I have been a photographer for 5 years now. Before that, I was in charge of HR in a big corporate business; photography at first was a way to let out some steam, it was a very demanding job requiring a lot of letting go.
At first, I was shooting exclusively empty landscapes, with no one, no human activity, maybe because I had to be overly social in my daily job.
One day I got fed up of my job, decided to devote my time to my passion and started a retraining. In the beginning, I was not attracted by social photography (wedding, portraits). But today, I can reconnect with what I liked in my HR job, help people write their own story and memories. I need it, it’s my fuel.
Shooting weddings is my media to tell a story and render what I learned about people. It helps me keep faith in humanity and in feelings we too often try to hide.
I also do a lot of corporate photography along with personal projects.
