“All photos are accurate. 
None of them are the truth.”

Pro with ski socks?

"As the majority of my clients are art galleries or architects, I always move in a studio or on a building site with my cameras, lenses, light stands, flashes, cables, tripod, laptop... In short, with thousands of euros of equipment on me, I could quickly become a target for pickpockets.

For several years now, I have therefore adopted the strategy of going incognito by refusing to use classic camera bags. Indeed, I buy suitcases and sports bags that look like nothing.

However, dealing with certain clients, I sometimes have the impression of not looking very professional. Since my bags don't have compartments, I use thick ski socks to store and protect my lenses. "

a photo shoot in London

"I was loaned the [MESSENGER/290mm] for a two-day photo shoot in London. It's a good format: thanks to the compartments I was easily able to pack my MacBook Pro, my two SLR cameras, one 50mm, one 24mm, and one 105mm, a few flashes and my set of accessories. This represents at least 12kg, and I confirm that the shoulder strap absorbs the weight well.

When I got to Saint Pancras station, I was surprised by a terrible downpour. To reach my hotel, a 5-minute walk away, I preferred to run in the rain rather than wait in the long queue of taxis. My gear stayed dry and well maintained."
