I’m always ready for adventure, and to explore. That’s how my projects have taken me to the Indonesian jungle with Mentawai medicine men, or bathing amongst 100 million pilgrims in India during Maha Kumbh Mela.

I always push to keep innovating in my work, and some of the famous imagery I produced with French Olympic athletes inspired Red Bull to commission me as the first photographer for the launch of Red Bull Photography in 2014.

Because I care about our home, I founded the global Climate Heroes project in 2010, which led me to speak at the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in New York, Creative Mornings Paris, Social Media Week Mexico, and COP21 in Paris in December 2015, when this work was exhibited at the Grand Palais.

You can also hear me discuss some of the advice I received from amazing mentor photographers such as Chase Jarvis and Sebastiao Salgado, and how this shaped the way I do projects everyday. I also try to give back by being a judge for multiple photo competitions and portfolio critiques, or talk about my projects on blogs such as Profoto, 500px, ISO 12000, Petapixel, etc.
