Introduced to photography by my grand-father at 6 years old… from my first Kodak view camera to the Leica, from the photographic film to the digital sensor… at about 5 decades and my passion for analog photography has never stop growing... I’m not 56, I’m 6 with 50 years experience.

 

Year after year, I just look at the world.

I seize what I see and I release the shutter at the moment that makes an expression, a movement or a story... I’m feeling it and I take it as it comes, I just want to capture the moment.

 

Most of the time I see the world in black & white and contrasts through my viewfinder. I believe black and white can reveal truths that cannot always be described but are often impactful, can suggest that we can’t see.

 

I don’t want a camera-computer autocorrecting everything: speed, aperture, distance and nothing else to think about.

 

Most of the time it’s an exercice of patience and I wasn’t very good at it... I’m getting better day after day and I mean sometimes I kept a little piece of it. It feels good because I’m capturing something where everything is great and even if there’s an imperfection, that’s ok, that’s not bad for me.

 

I love loading a film into my 6x6 camera and enjoy releasing the shutter, doing my chemistry, developing… and the moment when I look through the negatives... it’s so satisfying !

 

Live jazz performance addict, I'm still experimenting... Jazz means meeting others and sharing with them. Jazz embodies universal values such as freedom, tolerance, joy, tradition and innovation.

Special thanks to Jazz à Vienne Festival and Festi Jazz Rimouski.

 

I am experiencing the photography, the music and I take it as it comes...

Let's take photos... life goes on...

 

Take care of yourself and stay all safe and healthy.
