Back on karting for the second round of the Ligue du Centre Val de Loire championship at Cap Karting on March 31st, 2019. Unlike the first round, it was sunny all day… and I even got a beautiful sunrise during the very laps of the day!

I’ve had the privilege to be on the track to photograph the first round of the Ligue du Centre Val de Loire karting championship sur le circuit de Sologne Karting on March 10th, 2019. The morning was quite wet, with a few mansoon style showers during the first 3 hours ! Hopefully the afternoon was much sunnier…

Blur. Orléans, France, 2019. Get a print!

Another photo from my hometown, Orléans, France. This time I played with longer exposures in order to get this weird, blurred mood. Being a coffee addict really helps creating blur for this kind of photo! I wonder if I could start a project and make it a follow-up to Strangers in the Dark?

P&B. Bucharest, Romania, 2018.
A rainy night in Bucharest – Bucharest, Romania, 2018. Get a print!

I love shooting the streets of Bucharest. I don’t know why, there is something that always inspires me. Some vide, I don’t know. But every single time I go there, I come back with at least one great photo.

This particular photo as been taken during a rainy night at my favourite spot in the Romanian capital, the Union Square (or Piata Unirii for the locals). It’s always full of lights, with an interesting design, and a good looking metro station entrance. A few shots from my portfolio have been done there… This shop’s showcase is a great example of what can be found there. With this yellow/orange lighting, the rain allowing a great reflection on the ground, it was just about waiting for the perfect subject to pass 🙂

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…
