My name is Philippe Lacombe. I am 35 years old. I live near Grenoble in France.

Why this site

When I was young, I always saw my father taking pictures especially mountain photos and flower close-ups.
Ever since he retired from his professional activities, he spends most of his time taking animal photos. You can see his personnal work in his web site alpes-sauvages
He gave me the taste of making photo.
Step by step I began to take pictures. When my son was born, I bought a Nikon CoolPix 885, three years later, I bought a Pentax Optio S5i but during all this years I was quite frustrated not to be able to do what I really wanted.
So I bought a digital reflex.
Now I can see the difference and I want to progress. So Why this site? To expose my work and get some feedback on it.

Feel free to comment or write me if you have any question.
