How joining the fun will make you a better photographer
Photographing landscapes and trees in a country where nature is as ubiquitous as in Finland is fantastic. But I prefer people, because people offer many more characters and rare moments that are different and unique.
Enjoy history, but look out for the new
Bath is a very old town dating back to Roman times. The buildings are beautiful and the baths are amazing. For all the right reasons, it is a popular tourist destination.
The secrets of better winter photography
As a tourism photographer, I try to convey the joy of visiting the beautiful Swiss countryside. Choosing a background typical of the region is a major part of composition.
How following a story makes you a better photographer
These two images were taken on my first trip to Albania. At that time, I knew little about the country but it soon grew on me on a very special, emotional way.
People make the place
I have always been fascinated by certain geographical names. Loaded with history or evocations of a legendary past, they have captivated me over the years: Samarkand, Lhasa, Timbuktu... As for others, as soon as I saw a picture, I knew that I had to go.
Understand the place you're photographing
I first visited Paris with my father when I was 12 years old. My second time, I was 15 and went with two friends, spending many hours on the steps of Sacré-Coeur.
Contrast old and new in your photos
The original Potato Eaters was painted in Nuenen. What I really like about the painting is that, while it is quite naive in a way, it is painted with so much passion and power.
Photography is all about anticipation
San Sebastián, like all cities, offers up surprises at every turn. When you hit the streets of a city in search of its essence, you’ve got to be prepared. That is, the communication between camera and photographer is continuous.
Real life happens not far from the crowd
When I am in Florence, I always try to imagine what amazing energy there must have been in its glorious past when all those great artists were creating their masterpieces.
Show more by showing less
I simply love silhouettes. I think they are one of the greatest inventions of the visual world. Things are brought back to their forms and often forms are associated with ideas.
