Macro Photographer: Nicolas Frin “The Fairy Maker”

“Fairytales,” that’s what this French photographer inspires me. We’ve interviewed a lot of macro/wildlife photographers lately, even Michel D’Outltremont who’s a freshly BBC award winning talent, but Nicolas Frin has his own vision of macro. His style is very light, very pure, and he masters bokeh like no one else does. I am very excited about introducing Nicolas and know more about him and his art!

BBC Award Winning Wildlife Photographer Michel D’Oultremont

Michel is a precocious talent. At 22 years old only he already won 2 of the most prestigious wildlife photography prizes and is about to release his first book “A l’Affut” (“On The Lookout”) and yet still a student at a school of photography. iLHP is particularly honored to have him answer our questions and he has been kind enough to let us discover even more his world as a wildlife photographer.

Michel D'oultremont interview

iLHP: Hi Michel, I am very pleased and honored to be able to interview you for our online magazine. Indeed, as some might not know already, you just won at the end of 2014, two of the most prestigious wildlife photography prizes! (the Rising Star Award of the BBC Wildlife of London and the Fritz Polking Nachwuchspreis from the GDT of Lunen for photographers under 23). So I am very glad to showcase your photographs here! To start with, can you just tell us a little bit about you?

Michel: Hi, well thanks for inviting me in this magazine. What can I say ? I was born in 1992, in a very small village in the country side of Belgium drowned in a beautiful intact nature. I was very lucky to grow up among animals and little by little I became passionate about them.
