Gérard Verdier

Gerard is captivated by movement and has an eye for capturing wildlife in motion — that instant where the animal is at its most striking. His early days as an acclaimed sports photographer were a training ground for seizing the moment when the opportunity for a great image is fleeting.

An inspirational teacher, Gerard will teach you how to portray the beauty of the bird in its surroundings and he really is a pleasure to work with.

Widely travelled and published in many publications, Gerard exhibits internationally at the Festival International De Namur, Belgium and the Festival International De La Photo Animalière, France.

Like Thierry, with whom he often works, Gerard believes that to have good equipment is an advantage, but a passion for your subject is more important.

His equipment is a Canon mark IV; a Canon 5D; Lenses 100-400/4,5-5,6; 200/1,8; 24-105/4; 20-35/2,8; Tripod – monopod MANFROTTO; Canon flash 580EX, extender 1,4.
