When I was offered, as summer approached, to do a solitary roaming on 4 stages of the Chemin des Bonshommes (GR107) in Ariège, it was without thinking that I packed my backpack and my equipment to explore these landscapes that were still unknown to me. So it's all excited and eager to start […]

I regularly travel the globe in search of unknown places. To take spectacular photos, I don't hesitate to walk for long hours. My way of traveling: a car, a tent and good walking shoes. You have understood that there are very few lazy holidays for me!

A great lover of adventure and the mountains, I am constantly looking for new discoveries and new challenges! With a special attachment to the Pyrenees, I regularly head for its many trails. Never separated from my camera, I like to immortalize these moments in image. I am looking for stories to tell, always with the desire to express it through original, strong and at the same time simple images. What I try to freeze with my material are moments of life, landscapes, sensations, emotions and encounters.

I embark with me my companion, my son and my dog ​​Snow in (almost) all my adventures! What do I prefer in Ariège? The great outdoors and the spirit of freedom that reigns there.

Stroll, contemplate, take full eyes, that's what I like the most! Always in search of visual nuggets, I like to be surprised by a medieval city, a castle, a country house, or even the great outdoors! My favorite in Ariège? The Plateau de Beille. The ideal spot to disconnect from everyday life and enjoy life!
