Epica

IN PHOTOGRAPHY, PASSION COMES FIRST

– My photos are not what I see but what I feel. If you can feel my emotions in them, then you will understand me and who I am

I took my first steps as a Photographer when I started taking pictures at live shows, seizing the great opportunity to photograph symphonic metal band EPICA in the Fall of 2010. This is how I came to enjoy what was nothing but a hobby at the time. I then got my first photo accreditations in 2011.

In the Fall of 2012, I went on tour with French modern metal band KELLS, both as Photographer and Merchandiser, allowing me to discover how wild, yet exciting a tour can be.
From May 2014 to May 2015, I also joined SOUNDS LIKE HELL PRODUCTIONS, a company booking metal concerts in Lyon and its surroundings, as their official Photographer and Press Agent. Then, in June 2015, I decided to start my own business.

During that time, I photographed over 300 shows and experienced many different live settings, among which several big French venues such as the Zénith and the Olympia or small clubs with a more challenging luminosity.

Shooting concerts – and, more generally, artists, has been a real passion. Music has always transcended me and has become a huge part of my life. More than just pictures, it is the emotions and the feelings I have towards concerts that I try to catch through image. In agreement with the values I have as far as music and stagecraft are concerned, I never use the flash during concerts out of respect for the artists, and I do everything I can to accommodate to the lights that reflect the music atmosphere and the band’s basic ambiance.

On top of that, I collaborated with a lot of artists and bands and produced promotional photo sessions for them (Ensiferum, Visions of Atlantis, Serenity, Therion, Franky Costanza…). I worked with private individuals too who wanted to immortalize important moments of their lives or simply pose for a studio session. I also do pregnancy and couple / wedding photoshoots to convey the most important moments of your life with high-quality photographs.

In every person, there is a unique beauty and sensitivity that I like to externalize and highlight in my photographs, whether the subject is on stage or in my studio. Although you might not be used to posing, you will quickly get comfortable in front of the camera as the photo sessions always take place in a relaxed and joyful atmosphere!
