Can you tell us a little about you?

I am a Franco-Italian photographer based in London. I was born in France and grew up in a

bilingual family. I have travelled to many countries throughout my life and my passion for

travel came with my love for imagery and photography. I first started to photograph

landscape and architecture. Then, I photographed people and their emotions. I have now

built a business around my passion for photography. I am a part-time professional

photographer and my work has been recently recognized by Vogue Italia.

shades of grey and the different contrasts between black and white. I strive to keep a classy,

elegant and sharp style.

 

Where do you get inspiration from?

I get inspiration from my daily life, magazines and social media.
