Director of photography

Fiction is the reality of the mind



Determined director or introverted filmmaker , as a director of photography, i adapt my eyes and the expression of the image that everyone is looking for. Drama and passion, humor and derision, diversity of ideas there is a multitude of possibilities for lighting. My multiple influences promote a coherent and authentic work depending on the artists and their imagination


I started with documentary 10 years ago, the encounters across the regions and on various continents have given me a lot of know-how and contacts. The proximity has inspired me to convey the aspects of investigation and society in a documentary series on the beautiful province and several other international reportages. Mystical or educational, I’m particularly interested in this audiovisual category.

Find the picture where it is

As a DOP, I always try to create the best image possible, the most suitable and one that is about the subject. This is also why I like to mix the purely technical film when I’m working on a documentary, this method optimizes stronger images, without forgetting the subtlety and spontaneity of documentaries, often more revealing of the moment.



My passion allows me to participate in business plans. Stimulate employees and customers for various brands, both internally and as advertisement. Always innovating, I propose frameworks and colors designed to perfectly suit a brand, thereby creating an enthusiastic  approach and visibility of a company
