After having learnt how to watch the light with my first mentor at the University of le Havre, I stayed a long time with no camera. 

Then, I started digital photography courses at "Atelier Obscura" in Belgium which delivered strong basics by my second mentor, Frederic Pauwels, a well-known photo reporter.

Following a free-time to continue to build experience on my own, I decided to reconnect with evening courses at "Atelier Contraste" in Brussels, especially to get in touch with my third mentor, André Soupart, for whom the photography language brings another dimension. Indeed, he basically learnt me the shape and the meaning as well. André is definitely someone who made a mark on me.

From now, I focus on testimony and landscape. My love for B&W photos is noticeable but I have begun to be interested in colors. 

Long time exposure remains one of my favorite way to slow down the watch and to gaze tremendous Celtic sceneries particularly in Scotland, Ireland and Brittany.

Although the digital era brought me so much, I recently gathered spare pieces to build an Hasselblad and I am started to experience film camera again. Life is a never end story.
