I live in Paris and I work in the movie business as a producer, but I'm passionate crazy about photos. It all started 6 years ago when I was on holidays and a designer showed me what you could do with Photoshop to enhance photos, I immediately bought the Canon 350D and did a lot of training to learn photography and retouching.
Since then I bought the Canon 5d and 7D and I use Photoshop CS 6 and Lightroom 4. I also use Nik software plug in, Photomatix and autopanopro
I worked on a project for the last 7 years called "Paris Cinéma", the idea was to take beautiful moments of lights in Paris to give them a movie look. Some of the photos are heavily retouched, some are not at all. All that matters to me is the emotional impact.
Lately I started doing portraits compositing. Meaning taking a person on a neutral background and mix that up with a nice background.
