henrique cordeiro

I was born in Peniche in August 1954. At 32 emigrated to Switzerland and those blue lakes, forests and fauna existing there were the reason for my passion for photography.
As my technique evolved, in part due to French specialized photographic reading such as "chasseur d'images and photo" I fixed myself definitely in nature photography.

I visited the most inhospitable places, and after hours of waiting, adverse weather conditions and a lot of patience here comes the desired species, the ideal light, is the time! ... The photo is taken and the day becomes rewarding!
It is not easy in a small makeshift shelter, the camera secured on a tripod, because it is necessary to use slow shutter speeds. It turns out however that spend days without a single photo, but do not give up and with the same desire, because when you least expect are gratified with unpredictable scenes I call "gifts of nature."
It is an activity that requires a lot of patience and perseverance as opposed to another type of photography where the subject is almost always accessible.

In conclusion tone, I appeal to all nature photographers, never forget that when trying to photograph certain species, should never interfere with your path, do not endanger or frightens you most of all because the photographer is a supporter of nature.
