Always try something new was the title of one of my articles a year ago. I’m true to my words, it’s time for me to reshuffle things a bit!
I’ve always been very passionate about motorsport. Since I was a kid I’ve always watched all the races I could that were on TV. Now with internet it’s racing fest almost every week-end! So why not merging my “old” motorsport passion with my “new” photography love into one?
That’s what I will be doing in 2019. Being in Romania for 10+ years didn’t help as motorsports are quite marginal there. But here in France, it’s already something much more reachable. I’ve just become the official photographer for a local karting track. The first step to something, hopefully, big!
It doesn’t mean I’ve stopped shooting the streets and the city, far from that. On the contrary, with a fresher perspective, it can only help with creativity. Heck, I’ve even started shooting the streets in colors during my last trip to Bucharest! Much more to come later on…
Meanwhile, if you’re like me a motorsport fan, you can find my photos on Instagram at @pierrepichotmotorsport. And don’t forget to subscribe 😉
A short article to brag about the fact that some of my photos are now available to be licensed on a “little website” known as Getty Images! It’s quite an achievement to get there, on the most reknown stock photography website in the world!
You’ll probably find some photos that have been published here. From Streets, or even the Ghost project… But there is also quite a lot of other stuff (in colors!!) that have never been featured on these pages.
The link to my photos is in the menu on the top… or just behind this link.
Good news! I’ll be part of the SPOT on STREET organized by the admins of the OnSPOT Facebook photography group in Bucharest, Romania. I will be featured with 35 others photographers from 10 countries (and the only on from France).
It is actually the 4th edition of the OnSPOT exhibitions. This year’s theme focusing on surprising, unintended moments that happen in the street. My photo? This one, of course, who was 2nd at the 2017 Sony Photography Awards 🙂
The opening is on September 5th. Find all the details about the SPOT on STREET exhibition on the F64.ro blog! If you’re in Bucharest at this time, go and give it a look 😉
