Where are you from? How does that place influence the way you photograph?
I’m French originally from France, but I was born in the US and have lived in South America. I guess I could call myself a ‘third culture kid’. I’ve been living in Canada for 4 years now and this country has inspired me. The amazing landscapes, I find these great open spaces really interesting to work with.

What are your favorite environments to shoot in?
My favorite environments to shoot are the mountains and the ocean. I feel like you can be a lot more creative when you have all the space you need.

What are the strengths of shooting primarily mobile? How does this affect your imagery?
Shooting with your phone makes everything easier, for one only reason, you always have your phone with you, and you never know where your day may take you.

Who and what are the things that inspire you?
Nature inspires me, going on road trips with my fiancé, traveling and meeting with my family or friends, or just being by myself in front of the ocean.

Favorite instagrammers?
It’s very hard to choose but, my favorite instagrammers would be @alexstrohl, @dirka and @othellonine.

Tell us a little about your everyday.
My fiancé and I will be moving to L.A in august, I’m sad to leave Canada but excited for a new life, meet new people and discover California.

Which Apps do you use to edit your pictures?
To edit my pictures I mostly use VSCO, Snapseed and Afterlight.
