As a kid, I was always attracted by 2 things : Arts and science. When time came to choose a path for studies, science seemed to be the wisest choice. I dropped my pencils and brushes and switched them for a computer to become an IT/Telecommunication engineer. (Connecting the dots, I believe those skills are still very relevant now as I’m not afraid of technology : taking pictures has a very important scientific and technical side).
After 3 years working as a consultant, I decided to take a year off to travel the world.
‘I wish that all of nature’s magnificence, the emotion of the land, the living energy of place could be photographed.’
– Annie Leibovitz
I then felt the need to capture and document everything. First, to share my journey with friends and family, then to get better at photography. My creativity and my artistic inner child were reaching out, and I realised how much I missed it.
Along with my traveling, I met my wife Sara, and I promised her I would take her to the most romantic place in the world : Bora Bora.
When we arrived to the French Polynesia in 2010, the intention was to only stay for one month. However, something about the surrounding crystal-blue ocean, seemingly endless sunshine and the carefree vibe made it hard to leave.
3 years later, I couldn’t restrain my passion any longer and I turned it into my new job. I became a full time photographer. I hope to inspire, create, teach, learn and grow in this space and my wish is for you to join me on the ride.
A new passion came into my life : I am now father of 2 girls, 6 years old Maeva and 2 years old Maimiti. They inspire me. They teach me how to be in the moment, be 100% present, to capture spontaneity, authenticity, candid and natural moments. They also make me want to stop time as the grow so fast. And what a better way to doing than taking their pictures!
Having a good connection with you, a clear understanding of what you like and don’t like is essential. The first thing I do is to listen. Listen to what you have planned and what your vision is. I LOVE to meet couples with fresh, fun ideas that I can wrap my creative mind around.
Bora Bora is an experience and your portraits should be as well. Real moments mean more than posing you on the other side of my lens. I want to capture your love. Capturing raw emotions as they happen is what I’m all about. I love the little moments, the real moments. That one glance. The special bond between people.
