Wild Wonders of Europe “Moldova”


picture-15 July 2009


Despite the official permit to photograph in Codrii National Park, this guard keeps bothering me and arguing that I can’t take pictures from the roof of the scientists’ building… Without my translator I am trying to explain that I am only taking pictures of the morning lights and I do have the permit from the Director himself.


Probably I wasn’t clear enough as he grabs my 500 mm with my D3 and lifts them above the fence, warning me that if I’d carry on, he’d throw them from the roof… My gear is already half way in the air when I discover myself as a dangerous maniac lunatic shouting and ready to slaughter anyone with my tripod… The guard must understand french as he steps back and puts my lens carefully on my bag. He leaves the roof without a word with this fairly surprised and worried look…

Wild Wonders of Europe “Urban Foxes” London



 May 2009



Wild Wonders of Europe… Mmmmh, remote places, peaceful, green and human-free zones… so my next mission is: London.

After Barcelona and the peregrine falcon, Wild Wonders of Europe sent me back to one of the most populated capitals in Europe to get some new pictures of red foxes… I have worked a lot with urban foxes but that was years ago. All the places I used to go have changed and the foxes have vanished. So I decided to talk about the project to half of the Londoners…

Wild Wonders of Europe “Peregrine Falcon in Barcelona”

This time Wild Wonders of Europe sent me to Barcelona, to get some pictures of the fastest bird on earth, the Peregrine Falcon.

In 1999, Eduard Durany and Jusep Valls reintroduced the peregrine in the city of Barcelona. One couple decided to establish their livingroom on one of the most visited monuments in Europe, The Sagrada Familia, the magnificent cathedral conceived by Antoni Gaudi.

Wild Wonders of Europe “Grey Seals at Donna Nook”


 November 2008


Wild Wonders of Europe has started!!!


First mission: Donna Nook, England, UK.
After checking on Google, Donna Nook appeared to be a RAF bombing range… Hmmm, what a funny choice for a Wild Wonders mission to photograph soldiers at a military camp. But since Obama has been elected and the media have portrayed him as the perfect new president of the world… maybe Soldierus militaricus is a freshly new threatened species on the IUCN red list and WWE wants to record the last specimen…” I realized my mistake when I checked the “Must Do shot list” including : fights, close up and… mating!?! I was about to quit the project when Florian Moellers called me to say “Noooo, not those big fat guys! THOOOSE big fat guys : the SEALS!!!”. OOOOOOK! Of course, the seals! …
