergy of all these ingredients I developed a knack for empowering and guiding people into their unique potential and true self, while being a guide and example.

All I do is express my love for the world through my work”

Life can never be boring when you're mindful. Every simple thing in life becomes so magically, that you can just bathe in true presence itself every single moment and feel fulfilled.
