I live in the small village of Cruet, near a small city called Chambéry in the French Alps.
I've always been interested in traveling, outdoor sports and storytelling. But I didn't imagine that one day I would be able to find a way to mix these passions in the same job.
I first started to work as a geographer, trying to work outside as often as I could. Then I quit and decided to earn a living using my passions. I first learned photography by myself in low light conditions in concert halls. Then, when I used my humble skills in the mountains it was like a great game. I discovered up there the power and creativity of the light!
I have been a pro-photographer at Montagnes Magazine for five years and chief-editor of this magazine for two and a half years. Working for this mountain outdoor sports magazine is the best way to meet adventurers, alpinists, climbers, and skiers in order to tell their stories with my words and photographs.
On the other hand, I am also passionate about documentary and social photography. I did several photo reports on gypsies in Kosovo, young kids in the Bulgarian mountains and refugees in the north of France. I use a Leica M9 35mm for these reports, which is another way of shooting. This second passion is completely different, but this is also another adventure.
