Since the age of 12 he's been attracted by photography but he knew it was a costy activity and as he was very young, he didn't want his parents to pay for the expensive gear and numerous films developments.
Plus, at that time, he doesn't know anyone sharing this same interest so he completely put this aside until he buys his first digital camera in 2002.
He instantly shows a big interest to high contrast photography.
Since then he has gotten more and more into photography and with the experience accumulated during all his trips and tours all over the world with his job, he decides in 2013, along with music, to do photography for living.

He is preparing several expositions, a book and works on other projects.
