A Selection Of My Best Landscape Pictures

Sulphure Rock Formations, Dallol, Danakil Depression, Ethiopia

Traveling through Asia, Africa & South America, I had the chance to discover and experience some of the most breathtaking Landscapes on this planet, an incredible opportunity for amazing pictures. But not all the pictures of Landscape I especially like were made in “unique places”: more often than not, the right light, the right composition, the right idea enabled me to shoot some of the nicest pictures I have ever made (in my opinion).

A Selection Of My Best Portraits

Holi Festival, Bundi, Rajasthan, India

Discovering new cultures and different lifestyles is definitely one of the highlights when traveling. For me, shooting Portraits of those different cultures too! This is all the more true since traditional ways of life are disappearing at a devastating speed, replaced by a standardized, uniformed way of life. Will we all wear the same Jeans, the same T-Shirts and the same Sneakers soon? Probably! This is also why I try to travel to more remote areas, where people still stick to their culture & traditions.

Travel Photography is as diverse as Travel Experiences can be, and this very diversity is probably the main specificity of Travel Photography. You actually have to cover almost all possible fields of Photography: Portraits / People; Landscapes; Architecture; Wild Life; and maybe Sport in some countries. The main exception might be Studio Photography, which clearly does not occur while traveling (at least not in my experience). And this is what makes Travel Photography so challenging, but also so rewarding, and in any case never boring!

Golden Dal, Lake Dal, Srinagar, Kashmir

No matter where I travel, I immensely enjoy visiting markets. Many of them, especially in Africa & in Asia, but also in the Middle East & in South America, are an assault to your senses: colorful and at times disorientating, aromatic or even intoxicating, vibrant and eventually hectic places… But this is where “the real life” can be found, so different from touristic highlights (though some markets have turned extremely popular in the last years, even amongst tour groups…) Continue Reading →

We traveled the 30 days our visa permitted throughout China’s southwestern provinces in Mai 2008: Guangxi (Guilin, Yangshuo), Sichuan (Chengdu, Leshan, Emei Shan), Yunnan (Lijiang, Dali, Kunming, Yuanyang) & Xishuangbanna (Jingling). This was definitely not enough! Nevertheless, we now know it can be easily done without a common language. This introduction to China also was an immense eye opener and some of the negative concepts we had of this country we corrected or simply vanished! Continue Reading →

  2. Accept pictures from a wider range of photographers than the traditional Stock Agencies (including Amateurs)
  3. Sell the pictures at very low rates (generally less than 1 or 2 USD for a royalty-free image).
