About me

I am a lifestyle and documentary photographer and graphic designer.

As the head graphic designer of Contagious Magazine between 2005 and 2013 I won the best designed front cover and best designed magazine award, and also won Bronze Andy Award for graphic design.

I have shot photography series for the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity and shot their official 2-year 2 ad campaign 'Great Stories Start in Cannes'.

Born in France, I studied photography at L'Ecole des Gobelins and have been working in London for the past 15 years.
