From 2017 to 2018 – The transition

12 month is not enough, I needed one more to finally complete, retouch, all the work done in 2017. This weekend I will officially be able to say that I am stepping into 2018. One of my main goal this year is to work on projects that matter to me. Emphasizing quality over quantity, and favoring teamwork for bigger projects. This will take some time to setup so basically, 2018 will be a year of transition. 

My Wife and I left Antibes (French Riviera – France) this week we were spent the past 9 months and a half, and we are looking for a place, a city to settle down. I need to work on long-term projects because I got tired of being constantly in a hurry these past years. 

Last December I shared my 2017 top 9 on Instagram and like every year I am surprised by the ones you seem to prefer.

So I decided to share in this short post my top 10 based (in no particular order) on my personal preferences and their place in my body of work. The overall selection is also a little taste of what to expect this year and in 2019.

1. Karita Tikka – Halles de la Cartoucherie (Toulouse – France)

The bigger the better? Not really, but I love epic pictures… > Check out the Behind the scenes <

2. Gillian Leopold – Villa Eilenroc (Antibes – France)

What are your favorite pictures of the past year? Please tell me, I am curious to know… The result might be different from Instagram.
A lot of these pictures would not exist without the help of a group of amazing people! I want to thank all the volunteers that helped me out on some of these complex shots.

If you wish to be part of this adventure, make sure to follow me on IG where I often announce my upcoming projects in my stories, who knows we might be in the same city!

You can also join my newsletter to be sure not to miss any of my upcoming events.

2018 can finally start for me… I really can say much on what I have in store, but trust me it is worth the wait!

See you all very soon.

  1. Your work is really outstanding. I am a long time sports photographer and have a keen interest in this type of photography. Your blogs and the accompanying videos are both instructive and inspirational. If you ever come to the USA to do a shoot it would be my pleasure to buy you a beer.

I haven’t been in the US for a while but hope to plan a trip there this year… Nothing certain so wait and see! Stay around, who knows we might meet sooner than expected.

  2. Great photos. I have really enjoyed exploring your work in 2017 and getting inspired to work with lights. My daughter’s are a dancer and a gymnast. I look forward to creating some dramatic shots as well. Thank you for sharing and the inspiration.
