My summer experiment with stars and nocturnal skies awoke my desire to acquire an extra wide lens with large aperture. The now well known Samyang 14mm f 2.8 fits the criteria and despite not featuring an auto-focus, is praised for its sharpness and overall quality. One thing is to get the tool another is to […]
Most of my studio work is focused on students and for obvious legal reasons, I never display it on my blog nor any public medium. I sometime manage to get grown ups to step in and let them play with decor, clothes and postures. none of the following pictures were my ideas. It was a […]
One living in a big city is de facto excluded from the clubs of star gazers as the myriads of celestial objects to be elsewhere looked upon are hidden by the glowing ugly lights of our dwellings and luxurious retail units. One can still be very interested or even passionate about the big universe surrounding us […]
End of year holiday was once again an opportunity to spend time shooting different kind of pictures. Since I shoot kids in school most of the year, landscape would be a easy choice. I also wanted to try venturing in less known territories and decided to try unusual lighting conditions. First occasion was given by […]
London would not be London without a river flowing through. We, Londoners, go through life crossing this vital waterway without thinking too much of it (or do not even cross it at all!!!). And believe me when I say crossing, I mean it – living in south London and working in Kentish Town gives me two […]

A very short lay-over does not give many oportunities to discover a big city like New York. We got started in Brooklyn (High Street station) and made our way to Battery Park by foot, crossing the East River on Brooklyn Bridge. Roads, cables and glass panels were all like lines, stretching in all directions. I […]
During our layover in New York city, we jumped right into a wedding photo-shoot. I had chosen to spend the day with my faithful Nikkor 85mm f1.8 that I cherish for my portraits, The occasion could not be missed and i shot few pics along the official photographer in the middle of Time Square!
Too few hours of sunshine never allowed me to go to to Wetland nature reserve as planned but I managed to set something up on our flat roof to make up for it!!! Despite faulty remote trigger and cats roaming in the garden, here are the spring 2013 visitors caught on their lunch!
It has been quite a while since I played with water and light… New experiment with 2 strobes on both sides of the event.
