Hi, my name is Lucien and I am based in Plymouth, Devon, UK. I am trying to achieve my life long goal of working in the conservation sector and have gone back to study Environmental Science Bsc through the Open University in my spare time after work. I have experience working with animals as I was a volunteer for 2 years working in the husbandry team for Plymouth aquarium.I also have started volunteering for the Community seagrass initiative where we undertake local surveys of seagrass beds using scuba gear to record diversity of species and habitat areas with photography and survey quadrants.However one of my major passions is to create photos and videos of of the natural world. All kinds of nature interest me from big and small to air, land and sea, hopefully I will eventually save enough to have the equipment to photograph the lot. At the moment my many interest is Macro photography and am building up a large portfolio of pictures of invertebrates I have taken from the UK and places I have visited on holiday using a number of different techniques, so check out my mini beast section if you are interested .The planet is fragile and if I can do my little bit to show people the beauty of Earths diverse species then I am happy. Hopefully I can move into other forms of photography and cinematography to do this. I am proficient in using Adobe photoshop light room and premier and am developing my after effects skills. I also have experience with gopros and am also divulging in aerial photography and cinematogrpahy using a DJI phantom 3 and shall create a show reel by the end of 2017 to display this. I use many techniques when taking photos or making films from panoramics to timelapses to focus stacking and am always trying to learn new ones, so if you have or want any tips please dont be afraid to let me know.
Anyway, please enjoy my site and the images and leave any feedback on my blog or through the contact page. Let me know if there are any images you like and would like a print of too and I will do my best to get one to you for a small price depending on the size.
Finally just enjoy and appreciate nature ! Lu.
