About Me

Nothing but the naked truth.

Open to TF photo sessions, can consider trade for hosting. Please read my info before contacting me.

My name is Erik. I am French and based in Paris, working as a professional photographer.
Apart from working on environmental, travel and wildlife topics, I have personal interest in shooting art with models. I don't discriminate in the choice of people I work with. They are of different gender, ethnicity, religion, age, silhouette, background, job, whatsoever. Sometimes they come at my studio... sometimes I go to their place... sometimes we meet outdoors in Paris... sometimes we travel together. As my job requires me to travel in France and worldwide, there are many options to meet and work.

My studio (Atelier Voltaire) is located in central Paris, in a safe area near Bastille. It is set up so as to work with both natural and artificial light. There are also great underground places and cool outdoors close to the studio, for adventurous models.

Because this is how I am, I like to work with passionnate, fun and trustworthy people. There is no money involved in my production, yet I can help travelling models offering private accomodation in my safe and cosy area.

Photos in my portfolio show samples of what I shoot, not my latest work.

* Coming to Paris ?
I'm open to trade for hosting.
Please add references to your message.

* Travelling ?
Ask for my travels to come : we may meet and work where you live, or travel together on a current project.
My last travels included Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Scotland, USA, Brazil.
