Photography

Photography is an activity which combines a set of technical skills with a variety of situations in which a picture can be made of as the result of a sensibility. In the huge field of applications which are made possible through the word photography and its technical developments, the practice for which I accumulated the richest experience is “event photography” : photography of public events, in general, like concerts, cultural events, sports, politics.

To forget the camera once all the needed settings have been made for good, is the moment where the photographer comes into the event. Capturing the priceless second, the long-awaited handshake, the improbable smile, this instant which gives its value to the whole event is a true motivation while shooting during hours in a public event with an heavy equipment.

Equipment

As a youngster, I have been awarded prizes in contests during the 1980’s. But, that was only a beginning. As a ghost writer and a literary translator, I met with and sometimes worked for renowned photographers : Jean-Luc Moulène, Nathalie van Doxell, Sabine Hartl.

Lately, I became interested and then involved in photography until to reach the point of being a published photographer during political events (see the page “Publications”), first as an activist in associations, then as a blogger trying to feed this blog with my own material, then as a pure photographer searching for the “shot” to be published anywhere possible. In few years, I came through an ongoing process of training and learning and refining what is progressively growing as a style.

This is why a series of institutions, like the Hungarian Institute in Paris, started to praise my portraits or my scenes and use them with my consent in their public communication on the social networks.

Equipment
To go alongside a Nikon reflex FX D810 (full frame) photo camera (shooting in RAW), I use a range of lenses from a 14 mm to 500 mm in to achieve photo reportages in various environments outdoor, indoor, politics, science, religion, culture) and kinds of situation (static, people on stage, people in motion, fauna).
For each photo reportage on an event, I realise shots in three scopes :

1/ general view of the event                2/ scene             3/ individual portrait.

I publish albums in low definition on the internet and deliver the required files in LD or HD by e-mail via Google Drive.
They use my pictures :
Forum des Instituts Culturels Étrangers de Paris (FICEP), 2017-
Chambre de Commerce Franco-Finlandaise (CCFF), 2016-
No studio shooting.
