Dear Ben, how did your passion begin ?

Yes, in a special school in the south of France (ETPA).

How long could you be far from your camera ?

I've always in my pocket a "compact".

Who are your favorite photographers ?

My favorite is Hervé Lewis (renowned for the french Aubade Series).

Is your photography mostly about nudes ?

Artistic Nude (it's my favorite subject because woman body is always perfect) and Landscapes.

Do you plan every details of your shootings ?

I never plan anything.

"Cindy 2"

I'm sure you're particularly inspired by a type of location...

Yes, outdoors, in the forests above all.

So ? Your preferences ?

Mostly Black & White, and outdoors because there is a real light with beautiful shadows.

Some words about your models ? Maybe about a shooting that you particularly liked ?

Often my models are my friends. All my shootings are always fun. My favorite was for the Series "Isabelle Forest", a lovely model with beautiful curves.

A message to send ?
