Can you tell us the true basis of your inspiration?
My mother inspires me a lot. She’s my role model. Being creative or innovative (out-of-the-box thinker) requires a lot of reflection and research. Good imagery is also achieved when everything is under control. This includes the gear, lighting, props or clothes used.
What is the favourite image you shot recently?
Among the many “good” photos I took recently, I can say that the shoemaker’s photo is one of my favourites. This old friendly and generous person allowed me to get in and shoot him while he was working... This photo is the last one I took of him. I placed him in the middle to highlight him using the light (daylight) entering through the facade windows (behind me) and made sure to have everything else (shop, machines, tools, lights, boots, etc.) using a small aperture through a wide-angle lens.
