Dear IFWP members

The new board is now officially approved by a large number of positive votes and we are very gratefull to you all for participating and also for giving us a chance to work for this stage we start together.


We are very excited and plenty of ideas to share knowledge, places, activities, friendship...


Our intention is to make the Federation an useful tool for all, to make it participative, with improvements in the website, consulting our members about those things which are important for our future.


Any individual member interested in cooperating as volunteer will have the chance to get involved in our committees, where ideally many photographers will invest little time in the week.


Our first committees starting in short time will be:


-Social nets: Website and facebook.
-Conservation: This committee has already a coordinator and a vice with first proposals to start working. Individuals from all associations members will be welcome to our list IFWP-Conservation.
-Online teaching: High quality formation online for all our members in a web section specially designed for downloading power points and PDF´s.
-Commented pictures: A team to choose in our next open facebook pictures selected for their quality and deeply commented.
-Sponsors: This committee will effort in finding new ways to make our own projects a reality.

All the information from the IFWP will be sent via e-mail to our delegates, uploaded as news on our website (http://www.ifwp-photo.org) and also shared in our fanpage (https://www.facebook.com/internationalfederationofwildlifephotography/)

SYLVIE SEVELLEC-TEPHANY ASCPF - FRANCE

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I was born on the Peninsula of Crozon (Finistère, France) which is my paradise. Having spent my entire youth, surrounded by the countryside and marine environments, I am now back to my "roots", photographing. I do not seek the rare or exclusive species, but through my images, I try to share intense moments with all. To observe and photograph a squirrel, rabbit, deer or hare, a starling or sandpiper, an insect or a seascape ... gives me complete satisfaction.

VTNÖ

VEREIN FÜR TIER-UND NATURFOTOGRAFIE ÖSTERREICH

 

Six dedicated nature photographers founded the VTNÖ (Association for Animal and Nature Photography Austria) in 1988. Nowadays we count about 100 members throughout Austria. To communicate the beauty and uniqueness of nature to interested people is probably the most important objective of the VTNÖ. We further support projects and photo documentations of NGOs dealing with nature conservation.

Mother Mice tell Daddy mice to care for the pups

Mice are non-monogamous in the wild. But when lab mice are housed together with their mates and  pups for a few days, otherwise uninterested fathers can be induced to provide parental care to the pups by ultrasound vocalizations and/or odour emitted by the mothers.

Today, the trail of the pioneers of animal photography will lead us to an encounter with the smaller of wildlife representatives: to the world of insects. A universe which, as you will see, created a lot of problems for our ancestors ...
