Photographs

As a child, I wanted to be a forest ranger ... My parents practiced photography. I remember their lab in a sort of cubicle in the apartment with its red light and the smell of products. This desire for a profession in nature led me to study forestry and management of natural environments. Then, one thing leading to another, working for several years as an environmental coordinator, and finally a mountain guide from 2003. During all this time, photography has always been with me. In my bag, there was often my case of the moment just in case .... It's true that it weighs, but the time spent outside, alone or with groups, made it possible to take the photos presented here , as well as many others. Self-taught, my favorite subjects are landscape and macro photography. From 2008 I started to collaborate with an agency specializing in nature photography and environmental subjects, resulting in publications to illustrate books, diaries, magazines, calendars ... nature photography, this meeting between the moment, the light and the place which combine to give a unique image which will always be different; a new story that I remember for every shot. This infinite variety of situations regularly calls into question my practice of photography, and still gives me a glimpse of many years of learning and discovery.
