At 23 years old, I left France to travel for a year and I never went back. I learned about light and photography while living on the road, in a van, traveling across Australia. Being on my own for long periods of time and surrounded by nature made me see things differently. It taught me how to live in the moment and appreciate the magic of light. Most of all, it made me realize how precious relationships are. I'm inspired by natural light, emotions, nature, people, beauty and music and all of

IF I HAVE A FREE SUNDAY I WOULD SPEND IT… reading or going on a mini road trip adventure :)

MY MOST MEMORABLE TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WAS… on the positive side: last year I found paradise on an island in Thailand where I scuba dived. I was so happy I considered moving there forever! On the less positive side: four years ago I went to south America and rented a car to do a road trip in Northern Argentina. I didn't check the weather and got stuck in the mountains because of the rain and the rivers that formed across the roads... I didn't have a 4x4 and it was really stressful and scary. I nicknamed it the road trip of hell! :) 

THE COUNTRY I MOST WANT TO VISIT IS… Iceland. New Guinea. New Zealand. Kenya. And I always want to go back anywhere in Asia.

WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY JOB IS… the freedom (even though I'm a workaholic!) and the creativity.

 IF I DIDN’T DO THIS FOR A JOB I WOULD BE/DO… taking photos as a passion and working whatever job allow me the most freedom to travel.

IF I COULD GIVE NEWLY ENGAGED COUPLES ONE PIECE OF ADVICE IT WOULD BE… before you get mad and say things you regret, take a deep breath and count until 10. Planning a wedding (and life in general!) can be so stressful... Sometimes for nothing, too!

I LOVE WHERE I LIVE BECAUSE… it's sunny, close to the ocean, near the road to take road trip and halfway between lake Tahoe, Yosemite and Big Sur ;)

IF I COULD LIVE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD IT WOULD BE… where I am in Northern California. Or in Thailand ;)

MY FAVOURITE MOVIE IS? "Pride and Prejudice" in general. Right now it's "In Your Eyes" and "M. Nobody" 

MOST MEMORABLE MEAL I’VE EVER EATEN WAS… french fries I ate in Siem Reap in Cambodia. They tasted like my grand mother's! A red sniper in Mexico. And a banana milkshake in sihanoukville, Cambodia. (That's a meal combined, right? :D)

THE PETS I OWN ARE… Brooklyn, my Yorkie poo :)
