Spotlight: The city of Bordeaux

This will be the first article of many to come about the cities I’ve visited and loved the past 8 years. I will also go back and talk about some of my favorite places I worked in so far. I usually do not use the same locations twice so I will mostly write about the ones where I had (or was able) to go back, and the ones I would love to have a 2nd chance to make new images with the experience I now have.

I couldn’t pick a particular place for this first one, but you already know where we are heading here if you have read the title. I love this city, the streets, the monuments and landmarks, the food, and of course the wine… My partner and I almost moved there in 2017 but we ultimately decided to go further south. I have worked there a couple of times now with various artists and performers and I still feel that I have so much to discover!

The opportunities to create there are endless, some places are easy to access and others need a little work. I just wish I had bigger projects in the works there, because I know that a few places would be great for large scale projects. Looking back on these images was also an opportunity for me to see how my style has evolved. It wasn’t easy for me to choose 15 images from the many I made there, but here is my selection of pictures created with amazing talented dancers in the streets of Bordeaux.

There were some areas inside Darwin that were abandoned… Back in the days, I thought it would be interesting to use that kind of contrast for a ballet photoshoot.

(update) And it was inevitable, I had to do a part II because I couldn’t fit all the indoor photoshoots I’ve done there here. It was again, hard to choose, but here are some of my favorite images made indoors in this beautiful city: Spotlight: The city of Bordeaux part II !
