  • Since when have you been photographing Cannes?  2014
  • What is the favourite shot you have taken of Cannes? I was able to photograph Le Suquet from Super Cannes with a large zoom, which offered a fairly rare viewpoint. I think that the answer is in one of these photos.
  • What is your best photo memory of Cannes? A memorable sunset from La Pointe Croisette.
  • In a few words, tell us why you like taking photographs of Cannes. The hills, the sea, a good exposure for sunrises and sunsets, the heritage, the walls that have a story to tell, historic and lively districts, others that are calmer and wilder. In short, a delight in every season.
  • And if you had to describe Cannes in just 3 words? Sea, History, Sun, Cinema (drat, that’s 4...).
