I gained interest in photography at university, while studying international relations and japanese. Being passionate about the aesthetic of cinema, I first approach photography as a way to experiment with light and composition .
My first camera was an old analog Pentax K1000, which remained one of my weapon of choice for many years. With it I practiced street photography and portrait from Paris to Tokyo, learning development and polishing my skills on black and white photography, before expending to color, analogical medium format and digital photography.
This was on film that I shot my first concerts, photographing japanese rock bands in Europe for french websites and magazines, also writing concert chronicles and film critics.
Established full time in Tokyo from 2011 to 2014, I am now in France, shooting portraits, concerts and events as a freelance photographer.
If you are looking for a photographer to cover an event or a concert, to take portrait or to create a portfolio, for publication or for private use, do not hesitate to contact me !
