The water stream of Geneva (Switzerland) - 2020.01.12

Welcome to this site, which presents my favourite photos.

I am a 62 year old amateur photographer living in the suburbs of Geneva (Switzerland).

I only started to use a "real" camera, which my father lent to me, at the beginning of 2016.  (I had previously used a simple smartphone for photography). I later acquired a Canon EOS5D MarkIV to be able to use all the lenses that my father bequeathed to me.

As an architect, I am particularly attracted by buildings or bridges with strong contrasts, colours and interesting details, but also like to focus on small objects such as a flower or a piece of electrical wire.

I would describe myself in three words : passionate, curious and eclectic !

New publication !

Some of my photos appear in last issue of the special book "Architecture and Landscapes", published by Camerapixo Editions (see pages 126 to 157). Once again a great honor and a privilege for me...

Proportional_Grids_Manual_V5

A nice method to crop all types of photographs by using special grids as layers in PhotoShop. Very easy to use and so powerful ! The manual is free for downloading. PSD file is sold 20$ :-)

Photography class PCL 2008

This book was created by my father in 2008 when he was 85 years old (!) and still an active member of the Photo Club of Lausanne (PCL).
A must to read, even if some subjects are a little bit obsolete

Retrospective 2018

You can upload here a short extract of my retrospective photography book (mainly architecture)...
