'Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it' (Confucius)
Originally from Lorient, in beautiful Brittany (Celtic part of France), Photography and Travels have been an integral part of my life for as long as I can remember.
After graduating from an International School of Management specialized in Europe - Asia international business, I have been working as a consultant for European companies willing to expand their activities into Asian markets for over 10 years.
As part of my job, my travels have taken me to many parts of Europe and Asia as well as other locations around the globe, allowing me to photography the beauty of our world, its natural scenery, its people and its cities. My portfolio is thus mostly a spontaneous exploration of the world with my camera in hand.
Most of the time I use a Nikon D700 with a NIKKOR AF-S 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens. It's reliable, has a fast shutter speed, covers a wide range of shooting situations and you don't see noise even at 6400iso. I also sometimes use a Panasonic DMC-TZ7 if the situation does not me allow to use my D700.
I enjoy many types of photographic subjects and styles, but it is my love for artistic digital enhancement that really gets my heart pumping and creative juices flowing. While I have a few shots that are heavily manipulated, I prefer to apply subtle adjustments and changes. I touch up my 'digital negatives' in Adobe Lightroom & Photoshop to recreate and enhance what I felt and saw when the capture was made.
I particularly enjoy using texture layers, selective color or monochrome / duotone post-processing to create a very specific and unique atmosphere and mood in my images. This is certainly the reason why my photographic style has often been described as 'highly atmospheric'.

Seit einiger Zeit beschäftige ich mich mit digitaler Bildbearbeitung. Und ich freue mich sehr über Beifall. Aber ich setze mich natürlich auch mit konstruktiver Kritik auseinander.
Aus Fotos schneide ich die Ecken aus, über die man sonst eher hinwegsieht und die eigentlich nur zufällig mit drauf sind. Und dann versuche ich was anderes draus zu machen.
Hintergründiges in den Vordergrund rücken,
Unscheinbarem Ansehen verschaffen,
Wirkung entfalten lassen, staunen.
Mittlerweile hat sich mein digitaler Bildermacher-Horizont etwas erweitert. Das ist bei einigen abstrakten Arbeiten zu erkennen.
Vielen Dank für Ihren Besuch in meiner Galerie.
Everything started since I fell in love with visual arts some twelve years ago and despite the fact that I have a bachelor degree in finance, I decided to take a step into photography as my primary activity.
Sometimes I have some good ideas and I have to use something more than just photography to tell the story that I had in mind. Ususally I love coontrast and darker colors using them in such a way thus to receive the sense of mistery and drama.
