Associated photographer, teacher and manager of ETAP Sàrl (Ecole Technique et Agence Photographique), mainly in charge of the fashion and studio photography part of the school activities.
My inspiration is coming from people, I feel that my artistic soul reveals itself in fashion, portrait, boudoir and nude art photography. My influences come from great photographers as Lucien Clergue, Jean-Loup Sieff, Helmut Newton and Steve McCurry…
The main asset of a people photographer is its models. I respect all of them and I like letting them vent without dictating the position of each of their fingers. Too much direction breaks the natural. I prefer a rough picture that expresses a feeling, an atmosphere communicated to the reader of the image, than a perfect photograph meaningless and without emotion.
