Nature is both creative and a muse. She is a source of stimulation, inspiration, discoveries, design and creation. To capture breathtaking new perspectives on the Nature, there is nothing better than flying above her. I deeply think we should all do with a bit more of Rothko’s principles in our way to photograph: insisting on the primacy of raw emotion, to push the boundaries of form and colors to make photo appear as "painting-like" as possible. "A painting is not a picture of an experience, it is an experience." – Mark ROTHKO My photos were taken afore the National Park of Camargue, in Southern France, abroad an ULM.

I am an artist painter and self-taught photographer. Born in Versailles and a native of Brittany - France. I work in Geneva – Switzerland.
I really enjoy having the flexibility of stretching my wings, in order to explore all the moments that life has to offer to photography.
I am specialized in capturing “the moment” in the course of life, more than fixed times. When I am taking photos, I have usually no expectations. I go fishing and I don't know what I will find.
To catch the decisive second that will make my photographs entrancing, when the moment is captured, causing an emotion, is my ultimate objective.
My ambition: to be witness of my time, to anticipate events with news photos, to inform the public and to raise awareness, with ethics.
