  • Whenever I edit my shots (mainly cropping and playing with the tone curve) I used either Capture NX2 or Lightroom.

    To create panoramas I use Photoshop CS6. And for HDR the great Aurora HDR Pro.

    I often use filters in Lightroom to add a bit of fun to my images...

  • So, I've been spending many months in the field following hyaenas, lions and other species.

    Then I've been spending quite a lot of time in front of a computer screen trying to make sense of all the data collected.

    Since I started working in Hwange, in February 2008 for my Master's, a number of publications came up. You can check my Google Scholar page to read all the interesting stuff we found!

    I'm also on ResearchGate and Twitter now...

    Two of my pictures even made the journal covers (Behavioral Ecology & Journal of Zoology) we published in:

  • I use 2 Nikon camera bodies: D700 and D90. I almost exclusively shoot in the aperture priority mode and in RAW.

    Most of the animal pictures were taken with the D700 coupled with a 300mm f2.8 Nikon.  In addition, I have the teleconverter TC-20E III that I'll try out for the first time in Africa during my upcoming 2 months trip.

    Landscapes were taken either with the D700 and a 14-24mm f2.8 Nikon or the D90 with a 16-85mm Nikon.

    Night pictures were taken with the D700, a 70-300mm Sigma, a SB900 Nikon Flash and with additional lighting (red or yellow spotlights).

    I do very little editing of my pics, but when I do it's usually  croping, adjusting exposure, WB and histogram and D-lighting.

  • Ok, I guess somewhere in my blog, my name should appear right??

    So, here we go. I'm Stephanie Periquet, French, born (in 1985) and raised in Grenoble, Isere. I've always loved nature and wildlife and completely fell in love with Africa during a trip to Namibia in 1999. Since then, I walked towards my dream: working and living there!

    I managed to find a research project on zebras for my Master in Hwange with the HERD Project (LBBE, UCB Lyon1, France). I never really left Zim since. I completed my PhD on the coexistence between Spotted hyaenas and Lions in July 2014.


    Who I am, where I come from, where do I go...


    If we put aside data collection and scientific work, my PhD job was actually to do game drives every day and night. That definitely offers a lot of photogrpahic opportunities.

    If you want to contact me, about Hwange, Zim or about my pictures (not free of rights by the way...),  here is my email address:
