Simple Session 2017

J’étais la semaine dernière à la Simple Session, un des plus gros contest de skate et de bmx d’Europe . 

I was last week at the Simple Session, one of the biggest skate and bmx contest in Europe.

La Clef était la team photo officielle de l’événement, notre équipe était composée de Nicolas Jacquemin en photo, Baptiste Fauchille en vidéo et Bison Vinz comme Dj sur la legendary afterparty …

  • Voici mes 5 conseils pour ce genre d’événement :

1 : Bien repérer, en venant le plus tôt possible sur le park, faire un tour complet du lieu pour repérer les angles de prise de vue, les accès… cela permet de gagner du temps lors de l’événement. 

2 : Bien connaitre les règles de placement sur un park, les riders sont la pour s’entrainer, ne les gêner surtout pas. 

3 : Privilégier les entrainements pour les photos grand angle, le zoom pendant les finales.

4 : Communiquer avec les riders pour shooter avec eux les tricks et bien se positionner. 

5 : Shooter efficace , ne pas se perdre à tout mitrailler sans réfléchir pendant 4 jours sinon le dérush sera long et fastidieux, il faut s’économiser et réfléchir à ses cadrages à l’avance.

Quand il y a beaucoup de monde sur le même spot, reculez vous et trouvez une autre façon de le shooter pour avoir une photo unique ou changez de spot et revenez après faire votre photo :)


  • Here are my 5 tips for this kind of event : 

1 : Come early to visit the location and find good angles and access, you’ll gain time during the events days.

2 : You need to know the rules of the park, riders are here to train, don’t be in their lines.

3 : Trainings are the best moment for wide angle, because you can be in the middle of the park, zoom will more be used during the finals .

4 : Talk with the riders to find the good tricks to shoot with them and where to position yourself. 

5 : Shoot efficient, don’t shoot too much during 4 days or you’ll be in hard and long work after the event… 

When there are many people on the same spot, you can go somewhere else to not have same pictures as everyone.

Red Bull Illume

I’m so happy that i have 2 pictures in the Red Bull Illume 2016 coffee table book, these two pictures made it in the top 275 on 34 624 images.

The Red Bull Illume is the world’s greatest international photography contest dedicated to action and adventure sports. 

About my two pictures : 

  • Enhance Categorie : SKATE LINES IN COPENHAGEN 

Athlete : Diego Fiorese

I was in Copenhagen a few days for filming a dance competition, when i arrived at the airport there was a big advertising with this place, i directly search the address of « Superkilen » , which is a kilometer long urban park situated just north of copenhagen’s city centre.

 Lucky me the flat where i was staying was really near this area so i asked my friend Diego Fiorese, a really good skater from Brazil living in Copenhagen, for a session there.
On the day of my flight we met there and started shooting on this place with this long lines and i asked him to do a trick at the top of this little hill, after trying some angles i felt this one was the good and he did a switch heel flip drop in with a really high pop first try. 

 For this picture i removed some trees in the background and made a high contrast black and white to make a clear picture with just Diego and black and white lines.
For me it symbolize a vision of life, there can be many way you can take to achieve your goals, you just have to drop in…  


  • Mobile Categorie : SUNDOWN IN PARIS

Athletes : Thibaud Delas and Pierre Delacrose

I was with my crew : La Clef , we had to shoot an advertising for a brand of electronic stabilizer so we called Thibaud, bmx rider, and Pierre, the skater.
We went in Paris, near my flat and lucky us, the weather was really great this day so after we finished filming the advertising, we started a photo session.

 I knew that there was a mobile category this year for the Red Bull Illume so i tried most of my pictures this day with my iPhone. As the sun was going down i thought about a spot in the Accor Hotel Arena where i could do a good picture but unfortunately there was a show there and every access was closed. 

A bit disappointed it ended the day of shooting and while we were going back to the metro i noticed the lines that the sundown made on the floor and took this last iPhone shot.
