"There's one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment. »
Robert Frank

"in constant representation"

"I mainly work as a wedding photographer. Event photo shoots are very intense days, because in addition to always being vigilant not to miss an important moment, I am also in "constant representation".

During my first years, I had a classic camera bag. As it was a little too "sports bag" for my clients, I ended up investing in a bag from a luxury brand. I fitted out its interior with the compartments of my first camera bag.

This composite bag is not yet the perfect solution. Indeed, this leather bag weighs quite heavy and quickly shears my shoulders. In addition, it resists stains poorly: for two years my bag has had traces of cream puffs following a small accident during a celebration."

Intense evenings

"I mainly work for festivals, galas and private events. When CONTRASTE offered me to test its two bags in real conditions, I thought about it. I can't take any risks with my clients. I can't put myself in trouble because it could make me miss the moment I need to seize. After trying the bags with my equipment, I said OK. 

I have the particularity of shooting in digital and also on film. So I always have two cases around my neck. The [COMPACT/180mm] was perfect so that I could always carry two complementary lenses, a flash and a dozen rolls of 36 exposures. Now, this little bag won’t leave me as it is very practical and discreet on a suit. 

Between two sessions, the [MESSENGER/290mm] allows me to replace my batteries and film and to recover my computer to quickly edit some images. You know everyone is always eager to get the images from the photographer."
