“Here’s a few things you might want to read in order to know me better than before !

– PHOTOGRAPHY : I love taking pictures. Photography is my second wife ! lol I shoot a bit of everything, but my favourite subjects are the human beings. I love to capture the eyes, faces, emotions, life … I’ve never taken any photo lessons and I’ve never been in any photographic schools. But don’t worry I’ve read the manual of my Nikon !!! 😉

– TRAVELING : This is my first wife. I’m still in love with travelling and together we’ve already been over more than 50 countries (including India, Burma, Iran, Japan, Pakistan, Syria, Georgia, Kenya … ) If you want to discover more about my travels, you can check out my documentary photography website.

– HUMANIST : a lot of my friends told me I am this kind of guy. That’s probably why I keep focusing on taking photos of human beings.

– ROCK ON : Yeah !!! I love Rock n Roll but that’s not the point here. I’m really keen on partying and always ready to spend some time with my friends.

– PHYSICAL and SPORT EDUCATION : Nothing to do with photography but I need to tell you that I got a master degree in physical and sport education.I was even about to become a sport teacher in France. So if you’re interested in a portrait session, be ready to run, jump and play. 🙂

– LOVE LIFE : I am a positive person who enjoys all the little things life is giving everyday. Life is amazing and life is very short too ! – FOOD : a delicious mix between filet de boeuf “Rossini” and junk food like Pringles and Coke.

– SHOOTING STYLE : It’s like Mac Gyver meeting Nikki Larson ! 😉 I hope my style is fresh, real and fun !!!
