About the author

Over the past 35 years, I have been carrying out a sustained and diverse photographic activity. After several years of animal photography, I carried out very dense audiovisual activities with the prerequisite of studio photography. Yet, I did not forget the great outdoors, taking pictures with a 9 meters wingspan kite or a 2.50m diameter helium tethered balloon and also enjoying photography with drones, that I practiced with 4 different models. Now, I return to my first love: the ornithological picture. For 3 years I’ve been exploring the world of hummingbirds. A look that focuses only on in-flight photography of these very endearing little birds.
