Moi

BIO

After starting the photo at age 13, I integrated at the age of 20, The Ecole des Métiers de l'Image des Gobelins in Paris, to attend a training course in advertising photography. I started my business in 1998 and I worked in Paris for 6 years, for make-up artists, stylists, and in music in particular.

Here are some examples of regular publications in the Press: Dépêche Mode, Marie-Claire Maison, ELLE, Télérama, Rolling Stone France, Trax, Groove, Ragga, Rocksound, etc .

I produced portraits of more than 200 internationally renowned music groups ( Jane Birkin,  Joey Starr, Norah Jones, Femi Kuti, Placebo, Destiny's Child, Israel Vibration, TLC, Tété, Diam's, Cranberries, Annie Lennox, De la Soul, White Stripes, Motorhead ....), in France, England and very regularly in the United States.

Installed in Bordeaux, since 2004, I continue the photos of music and singers (with the Shaman Studio), and open my field of activities in the world of Wine (illustration domains, winery / vat room / tasting room, portraits, reports manual work, bottles in atmospheres or in pack-shot, food pairing, macro terroir, etc ...) for large vineyards, including several Grands Crus Classified throughout the region.

I became the official photographer of the Cité du Vin, and I contributed to their visual identity since 2015. My images are present in all the press, the brochures of the City, their website, etc. Other fields are also part of my photographic activities, as for institutions such as The Departemental Council of Gironde, the Domaine de MALAGAR, the Communauté d'Agglomération du Grand Dax, but also a whole range of companies (see list of customers).

Photos of portraits and events are also made for individuals, and I use my professional know-how to make aesthetic and unforgettable all the private moments.

My Philosophy

QUALITY, POSITIVITY, SIMPLICITY, AUTHENTICITY

My story :

The pursuit of happiness has always been my motivation. My most important effort is to capture and share with others the positive elements of life. To observe, to be patient, to keep an open mind, to grasp all that is beautiful and the best that people has to offer, will always be my goal.

3 specialties:

- Priority to the positive aspects.
- Great attention to harmony of colors
- Very graphic macro detail photos.

Operation :

I use the techniques of studio lights in reportage, that is to say that I mix a visual testimony and an aesthetic enhancement. Depending on the situation, I will use the natural light, or add studio flash lights, to create the most appropriate result. My aim is to represent the authenticity of your work or location, to keep it genuine, and to bring out its best qualities.

Availability :

Answers to emails and requests for quotations are made as quickly as possible, usually by the same day or in less than 48h. We can schedule a pre-production meeting, on location, before the shooting, if necessary.

My assets :

My attention to detail while being aware of the essentials, my empathy and my great patience, my involvement in your project, humanly and artistically, my determination to seek a wide variety of angles, perspectives, my search for beauty in everything.

Post-production :

All the photos are retouched in high and low resolution. Each image is sublimated, cropped if necessary, refined. I do not apply any transformations that could distort the subject, but each photo is finalized to be very clean. Some are transformed in black and white, some are in panoramic size. This final step is very important because it is like the delicious sauce which comes to sublimate a good dish !

Delivery delay :

If the pictures taken are those of an event, I can deliver a selection of 10 photos retouched, 24h or 48h after. Otherwise, the usual delay is 20 days (it can be modified if depending on my planning). I work alone and it is often tricky to give a fixed time, because I have many requests arriving at the last moment, but I always do the best, communicating with you.

My rates :

By choice, I do not put rates online, the quotations are made according to your needs, and the work that it represents. I work with a package that varies depending on the use that will be made of the images, according to the distance  and according to the time spent taking pictures and touch-ups.
