FOCUS ON PHOTO TECHNICS AND TIPS  AMONG THOUSANDS OF BIRDS

Along the coasts you often take a quiet seat with huge groups of birds all around you. Since you don't really have to look for the animals, you can spend all your time looking for the right image. Not just any sharp photo, but a creative and interesting image that stands out. And with the good technical guidance that Michel will give you, you will certainly succeed.

There are plenty of times in the evening to view the images together and refine your technique or ask questions.

The intention is to return as a better photographer, and at the same time gain an unforgettable experience in one of the wildest places in Europe.

MICHEL D'OULTREMONT - PRO REISBEGELEIDER

contact: michel@wildpixtravel.nl

 

 

“A nature lover since childhood, it is at the age of twelve that I put my eyes behind binoculars for the first time.

I have always enjoyed my Belgian countryside looking for birds and wild mammals. It is first that I will photograph water birds. Then mammals such as fox, deer or deer slowly entered my camera finder.

My passion slowly but surely leads me to the Ardennes and I fall in love with this region of Belgium. Then I split my time between school and nature. The call of the wild world will win reason: in 2016 I will be a nature photographer. This is a passion that gives me a lot more happiness than limits.

PHOTOGRAPHIC APPROACH

Through my photos I try to translate the beautiful by showing the aesthetic aspect of nature and biodiversity. The environment plays a big role, because my photographic approach usually shows the animal in a magical biotope. But more and more it is the special lights and the animals that I am looking for. Present or absent, they are the ones who guide and define my images. "
