In 1992, Jeff Tombeur wrote: “Our math-whiz Photographer has gone to the North Pole, where he photographed the ice, to the Amazon, where he photographed the rainforest and contracted malaria, to China where he photographed the Chinese, to Hollywood, where he photographed ladies, to the Far West, where he photographed the Indians”.


My land photography equipment at the time, around 1986.

All this on behalf of Simply Living (Australia), Applied Arts (Canada), Penthouse (UK), Asian Diver (Singapore), Popular Photo (USA), and BBC Wild Life Magazine (England), Photography International Magazine (New Zealand) and many more of magazines from around the world."

I completed a number of fashion gigs, advertisements, object catalogs, VIP portraits, Industrial and Social reports, etc.…
My attitude is one of extreme professionalism. I am very well-equipped. My clients appreciate my know-how, my courtesy, and my serious approach to my work.

Christian Fournier : “ To apply oneself to a single subject where style is, admittedly, the key to success for many famous photographers but an attack to open-mindedness and creativity”

If you are offended by photos of somewhat undressed pretty women, do not scroll to the bottom of this page.


I’m more of a Mac guy, but for an International ad for the launch of Windows 95, the client is king!


The Amazon estuary. The piranha was dead.


I have never used a Minolta in my life





I photographed Petra Lindblad, top model, in Hollywood, in 1993. Petra has also been photographed by, amongst others, the famous German photographer Peter Lindberg for the French Vogue magazine. I meet Peter Lindberg later, in his house rue de Savoie in Paris, to give him an introduction course to computers.

I want to thank Nigel Atherton for this publication.



I have a very critical mind and immediately see things to improve around me.
In the United States I was warmly thanked for sharing my comments, for possible improvements, but in France, no, people get upset and do not listen.

Example: On cruise ships, already in 1980, passengers were invited, at the end of the cruise, to fill out a comment form. To motivate them, a lucky draw of all these cards was organized in the entertainment room, with all the passengers, just before disembarquation. The winner was entitled to a free cruise, on the date of his choice. So 98% participation!
All cards were read, classified and commented on the next cruise, in the presence of all department heads, including myself, the chief photographer. This was based on the percentages, if more than 10% of the passengers commented that the handles of the rear deck coffee cups were not ergonomic, they were changed immediately. Etc ...
I was very impressed by this efficiency.
If an employee received more than three nominative very negative comments (we all had badges with our names and functions on board ex: CHRISTIAN FOURNIER, PHOTOGRAPHER CHIEF), he was immediately fired.
I was very impressed by this efficiency.


To be free lance in France is not easy:
- Regardless of what is written on quotes and bills, customers pay when they want. In the United States my payments have always been within the week, and often immediately upon receipt of photos.
- French customers often add hours or additional services after the signature of the quote, without even asking if there may be a prise increase.
- French customers cancel or move photo shoots, sometimes the night before, without ever worrying about my agenda.

Here are about 620 examples of my photographic event coverage since 1984, that is to say, 30 years. This is without counting those which my clients have requested that I do not show and photos that have been lost.

I know it's enormous.
No, I am not a photographic robot: my mother had me tested



This list begins with the compilations: Fashion & Models, Lingerie, Beauty, Makeup & Hair, Portraits, Events, Objects, Archi & Deco, Industry, Press, Celebrities, etc.



The sensors and web capabilities from 1995 to 2005 were horrible compared to now (2021). 40 KB max by images. My uploads at this time were therefore bad. I replace them little by little. It's long. Thank you for your indulgence.

Conclusion 1: I must not be bad, so that all these people trust me.
I have loyal customers, a sign that they are satisfied with my services. Examples: Tollens, MEDEF, Dior, GMF, Unesco, L'oréal, Anaé, Agefiph, Essilor, Genzyme, Embassy Ireland, The Advertisers Club, Garmin, VW, etc. ...

Conclusion 2: Thanks to all these varied clients (industry, wedding, corporate and personal portraits, press, events, objects, medical, culinary, diving, sports, pageants, etc. ..), I see extraordinary slices of life, confidential or public, trades and fabulous countries. I do feel very privileged. Real life, live. Thank you customers.

In rough estimation, I take 5,000 photos a week. 5,000 x 52 = 260,000 a year. For 35 years = 9,100,000 photos. Well, I would like to reach 10 million anyway!

Conclusion 3: Photography is my language

There is also a search command, not always up to date, but pretty comprehensive on all my reportages.

MY BLOGS


Not many photographers have the courage to show their photos on a daily basis. I do it to show that in a wide range of photography, I always take good photos for my clients. Technical perfection and an obvious sensitivity. If you imagine the logistic necessary for these missions (estimates, preparations, equipment, transports in traffic jams, safety, etc.), you can see that I am a photographer who achieves results in all circumstances.
