As many of you know or can imagine, there is a big difference between the real world and the tests or reviews that you can find on the internet…What interests me is how a double-page photo in a magazine looks, if the focus in very complex light situations responds well and if it can physically endure the hustle and bustle.

The only thing that is clear to me about inspiration, is that sometimes it just doesn’t come to me. I think that this is a relatively general truth for anyone who is creative person. Photography is of course one of those creative endevours in which one can suffer a terrible lack of inspiration.
I think it is common to have the feeling that our photography is undervalued, I also firmly believe that this is due to the large amount of photographic content that is on-line and its consequent valuation in number of likes or shares or things of that kind. Therefore, it is normal, especially if you are just starting out, to feel that your photography does not matter to anyone and it is probably true…to some extent.
As many of you know, Christelle and I travel regularly to Nepal thanks to the on-location workshops that we host, as well as for projects that we develop there like the one that was recently published in National Geographic.
Leica cameras are undoubtedly objects of desire.
Sure, you can tell yourself that it is silly to want one, that their technology is outdated and that they are not ‘all that’ or remind yourself that your pockets aren’t deep enough in order to dissuade yourself from that ostentatious whim – after all, a Leica, like any other camera, is nothing more than a black box with a hole to capture images…

We all know that being a photographer is a relatively lonely passion/profession, and for good reason: Good photography, like wine, takes time and the doses of patience needed is not always shared by those with whom we spend our vacations with.
One of the first things we hear, when we start to get serious about our photography, is that it is essential that we use the .raw format since it has many advantages when it comes to processing our images…So why wouldn’t we use it?
In documentary or street photography there are several types of photos that are essential to take to explain a story: Place (The where) Action (It is the plot, the reason for the story) Details (It brings you closer to the action and makes you better understand the particularities of the action) and the portrait.
