Hi and thank YOU for your interest in my photostream !
My name is Julien, and I'm 32. I'm french, born and raised in Nice, in the South of France by the Mediterranean sea.
I love photography but I really started to shoot when I bought my first digital camera in 2003. I now shoot with a Canon DSLR since 2006 and I have to say I love photography in digital. As a beginner, I miss numerous shots and I learn from all the picture I take. This is something I could have never afford in Analog...
The more I travelled, the more photography appeared for me as a way to express myself and capture the beauty of the scenes I had the chance to discover.
Nature and wide open spaces lover, after having lived 10 years in the French Alps in Grenoble, discovering the local mountain trails, it’s now in the Mercantour or by the Mediterranean Sea that expresses most of the time my camera. My photographic point of view is also I believe shaped by my career as an architect. A geometric composition, a reflection, a special light, shape or volume are one of the common vocabulary to my two favorite disciplines.
As well as world-known landscape photographers such as Ansel Adams, Galen Rowell, Marc Adamus, or Adam Burton, I am also in admiration in front of the work of great french photographers, Vincent Munier, Vincent Favre, Xavier Jamonet or Samuel Bitton, for their artistic vision and local commitment. And last but not least, my inspiration comes from my mates Mathieu and Benoit, with who I share (not enough) photographic adventures.
The gear I currently use is almost exclusively digital. My mountain backpack usually contains a full frame DSLR, from wide-angle to telephoto lenses, various filters and a heavy and sturdy tripod. A pair of hiking shoes, a headlamp and a good fleece jacket a often part of the everyday kit.
In the end, all that matters to me is to render the emotions that reached me as I lived these precious moments. I hope I achieved this goal, thanks for your visit.
Enjoy your day !
