Specialized equipment for Wildlife Photographers

Based in France, Tragopan was founded in 2010 - with the aim of offering every passionate enthusiast wildlife photographer the best possible and highest quality gear - Our products are now available from numerous specialist retailers all around the world.

Tragopan does not participate in the hunting industry, since it’s against everything we love and want to protect. Moreover, we reduced the amount of plastic in our packaging drastically and we stand and are willing to collaborate with initiatives in pro of environment and wildlife.
