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.

After 78 days, 2 hours, 16 minutes and 40 seconds of loneliness, the winner of the 2012 Vendée Globe, François Gabart, shares his victory with tens of thousands of spectators massed on either side of the channel of Les Sables d'Olonne. This very special moment is especially appreciated and expected by the sailors who have completed the circumnavigation. This rise follows, for media reasons, an extreme protocol. Embedded in the production helicopter,  we live the event at 1500 feet high. I then proposed to the pilot Thierry Leygnac to isolate the rising star Gabart whose slow progression takes place under the protection of multiple rib satellites. The unit then begins a tight rotation causing the inclination of the over 45 degrees cabin. Tilt allows us to frame vertically one who then enters sail racing's history.
