iLHP is always trying to bring you new content. We’ve decided to welcome to the team a fantastic pro landscape/wildlife photographer who travels around the world. Nicolas Orillard is a very successful pro-photographer who will share his experience as a pro-photographer and talk about his fantastic travels around the world.
“Photography is for me the possibility to switch off the rest of the world, to come to peace. The time spend hiking, waiting for the light to come, watching the nature around me is my opportunity to get better. It is somehow a therapy.”
iLHP: Hi Nicolas, we’re very pleased to have you here at iLHP. You’re a pro photographer who travels a lot, can you please tell us a bit about yourself?
iLHP: So Nicolas, we’re thrilled to have you in the team and can’t wait read your articles about your travels and your experience as a pro photographer. Can you tell us in a few words what you will be talking about?
I am very honoured that Edward T. invited me to join him as well as other fellow photographers on this new exciting website collaboration. I am especially flattered since I have been a huge fan of Edward’s work from the first time I saw his breathtaking images. Hopefully my images can inspire some of you, just as Edward’s photos have inspired me.
My name is Alyssa and I currently live in Toronto, Canada. My background is in fashion design and visual merchandising. I lived most of my life in Toronto, however, for the past 12 years I have been living in Florida, California and most recently Paris, before moving back to Toronto this past year.
Since April of 2008, it has been two years since I picked up my first DSLR. I’ve shot roughly 25000 frames. An average of 35 frames per day. A roll of film, each day, for the past two years then. I’ve grown from a complete photography newbie to what I would consider an obsessive amateur.
I absolutely love visual art, paintings, sculptures, and films, but I myself am hopeless at drawing, sketching, or painting. So, photography is my creative outlet. I have a love hate relationship with the craft. I often find that capturing the moment means being behind it, not within it. Yet, observing through a lens has opened me to unexpectedly new perspectives on life.
[2014 Edit:] I started this website initially as a portfolio of my work, but it has grown into an collaboration between photographers. An art collective if you well. We talk about anything camera or photography related. Industry news, recent purchases, vintage cameras and what have you. It’s going to be great.
We love questions, comments, suggestions, criticisms, fanboy-rants, and everything else that comes with writing down your opinions for all to read. There is a real person behind these words and he’d love to know what you think about his small corner of the internet.
