Advertising studies in Paris when I was 18-20 years old, but I quickly let the idea down to be an “inside photographer”, by hanging my medium format camera into the famous climbing cliffs around the world for 10 years. I have begun my professional career as a mountaineering and climbing photographer. Then I came back into the wild with a large format camera. Won 3 World Press Photo contests in nature category, and published 14 books. Then I have plunged into the magic volcano world. I’m still there! That’s all folks!
Photography both drives my own life and serves as a pretext for exploring life at large. Getting emotions and strong feelings during shots is as much important as taking photos back home. All my life and my mind is all about photography, as well as family life. I travel and work most of the time with my wife Bernadette and Fanny, our 9 year old daughter and my little assistant!
100% of the profits from my work goes to support Wild Wonders of Europe.
