Apart from some links I put on animals photographers's websites of which I appreciate the work, I have decided in this article to make you share my interest for my favourite animal photographers who have really exceptional aptitudes regarding their whole pictures and who have above all photographed my favourite animals : bears.

I would like to begin with one of my favourite photographer : Louis-Marie Préau

Louis- Marie Préau : an "angevin" animal photographer

Born in the area of Angers, Louis-Marie Préau was interested when he was young in nature then in photography.He began as a professionnal photographer in 2001 and can put his aptitude to help associations for the preservation of nature.He realized some reports in specialized magazines like 'Terre Sauvage" " chasseurs d'images".

He is with Laurent Nedelec, the author of the photographs of the book "Live with the bear" from Farid Benhammou.

It's in Croatia, Finland and Slovenia that he realized brown bears photographs.

I present you in a few words, Remo Savisaar with whom I have exchanged emails to obtain the permission to publish this article.I adore his wonderful pictures taken by this young photographer, especially his pictures of bears and foxes.

Remo was born in 1978 in Tartu in Estonia. He started taking nature pictures in 2005 and has been doing it since then for the last three years. At first it was more like a hobby but now, it's his fulltime job.
