Born in Marocco in 1972, I grew up in France. I got my master degree in photography at Toulouse, late 1993 (ETPA school)
After my graduation, I moved to Paris, working for a well established professional photographic company (Studio COLLET : www.collet.fr), which is the first european digital studio. I have worked there and learn how to optimize the light for digital use in collaboration with the biggest parisian advertising agencies.
Early 2000, I moved to Tahiti - French Polynesia.
