I am 36 years old. I work both on photo and video, mainly at Bangkok, Thailand. I come from Paris, France. I am thai student, I speak and understand a bit the thai language. Actually I work on several projects, some short movies, and some comic strip (type cartoon but photography based). I do photo retouche for many years, it was my first job when I was 20 years old.

Full bio :
I started the photography at 12 years old in France, when my parents (both photographers) gave me a Minolta x-300 with a prime lens 28mm f/2.8, my first "real" camera. One month after I was shoting some of my friends, using sometimes some makeup (type carnival). In the same time I was reading some of the magazines of my parents talking about photography and tried a lot of differents way to do photography. In 1990, I've discovered that pictures can be edited with a computer, I spent many hours having fun with that new tool. In 1996 I had my first experience working in a shop in Paris (France), we were working with some important customers of the fashion industry, delivering sometimes up to 20000 photos a month for only one customer. In that shop I've worked also on video montage for wedding films in digital, I've shown how to do it with a computer to the owners and we have released 20 movies of 2 hours the first year. After I've worked at a major Internet agency in Paris, we had some customers like l'Oreal, the agency was specialised in fashion and financial websites. While this time I've never stopped photography, but my job was more focused arround Internet. I've worked for the first time with a pro model in Paris. Many years after, I have moved to Bangkok in Thailand, and I've bought a Carl Zeiss lens to get a very good quality of photography. My name is ooka "medias", because I cannot choose ooka "photography" since I work a lot on videos also.
