About Photographer

I am a French nature photographer and aurora chaser. I live in the Netherlands and travel worldwide for assignments or workshops. The far north is beautiful and my travels to Greenland, Svalbard and Lapland taught me how fragile the Arctic is. More than anywhere else in the world, there are clear signs of climate change, which affects both the wildlife and the local populations. I have made it one of my goals to contribute raising awareness about the dangers of global warming through my photography.
