News about our wildlife, underwater and landscape photography projects
As professional photographers specializing in wildlife, underwater and landscape photography, we travel for our projects. These projects are intended for customers who make special requests. But they can also be personal for creating or adding artistic photos to our fine art photography collections.
It is important for us to share our experiences and show some of the photographs taken in the field. These images come directly from the camera or a little post-processed to show in which direction we will focus our artistic research. We believe that it is important to always share our work, our experience and our thoughts to have constructive feedback.
In general, we have a monthly project. It can last a few days or two weeks. As we photograph nature, conditions are often variable. We must constantly adapt to make our photos.
Often, we are asked if we do a lot of photographs in the field. Everything depends on the subject, the external conditions, our physical state. In wildlife photography projects, we can make more than 2000 photos during a work week. Indeed, we often shoot in a burst mode to freeze a behavior, an attitude. The number of photos for underwater photography projects is much smaller: 500 to 600 shots per week. For landscape photography projects, we are much more restrictive: about a hundred photos a week. In this case, it is the light that conditions our photos. We are working rather in the morning or at the end of the afternoon. The days are spent looking for sites, points of view.
But whatever the type of photo project, we keep few pictures. For customer projects, we usually keep about twenty photos. For our individual projects, a collection never exceeds twelve photos.
