From photographer to fishing guide...
|For twenty years I travelled all
over the world as a photo-reporter for the french
Photoa-gencies Sygma and Gamma and worked as a freelance
for many different magazines, such as the Figaro,
Géo, the Sunday Times or Bunte magazine.
One day I decided to settle down, start a new life
on Belle-ile and become a fishing guide.
Birth of a passion...
My love of the
sea began...in the countryside where I was born!
The nature was wonderful and as soon as I could,
I would run to the pond crowded with fish. I
would sit there, day dreaming for hours, imagining
what was happening beyond the woods and the
hills. I was always climbing up trees and roofs,
always wanting to see further and further, beyond
my small horizon.
Discovery of the world
After four years at law school in Paris, I
became photo-reporter for the big french Photo-agencies,
Gamma and Sygma and later on for various magazines.
I traveled in many parts of the planet , I learnt
a lot about the world, witnessed wars and met
the worst and the best of the people.
It is not at the other end of the world though
that I discovered my little " paradise
on earth" but on a small island off the
coast of Brittany called Belle-ile en mer. There,
with my enthusiastic little family I decided
to embark on a new adventure.
I am a nationally accredited fishing guide
and instructor and have also a sea captain degree
