About Me

Hi, I’m Marko Poolamets, founder and guide in Capture Estonia. About 16 years ago I started with nature photography as a hobby. I have been focused on that hobby since then and managed to reach the well known photographer reputations over the years.  This company was established  in 2011 to offer high quality outdoor and nature experiences, introduce Estonian history, culture and way of living,  teach people to tell their story through photography and support local nature conservation efforts.

Over 10 years of  experience as a nature guide/photographer, very good feedback from my clients and several awards and recognition’s are convincing me that I we have chosen the right path and products for our customers. We tailor EVERY tour based on your needs and interests!

Last 4 years I have been focusing also to film making. I have been involved in several smaller projects and currently working on 3 one-hour documentaries that will be finished in the end of 2018 and first half of 2019.
