"Ever since the day Olivier contacted me for a photoshoot on 01/13/2014, he has always been my inspiration, my mentor, my rock! Very few people can have both ends of the spectrum like he does. Olivier is hard-working, dedicated, (super super) smart, very attentive to details and result-oriented; but at the same time he also knows how to have fun and has a great sense of humor. He takes his job seriously but doesn’t take himself too serious. If you have seen his works, I bet you’d agree with me they’re the most unique and creative things you’ve ever seen. Olivier loves what he does, enough to always trust them, study them and perfect them. I’ll be forever grateful to know him and I think it’s another blessing that he’s become one of my very best friends." Read less
