Expo : Rendez-vous ce week-end en Alsace
Je vous donne rendez-vous en Alsace pour la première édition du festival « Prenons la pause ». Une belle programmation très éclectique ...
As far back as I can remember, I have always wanted to work in the environment or rather for our environment.
My childhood dream.... "Forester on horseback in the Cévennes National Park".
In fact, my BTS in Management and Nature Protection led me to education where I taught computer science and animal classification in an adult training centre. I used my images to illustrate my courses.
As a teenager, I was interested in being a nature photographer, photography seemed to me to be the main vector for communicating about the beauties of the nature around us. I then began to photograph the unloved "little beasts" because they were not well known, spiders for example, but also flowers and landscapes. Very quickly, my free time was devoted for the most part to this passion and I diversified into my photographic subjects with birds and then mammals. It was from there that my career as a nature photographer began.
Today, all my time is devoted to images since I settled down as an independent nature photographer in January 2007. I created Oiseau-plume éditions for the release of my first book dedicated to the Durance in 2009. Then followed "Loiret petite Loire de région Centre", "Belles et sauvages les orchidées françaises", "Entre Seine et forêt, la biodiversité de Soisy-sur-Seine", "Kama-Sutra des petites bêtes" and quite recently "Papillons tout naturellement". I also organize photo workshops to share this passion for nature photography with other nature enthusiasts. Our nature photographer offers an apprenticeship in the field.
Organization and animation of photography courses, for beginners, amateurs or confirmed with a certified nature photographer. 2 to 5 day photo courses - throughout France: Sologne, Brenne, Auvergne, Aveyron, Var, Île de France, Vosges, Île Crémieu (near Lyon), Embrunais, Vercors, Corbières, Verdon... Your nature photographer will meet you to perceive the beauties of our environment. An on-the-job training, everyone learns at their own pace with our nature photographer.
Birds, mammals, insects, reptiles, amphibians, plants, all of them can be found there! This small communal territory landlocked in a particularly dense urban network of the south-east of the Parisian suburbs has a beautiful diversity.
The municipality of Soisy-sur-Seine has long been committed to preserving its natural heritage as much as possible. This has paid off, because here the tawny owl still flies over at night above the house that bears its name, the alyte sings his love to anyone who wants to hear it and the frail wild tulip thrives quietly in the light undergrowth of the Chèvrevières park. It must be said that the territory is conducive to diversity on the banks of the Seine, its many communal and private parks and its vast area in the forest of Sénart.
A great cohabitation success highlighted in 2012 by a numbered report produced by the Alizéa design office.
This book, first opus of the collection "Commune nature", has for main objective to inform, then to involve, each inhabitant with the protection and maybe even the development of the fauna and the flora which surround us. Protection and respect can only come with knowledge, so let's all learn to observe the beauty around us.

An ode to "Mother Nature" and her insatiable and perpetual desire for life.
Threesomes, swinging, polygamy ... And you think we are the only ones to "be creative" in the realm of making love? Not only are insects active in that field, they do not hesitate a moment to indulge in these libertine practices in the open, without fear of being photographed in action!
Insects and other little creatures have nothing to envy us.
Did you know that cantharides stay in mating position sometimes for more than 12 hours in a row? Or that some males make small gifts to their cherished ones while others use Middle Age techniques of putting them a chastity belt? Did you know that the sex of a fly is eight millimetres long? Have you ever seen bugs run the hundred meters while copulating? All the answers and more are waiting for you in this book.
This is the perfect gift for your friend who's celebrating his or her birthday, a super girlfriend a bit prude who will love the concept, a son in his 30s to whom you want to say ... "When will I be a grandma?" a wedding or a housewarming party!
Is it hard to find an original gift that will not only make the person you give it to laugh but also the rest of the assembly.
Look no further, Lorraine Bennery, naturalist photographer, offers here condensed love to share without moderation! Ancestral theme, small relevant texts, high quality photographs, small drawings and let the magic operate!
