Tell us about yourself

I was born and raised in France. I’m currently based in Amsterdam, Netherlands. I love to travel and explore other countries. I also enjoy hiking a lot.

Why do you travel and photograph your journeys?

I travel to discover new countries and cultures, meet people, and also to hike in the mountains. Photography is a way to travel several times, each time I look at my pictures I travel again. I also love to share this passion with friends or through Instagram. Photography is also my job, I try to do my best so that I can sell my pictures.

What is your favourite thing or item to photograph?

People and also landscapes, architecture, cities, mountains, and nature.

What’s your go-to travel hack?

Every time I travel I take my time, I don’t want to visit absolutely everything in a city or region.

Got any gear you can’t travel without?

My photography equipment (camera, lenses, filters, tripod and laptop)

What destination are you eager to go back to?

India. I’ve been there several times, it’s a festival of colours and the people are very nice, always smiling. Also Jordan.

How do you stay safe when you’re travelling?

I avoid crowded places.

What’s the best way to experience a destination like a local one?

Having a good guidebook and preparing in advance. Getting tips from friends. I also contact photographers on Instagram to ask for tips.

What’s your favourite word in another language?


When and where are you next travelling?

The French Alps in May.
