This is the first time that many of the 3,000 plus images in this collection have been available world-wide.
The images were previously only available through limited channels but now Frans Lanting has chosen Alamy to achieve a wider distribution.
Alamy‘s Head of Content Alan Capel said: “In discussions, it very quickly became clear that Frans was looking for a distribution outlet that would widen the market for his outstanding imagery in a low-hassle high-impact way.
“We are delighted that he has chosen Alamy and we are very excited by the stunning and atmospheric photography that this collection brings to Alamy.”
Frans Lanting’s influential work appears in books, magazines and exhibitions around the world. For more than two decades he has documented wildlife and our relationship with nature in environments from the Amazon to Antarctica.
He has been commissioned frequently by National Geographic, where he served as a Photographer-in-Residence. Lanting’s recent work includes profiles of global ecological hot spots and a series on American landscapes

He has received top honours from World Press Photo, the title of BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year and the Sierra Club’s Ansel Adams Award.
