Q&A

-How did you first become involved in the creative industry?

Who knows why but my only goal since I was a child was to travel. Nobody in my family had been abroad outside of France. For me the world was the playground I should go to. So when my brother started to be interested by photography, I followed him at the local club. Later my mother started to work in a local newspaper and my brother studied journalism. Here is how it all started.

-What words best describe your style of work? What are some of your biggest influences?

Cinema is my world. For me everything is a story. Every person, every place has something to tell. We just need to listen.

-What is your usual technical setup on a shoot?

For me preparation is everything. I like to work hours on a shoot before it happens trying to explore all the facets of the shooting. Then when the time comes, life is easy and enjoyable. Your mind should be free of technical assets if you want to create.

-What is your creative process like?

There’s no particular process, things constantly change. When you live that life every day, every hour, your senses are open to creativity and making choices.

Today social media is crucial. You need to express yourself and communicate about your latest work. Beside all paying jobs, I’m always developing personal work. This is crucial to stay creative and open new boundaries.

-What is your post-production workflow like?

I know quiet well Photoshop and Lightroom and I always give my vision of the work to the post-production house.

-What is your dream project?

The next one…
