Jacques-André Dupont receives a Silver Award at Tokyo International Foto Awards

April 8, 2018

For the second year in a row, Jacques-André Dupont images get a whole lot of recognition at the Tokyo International Foto Awards as one of his images received the silver award in the nature-wildlife category.  And on top of this, 12 of his images received a honorary mention.

 

 

 

Jacques-André tells the story of Hunter, the silver award winning image

 

I am thrilled that the jury recognized this image, as this is one of my favourite wildlife moment of 2017. 

 

I took this photo during my last South Africa trip when I spend some time in Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve (at the Nkorho Bush Lodge which I recommend without hesitation!).

 

Sabi Sand is a perfect place to find and photograph formidable and elusive leopards. And I got to see quite a few... This photo was taken as a beautiful young female was hunting.  It is so impressive to see them hunt: focussed and in stealth mode.

 

It very early in the morning, with little light and this leopard was moving very, very slowly in tall grass.  So it was somewhat of a challenging shot.  I had to override the focus to go passed the grass and lock on the animal.  But in the end, I was really happy with the image as we do get the feeling of the animal in full hunting mode. I wanted the image to be in black and white for the raw feeling it would create.
