Hi, french photographer Ark. Us.

Hey !

I'm Ark. Us. ( Julia Bénard for my real name ) and I'm from south of France ( bad english !).

I have a Pentax K-5 II with :
- 18- 55mm
- 70-300 mm sigma
- 100mm macro pentax f/2.8
- 120-400mm sigma

I'm found of nature, animals, macro and sometimes human portraits ( but with animals most of the time....)
I love colors and emotion. I'm also a graphic designer and an artist inspired by abstract and pop art. Sometimes I do black and white photography to highlight the emotion ( or if I don't like the background, it happens).

I take pictures in zoo or parks because I don't have enough money to go on a safari ( too bad ).
Hope you'll like my work.

Hello and welcome! That is some wonderful work, thanks for sharing

I'm no artist, but I am a safari addict and very much enjoy wildlife photography! If you ever get a chance to go on a safari, then go!

Welcome! Have a grandpa in south of France. But thankfully he speaks Dutch as my French is terrible. Am planning to visit him during the summer. Lovely photo's.
