Last spring Ptor Spricenieks, Nicolas Aubert and myself climbed and skied the famous Glacier Noir in le Parc National des Ecrins. It is in print in Ski Mag now and online on the Black Diamond website, support of these great adventure skiers.

One of my favorite portrait was selected as a finalist to the Re:ACTION contest of the Telus festival of Whistler. Final result will be released soon. I rescan the old 6*7 tri-X negative for the contest and was really amazed by what a Pentax 67 was able to produce some years ago.

I was yesterday in Basel, CH, to shoot portraits of RAYMOND WEIL CEO & President as well as the wonderfull booth at BASELWORLD.

NEW ECO GUNS for 2010

It was time to go skiing this morning. We try 2 new set-up for the fresh snow with two very different design : the 205 Peugeot and the Rossignol S7 (with ATbindings-the eco part). Finally both share a very soft frame and floating feeling, cost almost the same price, and allow the pow to be ridden !

Rude FS/FR/video/photo contest. We were pround to take this 2nd place behind the local team but in front of a really strong Oakley team too. Thanks to my teamates Manu Gaidet, Jean-Mi Gouadain and Mr Kuge for walking, shoveling and flying so much. Mathias Lopez kill the video contest. See you next year. details on Skipass
So much snow in ISOLA 2000

I go shooting the last ressort of the Alps before the sea with Roof, Rich Permin and Aurelien Fornier. It was incredibly snowy and cold. And we find really nice spot specially the now promised to fame "Bunker Drop".
McKinley shoot in Madagascar

This year we visit madagascar to shoot the McKinley collection in a true wild place. The whole staff finally survive this ten days shoot involving trekking, bivouac, wild plane landing, short sleep and third world usual troubles. It was above all a great team work, and an exceptionnal blend of luck and fine planning from brand manager Nicolas Thibault. Hopping to keep with this pace for a while...
