What can I do for you?
I'm a visual storyteller passionate about finding magic in the mundane and extraordinary in the ordinary.
I have more than 10 years of experience in crafting documentary, editorial and branded contents from early concept to post-production.
I directed, filmed, and edited dozens of short and mid form videos for clients ranging from VICE Media, Rakuten TV, The Belgian public television RTBF, Arnette Eyewear, Nike, Iittala Glassworks, Sonar Festival, among others. I work either on my own or with filming crews. My work was recognised in various international film festivals.
During pre-production, I do research when the story doesn't exist yet and write treatments and scripts. I can set up teams adapted to the context and available budget.
During production, I can operate the camera or work with a DoP, interview contributors and / or direct crews or talents.
During post-production, if not editing myself, I follow-up the post-production process until delivery.
Depending of your needs, I can be in charge of everything or only a specific part of the process.
As photographer, I document events with a personal vision and a narrative oriented approach to convey a story to the viewer in a way that is not only visually and emotionally strong, but also informative and insightful.
I've covered events for Primavera Sound Festival (ES), Bestival (UK), Secret Garden Party (UK), Mobile World Congress (ES), Marriot Hotels aswel as several behind the scenes for film and advertising productions in Europe and the United States.
