Photography

Photography is my first hobby. Since I am 12 years old, I have had a camera. I always loved taking pictures (especially nature, when I was a kid living in the French countryside). The revolution for me was when digital camera became affordable. I totally enjoy the fact that the unit cost of each picture is pretty much near to zero. So I have been taking many pictures over the years and of course, while I am still an amateur, I have tried to improve my technique. Since I am in the Netherlands, I have got better cameras and I took some good advice from good people and from magazines. When I moved to Rotterdam, in 2006, I joined a great organisation called Rotterdam Urban Photo Collective (RUPC). RUPC is a simple association of amateur and professional photographers who specialize in photography in a urban environment. The association quickly extended to other Dutch cities, and there are even rumours of going international... The idea is to take thematic pictures together. There is a new theme (topic or technique) every month and the more advanced people help and give advice to the less skilled or experienced ones. The atmosphere is excellent and it is a great way to make friends too. Below are some of the results of my work. Feel free to contact me or comment...
