Me in Action during a photo-shoot for
Regional Nature Park Livradois Forez
Last year I posted a blog post about my first big photo assignment in France.
The start up was a bit slow as the weather in Spring did not make it easy to plan things. But now, after a very busy Summer this assignment is reaching towards its end. I have still some work to do this month and in Autumn, but the big part of the assignment has been dealt with. And I can say that it was instructive and enjoyable at the same time.
I met a lot of very nice and interesting new people and I could explore some great (for me , new ) nature areas . Later on this year I will make a ‘best -of’ of my images in the final selection and put it all on my website under portfolio PNR Livradois Forez.
In the meantime people outside the project scene ‘ noticed’ the photo project for PNR Livradois Forez. It all started with the request for models for a photo shoot at the lake in Volle Montagne. The local newspaper, La Gazette picked it up and made an article about the photo reportage in the park, featuring me in action at a local garlic producer.
Moreover the editor of blog: Vollore Montagne – Gazette des Montagnards had heard about the photo-shoot in their village and asked me if it was ok to do a photo reportage on the shoot in Vollore Montagne (see images, Michel MENSE).
Yesterday the photo shoot took place at 8 AM at he lake.
The subject was: recreational activities at the lake.
A nice family and a St. Bernard (dog) signed up to volunteer. They had a pic-nick, a family walk and fun at the play ground. They also enjoyed the sun laying in a chair. Even though the ground was still very wet and the sun not very warm, they acted as naturally as possible, they did a very good job.
