About me

Mon intérêt pour la photo date de mon adolescence lorsque j’ai photographié, avec ma nouvelle caméra Kodak Instamatic 104, la Place Ville-Marie en contre plongée. Depuis j’ai toujours aimé ¨prendre¨ des photos. Amant de la peinture, mon rêve était de peindre, …un jour. Mes talents s’étant avérés limités dans ce domaine, je découvris l’art de ¨peindre avec la lumière¨, par la photographie. J’ai donc décidé de ¨faire¨ de la photo. D’abord avec une Olympus OM1, puis le coup de foudre pour le fameux Nikon D70 en janvier 2005. Quelques cours de photo m’ont permis de toucher (d’effleurer) tous les domaines (studio, publicité, mode, paysage, macro, …). Actuellement j’ai une préférence pour la nature et la macrophotographie.

My interest for photography begun when I took a beautiful picture of the Place Ville-Marie with my new Kodak Instamatic 104 camera. Since that I always like to ¨take¨ pictures. Once I discover that painting could be done not only with brush and paint but also with ¨light¨, I began most seriously with an Olympus OM1, then I fall in love with the Nikon D70. After some photography courses I decide to ¨make¨ photographs. Today I prefer landscape and macro photography.
