BIOGRAPHY

As an instinctive photographer, I have always been inspired by the whims of nature and human behaviours for most of my personal artistic projects. It is a way of submitting to the forces of nature and of paying close attention to human beings and their actions. The contemplation of everything around me becomes more intense behind my lens.

I was trained as a film photographer and I now work with digital cameras, but I have not forgotten the magic of films and film development. I produce photographic reports and also write articles in the press, while spending as much time as possible on my personal artistic projects.

I travel as often as I can and choose my destinations according to my photographic aspirations. For some years, I have been working on the consequences of tourism and the impact of man on nature. Beyond the artistic dimension, photography is a reference, so there is a genuine responsibility.

COMMENT

I used to work with Nikon cameras. I switched to Fuji with the X100S. I was definitely seduced by the main controls on the camera body, its compactness, sturdiness as well as by its sharp images – I quickly turned to Fuji for 100% of my work.

When it was released, I had the opportunity to use the X-T2 in Iceland: robust, quick and accurate, with a significant increase in resolution, this new camera meets and even exceeds all of my expectations! The ergonomics of this new camera are extremely good and even better with the Booster Grip. The harsh Icelandic weather and the forces of nature did not intimidate my X-T2 which demonstrated exemplary reliability. Lastly, although the autofocus was truly put to the test, it was impressively accurate (in thick fog, for example). In short, the X-T2 is the perfect companion for all photographers who need speed, robustness and accuracy in a compact design.
