Page 21: I travel a lot, with my camera, of course.
Amazon 1986, China 1991, Arctic 1984.

 

The Amazon in 1986
No, I’m not always dressed up as a native. Yes, in the Amazon rainforest, it’s the humidity and the bugs that are the most insufferable. Lucky me, I even caught malaria, although thankfully I was mostly cured in 2014 thanks to artemisinin. Long live modern medicine!

Here in Amazonia in 1987

China 1991

1991: You should see the bicycle traffic jam in Shanghai. Better: you should participate.

Processing silkworm cocoons


Allain Weiller (in the pirate costume, a musician who runs a recording studio in Boulogne these days),
Dr Nicole Bordes (the blue Chinese princess who has since gotten her pHd and is a researcher for VisLab at the University of Queensland in Australia)
And yours truly (disguised as a communist) playing badminton in a street in Shanghai.
Chinese passersby stood gaping at this scene. Maybe they only knew ping-pong. Photo by Anne-Liz Vessière, a singer.


Arctic 1984: leaving from Bettles, Alaska, population 12, close to the North Pole, with the intrepid Barry Moss who now lives in Seffner, Florida.
It was Barry who initiated me, earlier, to glacier-climbing. We left together from Florida and we took planes which became smaller and smaller, and it became colder and colder.
Coming straight from Florida, it took me a week to start feeling well at - 40° (interestingly, this is where the Celsius and Fahrenheit scales meet up, -40° C = - 40° F)
At 40 degrees Celsius below zero, photography becomes very difficult: the films become brittle, the batteries stop working, the cold metal rips off your eyebrows, the frost created by your breath obstructs the viewfinder, you have 20 seconds max without gloves to change the film roll by pulling off your external glove (there is another, thinner polyprolene glove underneath).










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.
