Based in Manaus, Brazil, The Amazon Stock Photography was founded by photographer Leonide Principe in 1988. The images have been used numerous times to enrich pages of well-known national publications (Horizonte Geographic, Earth View, Folha de So Paulo, Icarus, etc.) and international magazines (Natura Oggi, Das Tier, VSD, Geo, etc.) and also in the illustration work for advertising companies and institutions. Today his collection includes over 25,000 selected RAW images with an extensive documentation of flora, fauna, folklore, landscapes, wildlife, ecotourism, research and population among others, and it continues growing. He always avoided images such as deforestation, destruction and disease, trying to look at the integrity of nature, sharing the positive side of it with his customers.
