Nature and Wildlife photographer
I share with you my experiences
in the heart of the Camargue

Hello and Welcome to my website. This site has the sole ambition to share with you my passion for photography. I have been doingthis for many years. Amateur photographer, I am passionate about Nature, birds and hiking. For me, hiking is inseparable from photography. Nature is what gives me inspiration, and photography taught me and developed in me a sense of observation, and to take a different look at what surrounds us.

When I started out in photography, my first camera was a Zenit SLR (at the time the Nikon F was not within my means). I continue to photograph on film from time to time with a large format Mamiya RB67, I mainly use “Provia 100F” slide. I practiced the black and white lab for several years, the appearance of images under safe light always has something magical for me…So I have an ancient film culture. However, today I no longer use small format film.

This site will evolve over the course of my outings and my favorites. I wish with all my heart to all of you visitors, that my images bring you as much joy as that which I had to realize them.

This site is dedicated to the beauty of Nature, and to all its lovers. Have a good walk in pictures, good visit, and thank you for your visit.


Wildlife Photography

My areas of observation

I live near Nîmes, a city close to a region that I particularly like, the Camargue in particular, but not only that.


The Camargue, made up of the Rhône delta, is about forty kilometers from Nîmes. The Camargue is the kingdom of water. I like this wetland of ponds and marshes for these landscapes, this is my favorite terrain for wildlife photography, and birds in particular. This proximity allows me to organize my getaways during the day. I have been taking wildlife photography since I retired. This discipline requires a lot of time in the field, and perseverance.
It is this interest in birds, and the proximity of this region that led me to the creation of this site dedicated to the Camargue and the birds of this region, in order to help you discover it and its fauna.


The Cévennes are located about sixty kilometers from Nimes. Mont Lozère peaking at the summit of Finiels at an altitude of 1,699 m, is about a hundred kilometers away. I particularly like this mountainous region, part of the Massif Central, for its landscapes, as well as its flora and fauna.
This region extends mainly over the departments of Lozère, Gard and Hérault. Southern part has a Mediterranean climate, while the region of Mont Lozère and Mont Aigoual has a more mountainous climate, given the altitude of these two massifs.

Great Causses

Great Causses extend to the south of the Aveyron department, in Lozère, Gard and also a small part of Hérault. The Grands Causses is an appellation which designates first of all a set of high limestone plateaus of varying size with reliefs shaped by puechs and valleys interspersed with ravines, valleys and gorges located to the south of the Massif Central. They rise from 700 to 1,200 m above sea level and are therefore part of the mountain level.

Alpilles and Crau

I also visit other regions not very far from my home :

  • The Alpilles in Provence, the Alpilles Regional Natural Park located between Luberon and Camargue low altitude mountain range, the Opies are the highest point at 496 meters above sea level.
  • The Crau plain, located south of the Alpilles, between the Etang de Berre and the Camargue, this plain is renowned for its remarkable landscapes, which are home to endemic fauna and flora.

Blog articles on these different regions


The galleries present photographs of free animals, in their natural environment. Photographs taken on the lookout, observatory or approach without disturbing them. The approach and observation of the animals must be done avoiding any disturbance that would be likely to disturb their peace of mind. You have to know how to give up taking a photograph that could cause a detrimental disturbance. To love, to know, to respect, are the rules to apply.

Since December 2020, I have joined the Nature First alliance of responsible nature photographers. Nature First promotes the protection and preservation of the world’s natural and wild spaces by inspiring, educating and bringing together all those who photograph and video in nature; empowering them to be ambassadors of the natural world.

I am a member of “Nature First” : The Alliance for Responsible Nature Photography and I am dedicated to following the Principles Nature First :

  • Prioritize the well-being of nature over photography.
  • Educate yourself about the places you photograph.
  • Reflect on the possible impact of your actions.
  • Use discretion if sharing locations.
  • Know and follow rules and regulations.
  • Always follow Leave No Trace principles and strive to leave places better than you found them.
  • Actively promote and educate others about these principles.
