I am a portrait and lifestyle photographer, wedding photographer and surprise proposal specialist, based in Paris, France.
 
I have had a camera in my hand since my photographer Granddad placed a Polaroid in it when I was about 8 years old.
Since then I have documented life as I see it, travelling the world and meeting and photographing people and places on the way. 
I originally trained as a Chef, rightly figuring that I could pay my way around the world whilst learning my craft and honing my photography skills from the heart - working with masters rather than attend an institution. 
Nowadays, this knowledge and wealth of experience gained has enabled me to devote my whole life to my passion. 
I currently split my time between the beautiful city of Paris, where I now call home, the picturesque villages of the French Alps and the long hot summers of Bourgogne, often travelling in style onboard the luxurious 'Péniche Hôtels' of the French Waterways.
 I shoot portrait and lifestyle, using light and shadow with an artistic, natural and unique photo journalistic flair.
 Shooting people in a natural way; I have a rustic candid style that is inspired by the beauty of imperfection and the search for elegance amongst all the chaos.
