Joe Van Os
Joe is perhaps best-known as the Director of Joseph Van Os Photo Safaris—an international nature and wildlife photography tour company. While that company bears his name, he is, in fact, equally involved with the development and management of TravelWild Expeditions. In fact, TravelWild was originally called Joseph Van Os Nature Tours and later changed to TravelWild to avoid confusion. Joe is a consummate naturalist who has traveled extensively for the past few decades to view and photograph wildlife in remote areas throughout the world. His polar travels have taken him to Antarctica, South Georgia, the Falkland Islands, Greenland, Iceland and Spitsbergen. Other adventures have taken him to every continent to search for wildlife and photo opportunities.
