iLHP Welcomes Nature Photographer Nicolas Orillard To The Team

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? 

Nicolas: Hi, I am a 32 year old french Nature Photographer based in the south west region of France. The majority of my pictures are taken around the world ( Norway, Scotland, Ireland, USA, Canada, New Zealand, Italy, Japan, Peru….) with recently more landscapes than wildlife.

Architectural Photography with Andreas Bildgestalter

Andreas Bildgestalter is one of those amateur photographers whose talent is outstanding and should be showcased widely in the photography world. iLHP is constantly on the lookout to find new talents and showcase professionals as well as amateurs who produce constantly breathtaking pictures. Andreas is one of them in his field: Architecture. His world is made of straight lines, tight curves and with a lot of purity. Let’s discover together his philosophy. Don’t miss out the link below to the “making of” of his most rewarded photograph!

iLHP: First of all, thank you very much Andreas for taking the time to answer to our questions. How long have you been into photography?

Andreas: I’m into photography since the beginning of 2011. I’ve been interested in photography before but never really jumped in it until then. I did shoot with a small digital camera during vacations though, and I bought my first digital reflex camera, which was a NIKON D90.

iLHP: How old are you if I may ask and where do you live?

Andreas: I’m 50 years old and I live in Gelsenkirchen which is a town in the Ruhrarea in West-Germany. It’s quite a good and central location to reach a lot of places around which are interesting for me.

Gravity Defying Ballet Dancer and Photographer Mickael Jou

Levitation is an emerging field of photography as you all know. Different techniques can be used (here’s a tutorial of a multi-exposure levitation technique), but the grace and elegance shown by Mickael Jou is simply outstanding. 

iLHP is very proud to say that this is the first detailed interview of this magnificent, poetic and graceful ballet dancer. He used to practice ballet and modern dance routines on the streets of Paris, where tourists would often photograph and film him. This gave him the idea of capturing portraits of himself and start a 365 day photo project showing his elegant, gravity-defying dance moves in spectacular snapshots.

“Whatever you’re doing, someone else probably already did it better than you. But that doesn’t mean that you cannot work to be better than them.”
