I am both a photographer and an ecologist. Those two skills do not seem to have a lot in common at first sight, but I strongly believe that they will both profit from a thorough collaboration.
I use my photography to bring ecology closer to the public. I use it to visualize my research and stress its importance.
I use photography to make the science easier to understand and to follow.
I use ecology to improve the story of my photography. I use it to make interesting pictures that might sparkle interest in a viewer.
Being a photographing ecologist pays off… Some of my pictures are featured on the website of the University of the Arctic for example, and I was a finalist in the photography contest of Perth’s ‘Mountains of our Future Earth’ conference. Besides, I have a mildly booming business of stock photography.
