I'm a traveler obsessed about urban night photography, cityscapes and skylines

I strongly believe that photography is the ability to seize a precise moment, and therefore an image should not be altered by post-treatment (exposure correction, color correction, Photoshop...). Therefore all my shots respect this guideline.

Nowadays, people are so used to see “perfect pictures”, where colors are over saturated, and where light and contrast are corrected. Is there no place for imperfection any more? Life is full of imperfection.
Sometimes, a missed shot turns out to be great. That’s just the mystery about photography, and that’s why I love it.
If you take a picture in colour, don't open Photoshop to change it to black white because it looks better!
When you take the picture, it's YOUR DECISION TO MAKE, to switch your camera into black and white mode.
Photography is all about feelings, and sometime you just get that feeling to take that picture in black and white.
A good tip : when you want to take a picture of something that looks sad or "lugubre" (example a dead tree), most of the time, it'll look better in B&W
