I have lived in Chamonix since 2001 and I've been a photographer for over half my life . I started out as a photo journalist, and currently shoot for a variety of local and international businesses for advertising and marketing.
I speak English natively as well as French.
I am always happiest with my images that make people, pets or places look their very best. I enjoy photographing those special moments in people's lives - whether that be a mountain adventure, wedding, proposal or a ski holiday, a rock climb or a birthday party.
If I can bring a smile to your face when you look back on that day using the photos I have taken, then I know I have done a good job.
I generally have a "stay in the background" photojournalist approach to shooting, as I worked exclusively as a photojournalist for print media for 12 years prior to leaving for France.
And I do an awesome job photographing property for ads or websites. The main Alps Photo portfolio website has a portfolio of property photos and rates for property photography.
Some of my images may look good on your website or hanging on your wall. Here on Alpsphoto.SmugMug you will find some images you can purchase if you like, normally available as prints and other products offered by the photo lab.
If you are a client, can go to the Downloads page to find your event and copy your photos or order prints or other products from the images. The prints are treated by a photo lab in London and are sent on to you directly.
My images are always All Rights Reserved copyright. They are made available after events for your unlimited personal use unless otherwise agreed in our written contract.
If you wish to use an image commercially, you must contact me for permission and my rates. Commercial use means a photo that is used in an item that is sold or which advertises anything for sale - even for a registered charity.
