News About My Wildlife, Underwater, and Landscape Photography Projects
As a professional photographer specializing in wildlife, underwater and landscape photography, I travel to gain experiences which will become future projects. Although these projects are created to fulfill the special requests of my customers, they are also opportunities to gain artistic photos for my fine art photography collections.
The Reasons I Write These Articles About my Photo Projects
It is important for me to share my experiences and my photographs taken on the field. These images come either directly from my camera or from my editing table with slight post-processing to highlight the focus of my artistic research. I believe that it is important to always share my work, my experience and my thoughts to gain constructive feedback.
Generally, I have a project per month. It can last for a few days or for two weeks. As I photograph nature, conditions vary, and I must constantly adapt to continue making excellent photos.
Often, I am asked if I take many photographs while on the field. Everything depends on the subject - both the external conditions and my own physical state.
In wildlife photography projects, I can make more than 2000 photos during a work week. Indeed, I often shoot in a burst mode to freeze a behavior or an attitude.
The number of photos for underwater photography projects is much smaller, ranging from 500 to 600 shots per week.
For landscape photography projects, I limit myslef to about a hundred photos a week, as it is the light that conditions my photos. In landscape photography, I am working rather in the morning or towards the end of the afternoon. Midday is spent looking for certain sites and points of view.
Nevertheless, after I have captured my photos, I narrow the collection to only a few pictures per project. For customer projects, I usually keep about twenty photos. For my individual projects, a collection never exceeds twelve photos.
