SPECIALIZED IN WORLDWIDE EXPEDITIONS

#nature, #sports, #sailing, #science, #adventure

Embark with me on an adventure off the beaten path. Through the lens, I am eager to share travel tales, inspiring stories, smiles, and tears, all while capturing the beauty and fragility of our world.

Since 2015, I’ve been crisscrossing the globe, both on land and ocean. Specializing in itinerant missions and scientific expeditions, I produce reports for international television, the web, and print media. It’s a passion-driven job to which I’ve wholeheartedly dedicated nearly a decade.

See below some of the most memorable experiences.

Maéva managed to capture some of the best footage of oceanic storm-driven waves in the North Pacific I have ever seen.

ON BOARD REPORTER | SCIENCE JOURNALIST

TARA OCEAN FOUNDATION

My first experience as an On-Board Reporter (OBR) was on the schooner Tara, in 2015. I’ve had the privilege of embarking multiple times: from the canals of Patagonia to Antarctica and the Amazon River…

My role is to document the expedition using various forms of media: podcast, video, photo, and writting. Through inspiring stories, the goal is to engage the general public and raise awareness about the significance of understanding and protecting the ocean.

The Tara Ocean Foundation project was a revelation and has fueled my passion as a journalist for several years now.

CLIPPER ROUND THE WORLD RACE

In 2016, freshly arrived in London to improve my English, I stumbled upon subway ads promoting a round-the-world sailing adventure: ‘Achieve something remarkable: sail around the World.‘ A few months later, after numerous tests and interviews, I joined the journey as an On-Board Reporter.

My role was to document life aboard the racing boats for a television series called ‘The Race of Their Lives.’ A relentless job: on board, around twenty people sharing a confined space, no showers, no privacy, and tossed by extreme navigation conditions, such as a hurricane!

Clipper remains the biggest challenge of my life!

T3 AVENTURES

In 2018, I traded sailing boats for maxi-trail motorcycle adventure road trip. I set off to various destinations to capture images of journeys organized by T3 Aventure agency.

The most memorable one was the transcontinental ride from Bangkok to Paris: a three-month road trip along the Silk Road. The landscapes traversed are unforgettable, and it’s also a journey through history, cultures, and civilizations.

PS: I had never ridden a motorcycle before and I passed my initiation with flying colors, tallying up nearly 40,000 km* in just a few months!

*as a passenger, but it still counts, right?
