Q & A
How would you describe your photographic style? Do you follow a set of rules when you shoot?
For wildlife pictures, I try to take photos that reflect an emotion : eyes contact, tenderness, specifically position. I like to have a nice bokeh (soft background) so I use each time it’s possible a large exposure.
Any photographers you particularly admire?
Vincent Munier. It’s a great French polar wildlife photographer.
What inspires you to shoot?
Nature, wildlife and ethnic pictures.
What advice would you give to aspiring photographers?
- have a good knowledge of the camera and techniques
- be patient
- take the photos in the soft lights
- know what to speak about
Where do you currently live and work?
I live in « Draguignan » a small town in South of France. But there is not much wildlife so I go around the world to meet animals and people.
What did you study – and how I got into photography?
I made journalisme studies and image techniques
Any cool projects you’re currently working on?
A photo project on big apes throughout the world
