Freelance photographer, graphic designer, visual artist.
Graphic designer for over 20 years, I propose a global service offer, combining art and visual communication.
Fascinated by the image since childhood, first by its formal dimension, technical side, then and especially by its relation to the meaning, its semantic, symbolic aspects ; visual representation has become over time a way of life.
Based since 2011 in my Existences studio at the foothills of the Pyrenees mountains, I mostly lived and/or worked in Paris, Bordeaux, Manila as freelance or in-agency Art director. Global and local from my adoptive region, Aquitaine, in the south-west of France, I collaborated with Europe, USA, Canada, Asia, mainly the Philippines.
Since 2010, I'm developping the artistic side, especially with photography.
Photography is a natural extension of my background, finding in reality another incarnation, a complement to my pictorial work, mostly in art, architecture, travel, documentary photography, in France and abroad.
Between January 2009 and 2016, I've been going regularly across the Philippines country to draw the warm and friendly vibrations that my artistic work tries to share through image. I also travel Europe, Spain especially, North America, looking for inspiration in scenics and cities.
