About myself... Well, I am a old style of French female pro.photographer, I have been trained at the famous studio Harcourt in Paris and it's famous Art Director, Pierre Antony Allard (hello Pierre , if you read it...)
I am working now in Lake Bluff and Chicago area
I did exhibit my work extensively in Europe. Usa is still very new for me. I have a current and permanent exhibition of the portraits of the Joffrey Ballet dancers , exhibition located in their new building, at Randolf st, Chicago.
My next exhibition will be in lake Bluff in March 2009, a retrospective of my work, from 2005 to today.
I like low profile life style and quiet peaceful working environnement.
I moved in Chicago, in August 2007. I was previously working in Paris, Strasbourg, in France, where I was also studio owner, specializing in beauty and fashion photos for editorial, but also portraits and creative pictures for album covers and performing art artists, celibrities, etc...

Always working and collaborating, experimenting new ideas, I am always in search of new faces, new models, artists, make up stylists, hair stylists, fashion designers, poeple with creative ideas background, well dynamic creative people like me.
Advice for everyone:
In life and at Work, we get only as much as we give. Generosity, reliability, curiosity, respect and a humble attitude pays off.
Who knows? the next person you will meet or work with on a TFP will be the next Tom Ford , Meisel, Kate Moss in ten years.... maybe the young fashion editor of the local magazine that you will work for, will be working at Vogue in few years.....
It is why..... always ALWAYS give your best to everyone....
Basically I am:
*Extremely dynamic and perfectionist, always outgoing.
*I love to work with a team and on long term projects.
*Not willing to travel worldwide anymore ( apart USA, Japan, and Old Europe),
*I am giving a lot of my time to support charities and organisations with my photography work (I am a Member of the NAOCP association) so you can contact me if you need help for your organisation and social projects communication, I might be able to help you.
And i am soooooorry for my bad written english.... I am working on improving it...
About my work.....I switched completly to digital recently. Using medium format digital backs and other kind of cameras.
