I started in 1974 shooting concerts for a very small french music magazine. I had the privilege of making images of almost all of the top rock and jazz bands in the world from Little feat to the Doobie Brothers and The Rolling Stones.
A short while after I started working on street and travel photography.
In 1991 I took the job of Press and Publicity manager for the PBA (Professional Boardsailors association) I kept shooting all the events and got published in over 200 magazines. I now work as a freelance photographer/journalist, and I am the editor of Shades of Grey Fine Art photography magazine.
