I'm a French guy who lives in Andorra. I’ve always said I'm lucky when the first shot is good. But this is normal if your first camera was the old parental Yashica from the 70s!
After working in the snowboard industry, I was chief editor for a French online MTB magazine. It was a pretty cool experience, working with the best French riders was so sweet and easy.
Now, I'm working for a bike company, in the marketing department. It's so cool to shoot just for fun and only on exciting projects. One more time, I'm lucky.
The most interesting part of a job in mountain biking photography is working with talented people. Every year, a young ripper is coming through and pushing everyone to work harder. This is what I'm trying to do, without pressure and discreetly.
The most interesting aspect of a sports picture is the action, the right action in the right place with good light. This specific moment is impossible to duplicate, the best picture is often the first one, or second, with natural attitude and the lucky time. Always lucky.
I'm so proud to be in the Red Bull Illume contest and I'm hoping you enjoy all of the amazing photos this contest highlights.
