ABOUT

I am currently the in house photographer of Rock Hard Magazine (France).
I'm working with Guitare Xtreme, Batterie, Bassiste and Guitare Sèche Magazines as well.

 

I'm also one of the Hellfest official photographers, covering the festival since 2011.
 

Latest works :

 

Early 2020 I travelled across Europe with Dream Theater as a touring photo and video content creator. I made all the still photos of the upcoming DVD, as well as some of the videos.

I have already toured with DT in 2012 in Japan, in 2014 ("Along for The Ride" tour), and 2016 ("The Astonishing" tour) and 2017 ("Images, Words and Beyond" tour) in Europe. My photos were used every tour since then on the different tour programs and some merch.
We built through the years a strong relationship of which I am very proud and honored.
These last years, I also toured with Arch Enemy (Japan), Myrath (Europe, USA, Japan and Africa), Accept (Switzerland).

In 2019, I worked on a photographic project combining two different themes : music and wine (yes, this is so French !).

Few months later, that lead to the release of the - widely distributed - book Accords Majeurs : les virtuoses de la musique et du vin (tr. "Major chords : the virtuosos of music and wine" of which I am the proud co-author.

The same year, the massive book Hellfest : le festival raconté par les groupes (tr. "Hellfest : the festival told by the bands") was released, containing about a hundred of exclusive shots I've taken in the last decade. I'm honored to be chosen as the main photographer of this beautiful piece of art.


Through the years, I also took a lot of official promo photos of several bands. Some these as well as some of my live photos were also used in CD/DVD booklets.

Ex : Dream Theater (Live At Luna Park limited-edition Blu-Ray Booklet), Myrath (Shehili Legacy / Live at Sweden Rock 2019)Arkan (Sofia), Pendragon (Out Of Order Comes Chaos), Ayreon (The Source), Jordan Rudess and Steve Horelic (Intersonic), Les Wampas (Never Trust a Best-Of)Emel Mathlouthi (Kelmti Horra)
