Thierry Bornier has roamed the most incredible locations , he climbs up to the highest point in order to dominate the view and waits for long hours to obtain ideal lighting conditions . we could misjudge and confuse his images with paintings given the brightness of the colors and the structured character of the forms and lines
Thierry did study by himself his own technics of lighting using Internet to understand the concept and never stop to trying to improve. For him Photography lighting is like cooking after learning the based you can try everything to create new taste, new mood and that is unlimited. Thierry also find inspiration from some amazing painters, as Leonardo De Vinci and Rembrandt for their portraitures and lighting or from nature painters as Claude Monet or Vincent Van Gogh.
