ABOUT

I started as a self-taught photographer at the age of fifteen with an Olympus SZ-10-type camera.
For my early stages with this camera, my main subject then was macrophotography, as I needed to learn the bases of photography from courses and tutorials on the web. A few years later, I invested on a Canon 600d box to gain more experience. At that stage I realized I had a passion for marine landscape photography, which was to become my favorite theme.

All along my visits in European cities such as Berlin, London, Paris, New York and Venice, I discovered the pleasure of travelling on my own and concentrating entirely on different cultures, hoping to share my experience and my pictures.

Urban and architectural photos also inspire me. I like to admire a town awaking in the early morning, and walk in the city still drowsy. Thus I can catch the best lights. I also spend a lot of time on ‘Photoshop’ and ‘Lightroom’ to polish up my picture, create an atmosphere and try and share an emotion.

In 2015 I took a photography course at the Wazemmes Center of Arts in Lille, and met a number of professional photographers who taught me to set my themes, like “Humans”, part of which were displayed at the “Labo3G” gallery in Lille in October 2017, like “Movements” shown at the Wazemmes Center of Arts, and “Shore” which aimed at showing a series in long pose on a theme called “between sea and rock”.

In the future I wish to present my work in various galleries, and travel around the world in search of original themes linking technique and photographic creativity.
