ME, MY CLIENTS, MY ACHIEVEMENTS!
I have always had a passion for photography. When I was a kid, I use to take pictures with a little McDonald toy camera and later, in my teenage years, my parents bought me my first real camera. Those cameras filled a LOT of shoe boxes with memories of everything and anything.
I would never have thought that years later my pictures would appear in international publications like Sports Illustrated, ESPN Magazine, The New York Times and National Geographic. Fun fact: my first image ever published in Sports Illustrated was a double track of a jumping polar bear. I cannot say it is 100% accurate, but I'm pretty sure it was the first (and maybe last!) time an animal was pictured in the Leading Off section of SI.
But it was during high school and my first couple of semesters at Laval University that photography really hooked me off.
It was then that I landed my first real job as a professional photographer for a small company called Photo Action. I was hired to photograph high school and college sport teams on a regular basis and it allowed me to perfect my craft as an action photographer.
More or less a year into it, I started my own company and begin to land assignments from newspapers and wire agencies. The year was 2006 and since then, I've never look back!
Over the years, I have built a clientele of corporate and editorial clients that include Thomson Reuters, The Canadian Press, Getty Images, The Globe and Mail, La Presse, The New York Times, The Toronto Star, The Canadian Olympic Committee, Mazda, Desjardins, Red Bull, TD Bank, USports, Canadian Tire, Quebecor, ABB, Davie Shipyard, Sherwin Williams, Gatorade and many others.
Nowadays, I live in Quebec City and focus my work on sports photography and editorial assignments.
