Why am I specifying my nationality, well because even if I've spent a lot of time abroad, most of my initial photographic work was based in France. I have started by wildlife photography, mainly bird orientated, and also sport photography focusing on handball games.
These days I'm graduatelly moving to new fields. With my scientific education, I have developped a taste for new experiences/experiments and I'm adopting the same approach with photography, challenging myself to try new "techniques" and go deeper into the world of the "8ème art".
I hope you'll enjoy some of this work.

Lot of work again as the thesis submission is finally approaching,... "Intention to submit" form has been filled in and planned for end of November,... Does not feel real, except for the stress that is building up gradually. Good thing, I'm compensating the rising stress level by doing sport and photography and even better sport-photography. Also I've done two little projects using flash lights to improve my lighting skills (still a lot to do...)
Long Time, No see...
Woaw, almost 3 weeks without posting anything. Unfortunately, I had to put the camera on the side for a bit and do some proper work on my PhD... I had the opportunity to use my camera to do a bit of birding and some handball shooting last Saturday to drop the pressure,...
First Wedding and nearly 3000 pics... with Franck Oinne
Wow, first real "professional" event for me. I have been involved in sport events in the past but that never implied so much personal pressure on the outcome. Here it was all about immortalizing one of the most imortant day of two perfect strangers. Luckily I was helped by the amazing Franck Oinne who has been doing this for years and is an experienced professionnal wedding photographer. (is website HERE). Today I'm telling everything about that first incredible experience.
(Poor) Wildlife & Handball week...
Very quite week in terms of wildlife observations despite several trips to different locations to try to find something decent to shoot. Therefore I came back to basics with some handball photography over the weekend. It felt good to see the boys play with their new team.
B-Day Celebration in the "Beaujolais" region
07.09.18 - 09.09.18 - I moved away for a weekend a bit further north for the 30th B-Day celebration of Clementine. A great occasion to catch up with some old friends. Also a good opportunity to have a look at the regional species. Overall a very good weekeed mixing, nature, sport, drinking, friends and obviously photography.
Before The Wedding
31.08.2018 & 01.09.2018 - The boys and myself all gathered to the "Pantouquet", a beautiful domain lost in the "Montagne Noire", for an ultimate night before Christophe's (aka Titou) wedding. Under the supervision of Christian (aka the Godfather), and around a nice BBQ, a pool and a jacuzzi we've managed to keep our futur groom relaxed before the Big Day.
First "Urbex" session
30.08.2018 - Another early morning (6.30 A.M.), all my gear are packed up and ready to go. I'm meeting Thierry at the entrance of the small village of Flour and we are back on the road to meet up Florian. After changing car and loading all our equipment we are heading North in direction of the "Montagne Noire" (literally the Black Mountain)...
Finding the Flamingo
25.08.2018 - Wake up at 4.00 A.M, quick breakfast, loading gear in the boot of the car and here we go on the road to Gruissan. Main goal is to arrive before the sunrise to take position while the birds are not to active.
