But his success and his style, his humanity that comes out of his pictures have led him on this path. « I have learned all this on my own. I discover my own style, larked to capture special little moments, how to use different kinds of equipment and how to apprehend the most technical parts of photography […] I want to continue to learn, evolve and share my work », says he.
