As a former motocross rider, I could only share a bit of my passion here through photography. Instead of showing you some of my own portfolio pictures, I thought I’d introduce you to one of the best professional photographers in this field. And one of the reasons I chose him was because he works for several big motocross magazines and pro-teams to cover the US outdoor championship and the world championship too.
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.
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.
Aurelien is our very first talented photographer that iLHP is glad to showcase thanks to our Flickr Group. His astral photographs and landscape shots are simply outstanding. We’re glad not only to showcase his work but also to provide you with an exclusive interview.
iLHP: Hi Aurelien, I’m very glad to have you here as our first iLHP Flickr group winner! Congratulations, your work is outstanding! Please tell us more about yourself?
Aurelien: Hi Chris, I’m 30 years old, I’m a sports teacher in France. I’m not a professional photographer, just a passionate amateur.
iLHP: How long have you been into photography? Continue reading 1st iLHP Flickr Group Winner: Aurelien Bernard, the Astro and Landscape Photographer
First of all, I want to thank Edward T. for giving me the opportunity to collaborate with him on this website and share with you all my experience of photography.
So Hi, I’m Chris M. and I live in the Paris area. That being said, it is not relevant information as my photography style is about macro photography, natural landscapes and silhouetted subjects.
