Hi visitor !

My name is Ambre, I am a 26-years-old non professional photographer from France.
I love nature photography (macro, landscape and especially animal photography), but I also appreciate any form of art.
Actually, I am a veterinarian and also a cat lover, this is why there are so many kitty pictures in my gallery.

News about me / Wildlife photographers homage

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 24, 2014, 12:22 PM
Hi dear watchers !


It's been a long, very long time since I added my last journal entry and it might be the right moment to give you some news about me.


As you maybe have noticed (or not), I recieved my third Daily Deviation a few months ago ! I was very surprised, being rewarded with an iguana picture while my main subject is generally more about cats... it was incredible lol ! Unbelievable yes, but I am obviously very glad and proud about it too.

Thanks again Anoya !


Au Parc Zoologique De Paris I by darkcalypso




All the support I recieve from you is really exciting ! Thanks a bunch !!!


But as a matter of fact, I am experiencing some dissatisfaction with my actual approach of photography.
To tell the truth, I have always dreamed about being a real wildlife photographer and taking pictures of captive or domesticated animals doesn't satisfy me anymore... This is why I will carry on working with my camera to learn how to catch animal beauty in the wild.

Don't be afraid, it doesn't mean I won't take those pictures anymore, I will just submit more wild (and maybe, for now, less "eyecatching") animal photos. Well, moreover, Paris is not a very good playground for wildlife photography... it might be quite a long learning. lol



Here is a picture from my summer work on real wildlife photography, a great moment, full of emotion.

And here is what I aspire (in my dreams) to do lol.
This is a wildlife photographer homage !
A big thanks to these so talented photographers.
There is still work for me, a lot of work !...

What inspired you to be a photographer? I myself show no special talent in it, but I enjoy doing it greatly. Often, when we go to an amusement park, instead of riding anything I run off to snap pictures of floral life and animals. I can't seem to get anywhere with it, and that frustrates me. The thing is, I hardly have anything to take pictures of. My cats are my only real photo worthy thing in the area. And even then, I can't take them outside or anywhere
worth taking a picture. I guess I'm asking for help. I don't even know anymore.
