How to turn any commission for a paper or a corporate client into a final choice of pictures that will fulfill the commissioner, the person I photograph and myself ?
That is the question I always have in mind.
Having a good time comes first:
I enjoy finding the great available light or playing around with artificial one.
I never get bored with meeting some people whose universe is so different than mine.
I always enjoy the challenge of photographing a person whose having a hard time with his own image or one who controls it too much. In both cases, it requiers a good deal of skill.
I started my career in 1999 at the Independent newspaper in London and after a short while became a regular freelancer for the Times on the feature sections.
My home town is Paris these days, I have two young children and I am glad to say that I enjoy my job just as much as when I started.
This is because every commission is an opportunity to step out of my own life, to face a challenge and to do a new photo without repeating myself.
I am a regular freelancer in Paris and around for French and British magazines and newspapers.
Since 2018, I am a Fujifilm X Ambassador in France
In 2019, I joined the agency Signatures.
My first body of work UNSEEN won the Canon woman photojournalist award in 2001, and was largly exhibited.
