31 years old Professional photographer, from Yvelines, Stanley Leroux travels the world to very different theaters of operations. In summer, he shoots motorsport competitions, especially for a major manufacturer motorcycle. In winter he traveled alone in distant lands, where he practices a wildlife photography and dramatic and poetic nature, contemplative and creative, in the sumptuous lands draws by elements, lighted sun sometimes, temperamental and sharp, sometimes overbearing and blinding. Representing a new generation of wildlife photographers, Stanley takes the risk of not making the one about his animal pictures, and puts the photographic challenge first: before the representation of an object, photograph is first an object in itself. It thus escapes the shackles naturalistic, and imposes an authentic look author.
Also graphic and broken digital techniques Stanley Leroux is a complete artist, and has the means full independence. He created his own publishing house, through which he published not only his work but also those of colleagues who share his approach to photography. He also realizes itself Layout and graphic design of the published works, and control the entire chain of production of its photos, shooting to online sale . This is what we call a modern photographer!

To borders of the Atlantic Ocean beyond the furious 50th , the archipelago of the Falkland (Malvinas also called) recites the 750 islands and small islands that make up the ultimate rampart before a world of snow and ice. Last inhabited island territory before the Antarctic circle, this storm earth is a misunderstood natural paradise sanctuary for many species. In this harsh world, far from human presence, penguins and seabirds face the elements in turn sets in turn made of desolation or enchantment ...
During multiple stays alone over four years, Stanley Leroux lived to the rhythm of his feathered guests in search of authenticity on their wilderness. His gaze is guided by heaven and light, full actors of his photographic universe. Cultivating an approach and a special respect for the natural light, it is played from the sun or lack to create alternately warm and dramatic atmospheres, transcribing a duality in the image of the islands. With a singular reading of contrast and color, it restores the play of light offered by this archipelago alternating harshness and softness.
