Jérôme Guillaumot, Wildlife Photographer
After 25 years working in business consulting, as founder and Ceo of Axys Consultants, I dedicate all my time, energy and passion to Wildlife Photography.
Born in the area of Montpellier (south of France), I spend much of my time spotting and photographing the key species from the Languedoc Region. Specially, Coraciiforms class that includes the most beautiful European birds species (Rollers, Bee-Eaters, Hoopoes, King-Fishers) constitutes one of my favorite topics.
On the other side of the world, The African continent and its great Fauna is my favorite playground. Botswana, South Africa, Zambia, Tanzania, Kenya, Namibia provide amazing photographic topics and incredible spottings.
But the best topics can also be found in the close corner of the backyard as well as in the remote African savannah. Birds, squirrels and insects from my garden provide amazing photo opportunities. I try my hand at endless variations on these "close at hand" subjects, aiming to get some unexpected images. In my "Voltige" series, I have been working on a new concept where the white board background provides a means to enhance action photos of flight and fight of passerines from our European regions. I try to show these common species in very uncommon postures impossible to catch with the naked eye due to their fugacity.
