      Wedding photographer, in south France.

      After several years of exile under the tormented skies of Paris as a photojournalist, I chose to drop my suitcases on the purple shores of the Mediterranean sea where I spent my childhood.

Make happiness a living could be considered a fanciful or unrealistic project but I believed it is possible and I have made it a reality.

      Bridal days often lead me to work in Cannes or Nice, two coastal cities that I like. Being a wedding photographer in Cannes is a gift in itself because the decor lends itself naturally to the most perfect scenario, with the background a framework of luxury so bright you'd think it is imagined by a prestigious film set designer.

      Whenever possible I like to wander in Nice searching for an interesting view for my next shots or marvelling at the blazing sunsets that fire the horizon over the sea.
