As far as my memories go back, passion for nature has always been present. The many hours spent searching for and observing wildlife remain engraved in my memory.
By the age of 15, I discovered photography and used my camera to capture the strong moments spent in contact with wildlife.
Very soon I join the associations of studies and protection of nature (LPO, ornithological and mammal groups ...).
A native of the Pays de Loire region, I develop my naturalist and photographer skills by regularly attending and promoting the two remarkable natural sites that are the Loire valley and the Basses Valleys Angevines.
Professional photographer since 2001, I endeavor to share with the greatest number the emotions experienced in contact with wildlife and thus participates in its preservation.
Before any shooting or reportage, I take the time to know the environment and the animal: I inquire and solicit the local skills (associations, naturalists ...); I spend long hours observing the behavior of the species; I soak up the atmosphere. So I can photograph at best.
Thanks to this method, the proximity with the animal is sometimes surprising.
For certain species (large birds of prey, bustard ...) the hours of watch can be very long (from sunrise to sunset) so as not to disturb the species and thus "fatigue the chance" as Robert said so well Hainard.
For almost thirty years, Christine and Michel Denis-Huot, spend several months a year in the bush, mainly in the heart of the Masai Mara, where they observe and photograph African wildlife and the environment. Michel has always been passionate about nature and fell under the spell of the great wilds of East Africa on his first trip to Kenya in 1973 at the age of 20. This is Tanzania, in 1985, he met Christine. Since then, privileged witnesses of the beauty and fragility of nature, they explore the savannah independently aboard their 4x4s. For them, photography is not just a profession, it is primarily the expression of a deep attachment to nature and freedom ... Their photographic work delivers a passionate look and attentive including the big cats - lions , leopards, cheetahs - they find themselves year after year. They know better than anyone enter the atmosphere and capture the lights of these grandiose extended, show the tremendous wealth and astonishing vitality of animal life. Their images have been published in many prestigious magazines, both in France and abroad.
While practicing photography during his travels, Christine specializes in the drafting of texts of many photographic subjects on wildlife they have sold all over the world and their many books.
Passionate about animal photography.
Born on April 22, 1946 in Vesoul (Haute-Saône).
Current residence in Obernai (Bas-Rhin).
First expeditions to Amazonia and Papua New Guinea in the 1970s.
First cooperation with iconographic agencies in the 1980s.
For more than 40 years, I have traveled the world in search of rare or original moments of animal life. I am interested in mythical species such as the polar bear or the lute turtle as well as the banal species of our fauna such as the European Roe deer.
