What does photography mean to you? For me it's a moment that will go through time, when I take a photo, I don't take it for tomorrow, but for the years that will bring it to life
Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers. My style is mainly based on light, I'm talking about light made in the studio or outdoors and not light made with Photoshop of course Where do you get inspiration from? I don't know, let's say that some title phrases come to mind and here I build the photo with of course the appropriate model Studio, on location or both? I work in my studio, but sometimes in a natural setting
Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional? I have the status of Author photographer. I have just released a photo book sold in all bookstores in France but which you can get on amazon. The book is "Remettre les pendules à l'heure"
