Welcome on my website!
My name is Olivier Mognard. I am a 29-year-old French photographer. I’ve been living in Medicine Hat, AB, Canada since August 2015, and I’ve been travelling throughout the surroundings a lot!
I enjoy hiking in the Nature, and I try to reveal its beauties through Macro, Wildlife & Landscape photography. I also like to support the community by photographing their sport events, such as the Alberta Games or stampedes.
In 2016, I did a photo project called “366squares“: I’ve challenged myself to shoot (and share!) 1 photo each and every day of the year. Each photo also had to be squared, as I was not used to shoot that way before. Hence the name of the project! Most of the photos were shot in the Medicine Hat area. But you’ll also see photos I took on my trips to the Canadian Rockies (Waterton, Banff, Jasper, Yoho, Kootenay), Yellowstone & Glacier NP, British Columbia & Saskatchewan provinces, the Yukon territory, etc.
My 2017 Project was a 52 challenge organized by (french) discussion forum EOS-Numérique. Each week a new theme was released and I had to shoot 1 photo that fits the theme!
