I have always loved taking pictures of people, places, recording and imortalising scenes. So, documenting other people's lives became my job. Based in London, I have been a freelance photographer for the last 10 years. I regularly work with Time Out London and other UK papers and magazines. I also contribute to the continental press (Le Figaro, Le Soir, l'Agefi, Cote Ouest, Marie-Claire, Groupe Bayard-Presse...). I either get commissioned or pitch stories and ideas. I also work for the American Travel Guides, Frommers's. I also have private and corporate clients for whom I do portraits, I shoot social events, celebrations, reportages. And I have my personal projects which find their place in magazines, books, websites and advertising like my work on Gypsies and Travellers in the UK and my long-term project with Romanian ex-orphans I used to know in the 90s and recently met again and photographed.
