My bird photos

If I have to choose one subject as my favorite, it is nature photography. Unfortunatly birds are not very much into modelling, and you need to wake up early to catch them. So most of my bird portraits are a bit noisy. That makes every bird photos of mine accepted even more precious. Here are a few: green woodpecker (taken in Vienna, Austria) Sharp-shinned hawk (taken in NH, USA) Hoopoe (taken in Hungary) continue reading

How my dog photography has grown in quality with Dreamstime

Hi everyone, since I am a Dreamstimer I submitted a lot of my dog photography with tips on how to take decent shots on non cooperative models such as dogs... and I have to say, each refusal note was teaching me to perform better shots me too... This was one of my first, but on adult dogs it's easier: they're teached to stay and more collaborative. With puppies it's a real nightmare! If they stay, then you have a lie-down image that is not more different from a million similar ones,... continue reading
