May 2016. Wildlife photo conference in Paris
May 2016. We hosted a conference dedicated to wildlife photography. We were invited by several photography clubs to explain this photographic discipline. Fifty photographers, most neophytes in this wildlife photo were present.
For about one hour and half, we explained how to approach wildlife photography. We spoke about composition, framing and choice of light depending on the photographed species. We talked about photography of big European and American mammals as well as birds of Europe. We deliberately chose to speak of subjects that participants in the conference could find not far from home.
We addressed themes that are dear to us as the education of photographers to learn to better know and protect nature. We gave some essential keys to highlight the animals in their natural environment. We addressed complex issues such as the choice of photographic elements and attributes but in a simple way. We wanted a simple speech, educational, understandable by the assembly.
We believe that organizing regularly conferences on wildlife photography can show that nature is beautiful but very fragile and must be respected and protected. We are professional photographers but first of all guests on earth.
