About MeHi and welcome to this profile page! Among a few other things, I’m kinda combination of a digital artist and a photographer - I can’t really dissociate one from the other. Though I live and work near Montpellier, France, most of my contacts live abroad - in particular, I’ve been working for quite some time now in the music industry (indie CD covers, etc), or for independent projects with friends in the US. I’d like to move on and focus more on people shots, in line with the kind of work you can see in my portfolio - yet again, with a definitively more prevalent “human presence”. Hence my subscription here, as I look for models not too far away to achieve that. People who inspire me, and hopefully anyone looking at the final results… :)
What I won't change is my two cents about what a picture is, or should be: not just "something that tells a story"; more like a gentle device that lets people imagine one (or more), on their own - a thought-provoking outlet. If and when I can achieve that, fine by me. I have no artistic pretension beyond that point...
I use Photoshop a lot, but that's just a tool. In the end, it doesn't matter; the camera, equipment, bits and pieces of the trade, don't matter either... It's been put much better already:
"The heart and the mind are the true lenses of the camera" (Yousuf Karsh, 1908-2002)
I’d also be very glad to enter various kind of cooperation with other photographers/digital artists, provided we share common views on styles and goals.
Well… What else for now? Oh yes, I speak French (native). Feel free to contact me through site-mail, either in English or French. Btw, I’ll translate all this into French later…
