Photographer since 1992, I started shooting adverts in studios,"old school", which means no-digital!

Packshots for supermarkets, as an assistant, to start with, then training on 4x5'' chambers at Sinar in Zurich. Since light is the basis of the image, a stint at Kodak in Paris to work advertising lighting, supplemented these fundamentals.

In 1995, I started to work in the ski resorts for their communication in the french Pyrenees, meeting with professional sportsmen, I live in the mountains... From there, I had the opportunity and the chance to follow skiers or snowboarders and to produce features in several countries: Canada Baffin Island, to Wisthler, in northern Norway, Spitzbergen, some documentaries on the snowboard in altitude, on Mexican volcanoes higher than 5000m, on glaciers, trekking on Mount Kenya, climbing Oman, socio -cultural features in Uruguay, followed the air rally in the footsteps of Aeropostale, and discovered botany in the Pyrenees from east to west on the trail of a botanist, two centuries later.

This job allows me to address several areas, know many professionals, share some important times with them...

All aurora borealis views are taken over the Lyngen Alps area, part of Tromsø Finnmark County, Norway, approximately 400 km north of the Arctic Circle. The "season" starts around early September but there can be Northern Lights all year round. However, during the period of the midnight sun, in fact, you cannot really see them.
The return of these northern lights generally heralds the first cold spells, the first frosts, ice skating outings on the lakes, often also the first snowfalls.
Scientists explain this phenomenon much better than me. But before any rational explanation, the peoples of the north have always either revered these bewitching lights, or feared them, thinking they were seeing the dead return, or even the reflection of the armor of terrible warriors coming to invade them. The Sami, original people of the great European North, commonly called the Lapps, have several words to name them, including an expression: "the light that can be heard".
Personally, I never get tired of going out to admire this exceptional spectacle, often in very low temperatures, whether the phenomenon is of low intensity, or extremely powerful, we always feel its magnitude, the strength of the places, of these arctic lands. What we see can be a few hundred kilometers high, and is around a hundred kilometers above us. Something to realize how vulnerable and small we are, and how much our planet deserves to be protected!
