Who am I?

Portrait Laurent And Lion

I feel less danger photographing wild animals than living with civilized people

Laurent Baheux

After first being involved in sport and current affairs photography, I later decided to devote myself solely to nature photography. In 2007, my success at the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition in the Creative visions of nature category provided the starting point for an artistic career based on animals and wildlife. For almost fifteen years, I have travelled to the last remaining protected areas on Earth, providing us with a visual record of the remnants of our wild planet.

Born in 1970, in Poitiers, France. Work with SONY ALPHA cameras & SONY G MASTER lenses.
