SPEED FLYERS

Ghislain Simard has developed special photographic techniques designed to freeze the fastest action of the insect world . He worked with the Hasselblad design department in Sweden to develop a hyper reactive camera and is equipped with special high-voltage flash units that allow a exposure time of only 1/111,000s ! "Speed ​​Flyers" is the result of the use of this equipment during five years in many French regions.

4K PROJECT

Thanks to their brightness and pin sharp pictures, the new 4K televisions allow a direct view of the original image, on very large displays, and provide the same rendering than slides during the analog film age.

MICROMAGIC

The parallel approaches of Stephen and Ghislain converge when we discover their new work: images of such extraordinary quality that they can only be truly appreciated in large prints.

DRAGONFLY

The human eye is incapable of seeing the wonders that nature has created in turning dragonflies into real aerial acrobats. We are totally unable to see their synchronised wing-beats as they’re simply too fast.

HUNTING

 

IN FLIGHT

As they spend a large part of their lives in the air, butterflies are the flying flowers of nature! However, the aerial acrobatics of butterflies are so fast that it is not possible to observe them with our eyes.

BUTTERFLY

He have discovered the world of high-speed photography in the Book "Caught in Motion" written by the English photographer Stephen Dalton. It was in the middle of the eighties, and it changed my photographic work for ever.
