" My passion for colors and movement come to me from great photographer Ernst Haas. The freshness of its glance, its capacity to communicate its emotion through its technical choices and the share of the chance in its images made me become aware of the infinite possibilities of expression in photography. Later, the work of Eric Valli, Roland and Sabrina Michaud or Olivier Föllmi, to quote only them, strongly impressed me by their manner of showing insights of a culture in all its dignity "


Travel photography fascinates me because it makes it possible to approach a culture in all its diversity. What led me to work on the architecture and the landscape photography as much as the human one. I also have a passion for the expression of the movement in all its forms.

On the technical side, I try as much as possible not to have any " personal style ". For me, the technique, the effects and even aesthetics must be used initially to drag on, to retain people in the image. Even on assignements, I try to reveal more than to show, capture the spirit or the magic of a place rather than his formal appearance.

Specialized in architecture. The details, the small things which give sense and direction to the whole piece.

" When I work on a photo feature, I tackle my subject without any preconceived idea. I do not seek to compose or stage pictures, I take time to impregnate me, to immerse me completely into my subject, if it is a monument, for example, I go round of it, tirelessly, under various lights, until the good images finally come out ". I feel always, I can come out with a better photograph and I try it again.
