1984, France, a family holiday.
I was a kid and we were just outside of Arles, our hotel was crawling with people coming and going, holding cameras and sometimes "shooting at stuff".

That one day I was wearing a funny cap and this woman asked my mom (and me) if it was ok to take my portrait in front of a white wall.
We said yes, it sparked my love for photography, I was hooked.
1985, birthday present: my first camera.
1993, graduating from photography school and setting up as freelance.
I worked in the fields of advertising, press and corporate photography on a variety of subjects such as automotive, portraits, live music, commercials, travels.
2020, the pandemic, the inevitable lockdown, a fresh start.
I decided to backup all my digital files and delete my catalog.

Today I concentrate on my personal projects.
