After leaving school in Paris and a rather brief stay at the University of Sussex I finally enrolled at the London Film School.
I started out in reportage photography (single exhibition at The Gallery Westland Place, Human Rights Issues sponsored by The Body Shop) as well a directing pop promos for Kosmo Records covering their Rave and Cruise Tours through Europe and Africa for artists like Tom Novy, Afrika Islam and Millenia Nova.
Eventually I got serious about moving images, rising through the ranks in the Camera Department, focus pulling for great DoPs and eventually I got to light commercials, corporate films and documentaries.
I prefer an informal and subtle approach without too much staging and the use of available light whenever it makes sense. I believe the magic of an image can be achieved by capturing the right moment rather than forcing it too much.
I live in Munich with my wife and two children.
