As i did not study photography then i needed to work and learn this way. So by assisting and starting to work with my own clients then i was able to learn and build my knowledge of photography bit by bit.
Pourquoi la nature morte / le culinaire /… que recherches-tu dans ces sujets ?
As i was previously a chef de cuisine then i still enjoy to be around food, chefs busy kitchens… and catch the moments that i was previously working in. When shooting nature mort then for me it is to show a dish or even just a vegetable and to enhance this.

C’est quoi une bonne photo ?
A good photo is one that you can look at more then 20 seconds. This is of course very personal from person to person. Also something that will help to make a good photo is one where you do not see anything fake such as bad shadows, bad retouch, bad lights and such.
La complexité de ce métier ?
I like the detail and the challenges of high end stillife. This is the same as working in a kitchen and creating a high detailed end dish.
