A graduate in business and financial management, he spent the first 12 years of his professional life in finance working on the financial markets (Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi) and for a media agency on international budgets (Carat International/Aegis Group).

In 2001, he decided to change careers. He trained in photography at the Centre Iris in Paris and, along with colleagues, set up the Dolce Vita collective. He obtained a CAP (Certificate of Professional Aptitude) in photography in 2003. In 2010, he followed a Ministry of Defence awareness programme on the risks of grand reportage missions in conflict zones at the CNEC.

He collaborates regularly with the French and International press, as well as with public institutions and private groups.

A traveller and a sportsman, he likes to roam, sail and paraglide.
