I like people. And even more to take pictures of them.
Originally from the South-West of France and after stays in Saint-Étienne, Berlin, and Malacky, I have been living in Langres, Haute-Marne since 2015. I love the peace, the hospitality, and the comfort of this small country town.
An adventurer at heart, I know Berlin like the back of my hand, I have a Brazilian passport and I negotiate in Khmer with Phnom Pehn's tuk-tuk. And if I love traveling passionately, my carbon footprint makes me feel guilty. I partly compensate by being a vegetarian and doing my laundry with the ashes from my fireplace.
I play tennis (I am 30), cycle (much less than I would like), I am a fan of the Sixers and the French biathlon team, I love to cook (especially for my girlfriend), read fantasy (Tolkien, Katz, Jaworski), play board games (4 Gods, RFTG), add parentheses in my sentences, read photo books, look at photos. And above all to take pictures.
I shoot around 18 weddings a year, as this is my main activity. The rest of year, I work on my skills on my own or through workshops. I also attend to a lot of wedding photography conferences as I do consider this job a vocation.
