Passionate about wildlife and wild nature from an early age, Bastien began working in ornithology before supervising stays in participatory science in Kyrgyzstan on the study of the snow leopard. He then passed the mountain guide diploma which allows him to supervise naturalist stays all year round in Kyrgyzstan but also in Ladakh and Mongolia. Very attached to the pastoral world, Bastien also worked seasonally for 10 years as a shepherd in the Alps and in Provence. Photography has accompanied him since the beginning, but it is the wide open spaces of Central Asia, its animal species and its fascinating peoples that remain his favorite subject.
