Olivier SIMON

Hello, i'm a nature photographer from France.
Since my childhood I always liked to be in contact with nature. Only as an observer at first, I started taking pictures with the camera of my father. What a pleasure it was to keep a souvenir of an encounter with an animal or a beautiful light on the Loire Valley.
What was a hobby during my vacation will gradually become a true passion. Now I spend most of my free time on the field and I'm equipped with more advanced cameras and lenses. Native of the Loire Valley, the migratory birds that nest there each spring are my favorite subjects, especially terns. I use a floating hide to approach the tiny islands where they breed.
But I also travel to discover new horizons and a different fauna. California and Scandinavia are my favorite destinations.
