It all began more than thirty years ago: a childhood rocked by distant travels, the stories of great explorers, in the midst of world maps and 16mm film rushes, then the discovery of silver and silver photography. of the dark room ... The dice were launched to give me the taste of the adventure and the image.

The cases have never left me. But fifteen years in the world of large companies, in France and abroad - including several years in South America - made me feel the need to slow down the course of my life to find my first wonders, and the ability to observe and decipher our world to make it more intimate.

Photography, which until then had naturally and discreetly accompanied me, suddenly took a more important place. I took a step by perfecting myself at the Gobelins School of Image.

Today freelance lifestyle and family photographer, I share myself between Paris, the Mediterranean, Brittany and long journeys, which remain a great passion and source of inspiration.

If the subjects that I approach are multiple, my images are linked by the same approach: a permanent curiosity, the search for sensitive and harmonious compositions, and particular attention granted to the benevolent exchange, that allows the love of the reportage.
