Nicolas Petit is a multi-talented nature photographer from France who is passionate about capturing the local wildlife. His aim is not only to document the animals, but also to capture their uniqueness and beauty. He has undoubtedly achieved this with his wonderful photographs.

In his own words, Nicolas describes his close relationship with nature and the forest, which began in his childhood. Growing up in a small village on the edge of the Reims mountains, he loved to accompany his family on activities such as picking mushrooms or walking in the forest. This connection with the animal world and his fascination with nature have marked his life.

Nicolas discovered his passion for photography when he gave his wife a camera as a present and began to explore the subject more intensively. His first shots of nature captured his interest and never let him go. Since then, photography has been an important part of his life and his pictures are a gift to all of us, thanks to his wife, and an enrichment for those who are lucky enough to see his impressive animal photographs.

His photographs are often close-up portraits of animals and are characterised by their richness of detail. However, the documentary nature of his work fades into the background as he focuses on the creativity and atmosphere of the animals. Colours harmonise, a skilful play of sharpness and blur creates spatial depth, and different perspectives add excitement and variety.
