Everything looks easy, effortless.
Behind an image quickly consumed, there are hours of work.
I could move heaven and earth to realize my ideas. I do researches on the subjet, I run everywhere to borrow from one, to buy from another, I handcraft myself, I go around thrift stores, garage sales... and when necessary, I even «borrow» my own child!
A few times, I even took an extra hour or two to draw what I had in mind so that I could better explain my initial idea and its composition to the photographer.

It goes without saying that photographers are extremely important in the creative process.
Without them, none of my ideas could become reality.
I particularly like photographers who have this remarkable humility, who are receptive to my ideas, who have this sincere desire to give them life, and who easily let me take the lead.
I also love when in return, once my goal is reached, the photographer suggests exploring diverse variations from the original idea. It is by such experiments that real little treasures can come alive through the camera.
On the day set for the project, the car packed, the address in hand and ready to head for the destination, the stage fright is indeed present, just as the actor who is preparing to go on stage.
Our mission accomplished, we just feel invincible, complete. Could this be what we call PASSION?
When you look at a photograph, take a few moments just to appreciate the idea or the message of it, and try to find out who is the author of each detail. You will probably be surprised to discover the versatility of some of these amazing artists and who knows? Maybe they will inspire you to go further in your own artistic exploration?
