About Me

Photographe Bilingue/Bilingual Photographer

Hello everyone!

I’m a hobbyist photographer, working mainly in Ottawa and Gatineau but do travel from time to time.  I started photography several years ago with landscapes and wildlife, starting adding models to my portfolio back in 2009 when I bought my first DSLR and just love it!

I love many styles and concepts, from fashion to swimwear, lingerie, boudoir, pinup and artistic nudes.  The comfort level of the model is always the governing factor in the type of shoot since the only way of getting good images is for the model to be comfortable in what they are doing.  Nudity can be interesting for some concept but it is always 100% optional and the model's decision.  In the planning of every shoot, I like to exchange conceptual images with the models, usually through email, to see what attracts their eyes the most and work my way from there.  It is also a good way of finding out what the models is comfortable with.

Of course, the models are always welcome and encouraged to share their ideas and concepts they would like to work on!  I am always open to new ideas!

If you would be interested in working with me, please send me a message to discuss possible shoots. I am bilingual (French being my first language). I am open to any and all suggestions and I would love to help out with your ideas.

Looking forward to great collaborations!

Michel
