Olivier Blanchet

After starting his career in the control of motorway infrastructure works, Olivier leaves major projects to link his two passions as photography and the sea, on which he regularly goes sailing and windsurfing.

Over the experiments, he obtained his first releases and widens its scope to other sports, and other areas closest to events organisation and news.

Olivier comes to partners wishing to highlight their brand, magazine or event.

He is also part of the official photographer's team for major competitions such as the Vendée Globe and the Transat Jacques Vabre for DPPI picture agency, with which he has worked for over 10 years.

Four years ago, we were carrying out a similar image in the same context above the navigator François Gabart victorious of the Vendée Globe 2012-2013. On January 19, 2017, it was the turn of Armel Le Cléac'h to know the honors of victory.

While the monohull embeds the famous channel of Les Sables d'Olonne, the pilot of the helicopter offers me a vertical shot of the boat under high protection of the semi-rigid of the organization, as it was 4 years ago. The low altitude allows me to keep a focal length of 45 mm with a diaphragm wide opened.

It is 18:23 and night has already fallen on the Vendée coast. The sensitivity of the camera approaches 12800 iso. No cropping of the photo has been made in post-production.
