About this site


I am a New York-based photographer and writer with a resilient addiction to outdoors, travels and adventure

 

Born in Canada, raised in the south of France and having spent a good chunk of my adult life in the Caribbean, I’ve had many an opportunity to flirt with our world and its most amazingly diverse scenery.

My love of photography goes back to the day I got my hands on my first camera at age twelve, a second-hand Zeiss Ikon rangefinder. Ever since, I have chased light everywhere I go, in a patient attempt to record through my photography the essence of so many places in which I keep leaving a little bit of myself.

I find it most extraordinary to look back and witness the exponential growth of a photography industry that had been almost dormant for decades and has suddenly exploded in a frenzy of technological breakthroughs. This is a fantastic time to be a photographer.

I probably enjoy traveling with my camera in hand and my wife Marie close by more than anything else in life (Apart from paragliding, of course. And scuba diving. And building computers. And James Bond movies. And Clairette de Die. And Tolkien’s books. And tinkering with my web site.)

Different countries and cultures keep the mind curious and the senses alert. And when our mind is open, the world becomes a never-ending spectacle begging to be photographed, a swirling story unfolding around us and to which we can never be indifferent. My impulse is to tell that story, in pictures and in words, hoping to find an angle that will captivate and inspire.

The pictures in these galleries reflect my path to this day, about seventeen years of evolution since my conversion to digital photography.
