It has been with great pleasure that I have learned, yesterday, that 4 of my photographs have made it to the semi-finals in the world contest Wildlife Photographer of the year 2011 organized by the British Natural History Museum.

Considering they receive tens of thousands of photographs from all over the world every year, I am quite happy that my shots had made it to the semi-finals level. It is gratifying and encouraging while always confronted to the usual photographer questioning.

These 4 photographs were classified into 3 categories: Animal in their environment, Animal behavior and Wild Places (or out of the ordinary).

So here they are:

Animal in their environment:


Golden Grizzly evening



Sleeping beauty

Animal Behavior:


The big life of a Loon chick

Wild Places:


Doorway to the Frozen World

Other news:

We are about to fly to Newfoundland! We have been granted a special permit to photograph Atlantic Puffins on a nesting island site.

We will also take the opportunity to photograh Northern Gannets at Cape St.Mary's and coastal landscapes around the Avalon peninsula. To be followed...

Best of light !
