about me

My name is Nico,
I’m a Photographer.

Shanghai based photographer, originally from France, I spend most of my time shooting between the Middle Kingdom and the rest of Asia.

I specialize in commercial projects, architecture & design photography, portraiture and travel/adventure series. I also enjoy shooting BTS and events, and often experiment with personal photo or video projects. (blog)

I started being curious about photography when I was a teen. My sister Stephanie introduced me to the dark room and taught me how to develop film. A couple of years later I started traveling, living in different countries and continents, through my studies and career as an engineer.

Photography then helped me to make sense of drastically different and constantly changing environments, people and cultures. What started as a way to document my adventures quickly turned into a means of expression and exploration. Photography allows me to show a personal interpretation of my surroundings, communicate a message or an emotion, and express myself in ways that words can’t.

In 2018, I finally decided to base my life on two of my passions: Photography and Scubadiving. I have been freelancing since then, as a photographer/videographer most of the year, and a PADI instructor whenever the ocean calls!

Having lived in Europe, South America, North America, Africa and Asia has helped me to develop a unique aesthetic sense and perception skills that I use to tell stories with flair and elegance. My versatility, passion and understanding of clients needs have earned me the trust and respect of the people I work with.

From international corporations and advertising agencies, to local startups, magazines, galleries and individuals, my clients are very diverse. I strive for flexibility and delivering high quality images that create emotions and surpass expectations. My work is published in several countries. I am comfortable working in French, English, Spanish and Mandarin, and am available for booking worldwide!
