Strangers in the Dark XXVII - Austerlitz train station. Paris, France, 2018.

Stangers in the Dark XVII – Austerlitz Train Station. Get a print!

The Austerlitz train station is Paris, France, is undergoing some very serious works in order to get modernized, and also extended with four new platforms that has been finished a few months ago. This newer section of the station features a much more modern design than the 1840 architecture of the main building. It really offers some great lines and lights for the photographer 🙂

Fine art print - The Kiss

The Kiss. Get a print.

I was lucky enough to have a few orders from new and returning customers for fine art prints. I’m a big advocate of prints as it is for me the ultimate way to enjoy a photo. Some even say that a photo doesn’t even exist before it is printed! In this digital age this are not so black or white, but I do agree that a digital representation of a photo doesn’t do it justice.

All those photos are available on my shop. They are available in 3 default sizes, 45×30 cm 60×45 cm and 90×60 cm, printed on high quality paper, but any size or support is possible! Contact me to get a quote for any special order, for any of my photos, be on this site or on Instagram.

Yoko. Chécy, France, 2018. Get a print!

I’ve just moved to my new house and, for the first time for a too long time, I just got an idea for what could be a great photo. I searched for my gear across multiple boxes, found pretty much everything but… no battery nor charger. I just had the one in the Canon 6D, that was blinking to its death. The challenge was then to make a strobe’d autoportrait in just a few shots, and without remote.

Yeah, fun.

The first shot was both a focus preparation with my empty desk chair to simulate my head and a rapid lighting test. Then I sat on a stool and took 3 shots, before the camera died. Loading the photos in the computer from last to first, big disappointment, the photos just suck… until I reach for my very first test photo, where I noticed something I haven’t even seen at first on the camera’s screen: my cat, Yoko, has invited herself in the shot, and seemed very interested by this bright thing.

It definitively saved my day.

A glimpse of light. Orléans, France, 2017.

A glimpse of light. Orléans, France, 2017. Get a print!

Having moved backed in France, it’s a new playground for me. I know Orléans, my home town, quite well, of course. But as my passion for photography has developed when I was abroad, it is the first time I roam in its street with the eye of a photographer. And trust me, it’s a beautiful city! It’s amazing to figure out how my perception of things has changed…

Orléans being a medieval city (you all know Joan of Arc, right ?), its historic center is a maze of narrow streets with old but tall houses close the ones to the others. And when the sun sets, it’s the occasion for its rays to light up those streets like they’re on fire, while others are in a deep shadow. A glimpse of light. This is the approach I’ve taken for my first photo in Orléans.

Ghost in the stairs. Cluj-Napoca, Romania, 2017.

Another night at my favourite train station. This time I let the station’s dock in peace for a dive in its underground passages. It’s a good spot to get some low angles shots, with people going down the stairs.

I really like this photo. The light from the dock creates a great backlighting effect, anonymising the subject, making her almost disappearing in the shadows if the stairs if it wasn’t for the glow of her hairs. She almost seems… unreal.
