Away from home for a few days. I miss the mountains of BC for sure, but this kind sight sure ain’t bad either… Pretty relaxing.

In Erquy, small town somewhere in Brittany, France.

Tomorrow afternoon I will be flying to Edmonton for a super quick trip, but guess who’s coming back to the Vancouver studio first thing tomorrow morning for a brand new video project…

I am pretty stoked about it!!!

More on this very soon…

Here is one more reason why I love Vancouver so very much.

You get to start your day at home or at the studio, work for 5 or 6 hours, then drive 25 minutes and end up in Cypress for a evening ski session.

Yesterday I skied at night for the first time and it was just mind blowing. This picture was taken around 4.30 pm so it’s still daylight (sort of…), but a few minutes later we were skiing in the dark, with only the lights of the Cypress ski complex and the big city of Vancouver all lit up down in the Valley.

Amazing feeling…

Today I went skiing in Cypress. When it is cloudy in Vancouver, you can be sure that you are gonna be above the clouds when you are on the hills.

It is quite a cool feeling when all you see around you is mountain tops and clouds…

This is one of the many reason why I enjoy living in Vancouver.

I flew back from Alberta late last night, and I have seen some crazy things in the past 3 days, some incredibly sad and some very fun and intense.

Yesterday, I spent 6 hours outside by -25 degrees, directing 20 people, 6 trucks and 2 trailers in front of a giant oil rig. And at some point the buttons of my camera started to freeze. My face was red last night too.

In the meantime, as I mentioned here a few days ago, during my latest studio shoot with August Wiled, there might have been another model.

Indeed, Ruffle Silkskin, a Vancouver burlesque dancer came by the studio as well.

I have a lot of very cool photos of her, but for now, as a teaser and transition between August’s shoot and hers, here is a photo of the 2 of them together.

Well this is it Folks, I have officially moved in to a brand spanking new studio in Vancouver.

This project has been on the back burner for quite a while now, and it is finally time to crank things up a notch. In my previous little studio I could shoot one or 2 models at the time, now I can shoot about 20 models + a big truck (not that this kind of setup would ever happen, but if it does, I am ready for it…)

This new venture would not have been possible without my good friend Dina Goldstein, who put all this together. I couldn’t be happier and honored to be able to share the studio with her. You might know her from her internationally famous “Fallen Princesses” photo series. She also recently finished the spectacular “In the doll house” project.

Dina was the first photographer to get back to me when I reached out to people 4 years ago, fresh off the boat from France. And my Canadian career would definitely not have started that fast if it hadn’t been for her.

My first official shoot in the space is this week-end, I’m pretty excited to see what I can do with it.

Stay tuned for some new cool photos.

I’m not that big on Christmas. My better half and I don’t have a Christmas tree, nor do we do the whole presents thing on December 25th.

But I’m a sucker for cool lights and a nice decor, so M and I decided to light our place in a Holiday spirit.

Plus, it’s gonna be great when our friends come for a nice meal in a few days.

I said I didn’t care about Christmas, but I do care about great friends and amazing food.

P.S: If you really want to buy presents and you still don’t know what to get, check this cool list by the brilliant Tim Ferriss, he too believes in the eternal quest to eliminate clutter, therefore hates unnecessary gifts.

Here is a photo I shot 2 years ago and that I never used.

Every now and then I like to go through my archives and see if I missed anything good.

Meet my friend, singer/songwriter Natalie Edward.

I was listening to a Chase Jarvis Interview last night where he stated that, when he first started taking photos, he would do everything in his power to shoot, shoot and shoot some more. This is basically the way I see things as well. And this started way back in the day.

When I was living in Paris, France I would take my trusty bicycle (I actually took it with me to Vancouver!) and would bike around the city at night just to photograph stuff.

The idea at the time was just to get a better understanding of how the ISO relates to the aperture, shutter speed, grain, depth of field and stuff like that. Settings that I don’t even think about today, were not intuitive to me at the time.

Also, I hadn’t figured out that my passion really lies in photographing people not landscapes so I shot whatever was around me. Like the Eiffel Tower or la Seine.

I gotta admit, people often ask me if I miss France and Paris and my answer is always a solid “no”, but no matter how I feel about it, from an architecture point of view, Paris kicks some serious ass.

I spent the past week or so organizing my next shoots in Edmonton and the next ones in Vancouver (as soon as I am back here, on Dec 6th) so I haven’t had time to shoot that much recently.

The good news is that the next 10 days, starting tomorrow, are gonna be crazy busy and I will have a lot to share with you all.

In the meantime, here is a photo that I took a few months ago, that I never got around to processing… Until yesterday.

This is Lizbit, who is somehow rocking the “blond Joan of Arc” look.

I like it. Do you?
