About Me

I've been photographing since I was 6 years old, when I received my first camera (an Agfa box with only one single opening slot and one focus!) from my grandfather who was an amateur photographer. I took pictures of just about everything I saw, the same way I drew everything I saw (I'm an artist painter as well : see my album "My artwork"). A few years later, I started to develop my own pictures and realized that one can be as creative in the dark room as on the field! Little by little people started to like my pictures and I began to receive offers. I insist to remain an amateur photographer, however, because in real life, I'm an artist painter, a musician, a jazz journalist and radio maker.
I never really went to school for all I'm doing, because I was afraid to loose my own, recognizable style. I've always avoided to copy anyone.
The thing is : as long as we all accept that evolving and learning is a life time process, all is fine. My age doesn't matter : I'm still in the learning process and I know : we will never arrive anywhere, we will always be in motion! Those who think they arrived somewhere, are in fact going backwards!
Being on MM is for me also part of that same learning process, because I'm convinced we can all learn something from each other! I'm learning so much from y'all! And I hope y'all can learn at least a little bit from me! And please : don't let all these different styles stop co-existing! There is no such thing as "the only real style". Diversity rules!!
Peace!
For your info : I do my own retouching, although I try to reduce retouching to a minimum! I adore the different skin textures, so I always try to keep this as visible as possible! Airbrush...?? NO, THANKS!!
