Biography: I taught myself photography at the age of 21 when I injured my knee and was immobilized for a year - this way I could still keep up with my passion for BMX. This was also directly related to my studies in design and widened my set of skills.I was soon drawn to brilliant pictures from people like Manu Sanz or Jeff Zielinski, which I saw regularly in magazines. By luck, photos from my very first films were published in core magazines too.Little by little, I got the chance to travel all around the world, especially to the States where BMX was born. Since then, I have mixed with the best riders and worked for companies such as Vans and Carhartt. I now also run a website called TheDiggest. The Shot: The great magazine 'The Albion' asked me to follow Frenchman Luc Legrand for an article, and we arranged to spend a week on the road all across Spain, living in his van. Luc loves to ride in unique locations even if they are not easy.He remembered a crazy set-up around the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, and we found it again. I was not used to shooting sequences but I thought it would work for this one. I also thought shooting fisheye from below would really capture the movement. After a couple of run-ups, he just did it first go, and I was really happy to catch it first go too! After this, we went back to the van to celebrate and continue our adventures. The winners of the world's largest action sports photography contest are revealed in Hong Kong. The wait is finally over. The 2013 Red Bull Illume Overall Winner, Top 10 category winners and Top 50 finalists were unveiled at a spectacular ceremony held in Ho - Wednesday 12th September 2012 (1 Picture)
