"The way he photographs the very mysterious nature of iconic buildings, makes us see them in a new light. There is the feeling of the Pictorialists in his photos, a painterly quality. Going forward, the aspect I like the most about his work is its poetic nature. These photographs are memorable and their emotions tangible."

Born and raised in France, I am a multimedia designer and multi-award winning and published photographer.
I started my artistic career at a very early age as a Circus child artist.
The image, still or moving, is the centre of gravity of my work. While I am developing an artistic director career in live performing arts, photography occupies a major place in my life.
When asked, I like to define myself as a multi-media artist, in the largest definition of the word.
I feed my inspiration with almost everything that surrounds me. Fascinated by space and cosmos, an entire project can sometimes be inspired by only one music, an art piece, a book...
Recognized for my unique skills, expertise, proaction, creative direction and limitless imagination, I work on a very large range of projects, from museum and public installations to live shows and music videos and advertising film direction but also for advertising campaigns and fine art photography. Many times awarded for my photographs, I've also been published in magazines and art books and exposed in Toronto, Montreal, Los Angeles, New-York, Philadelphia, Paris, Berlin and London.
My mission is to make people dream. It all starts with a vision. My work then is to translate this vision into reality, using arts and technology with a master central word: EMOTION.
Graduated in audiovisual and theatrical production from CineCreatis school in France, and professionnaly trained in video editing and motion design, I quickly brought the virtual world into the live performing arts to bring the people’s dream to the next level.
I live and work between three incredible countries, France, Canada and USA, where I founded a creative studio in collaboration with my artistic partner, abstract painter Chantal Wesbty, Westby & Mercier in 2019.
