Photographer Of The Week – Mehd Halaouate

This is my resurrected weekly series in which I will introduce a professional photographer who specializes in bird/wildlife photography.  I hope that you will be inspired by their work!   Mehd is not only an extremely talented photographer, he is also a personal friend of mine, I just wish I had half his talent!

Mehd used to work as a manager at Volvo, but now works as the program director  for World Parrot Trust in Indonesia. He is also working for Begawan Foundation with breeding Bali Starlings and managing their breeding station in central Bali.
He has been interested in birds since he was a little boy, growing up in Morocco.

We work with Canon cameras and Canon or Sigma lenses.

Mehd uses:
Camera: Canon 50D.
Lenses: Canon 100-400 IS USM, Sigma 105/2.8 Macro, Canon APO Teleconverter 1.4x EX, Sigma APO Teleconverter 2.0x EX
Flash: Canon Speedlite 540EZ

To protect his copyright, I will highlight some of the galleries on his website, please use the links below.
