I lived the major part of my life in the beautiful area of Quebec City, in Canada. Quebec City is a heaven for any one passionate about photography as it is a city of contrasts and beauties. Even after over 25 years in this city, I am still discovering its wonders and finding new inspiration for photography.
But strangely enough, this city is not what triggered my passion for photography. Traveling had a much more important influence on me as photography always was at the heart of any journey I made, even very young. At the age of 5, I started using single lens reflex (SLR) cameras with the coaching of my father. Traveling all around the world gave me good occasions to explore the world with a different eye.
Quickly I understood that the world really is different when seen from the eyes of a photographer than from the eyes of anyone else. This difference cannot be described other than by the photographs themselves. They alone can open a brand new perspective on the world.
More recently, I converted to digital photography. This medium, I learned to love it at first and, once I understood it, to hate it deeply. Digital photography is a very powerful tool that can quickly lead to too much ease. With ease comes loss of technique and, to some extent, creativity. Slowly I am beginning to tame digital photography, understand and exploit its full potential. But it is still a very long way.
Here you will find a few landmarks seen along this long road. Hopefully they will be able to translate for you the beauty of the world as I see it.
