TARA OCEAN

ON-BOARD REPORTER AND MULTIMEDIA JOURNALIST

I started working as a photo and video journalist in 2015 and my first mission was aboard the French schooner TARA. I am very grateful for being part again of this incredible adventure, this year 2021.

I will have to document the new TARA MICOBIOMES scientific expedition, first in Chile (from Punta Arenas to Valparaiso), then later in Brazil (from Macapa to Salvador de Bahia).

CLIPPER RACE

ON-BOARD REPORTER

I have heard about CLIPPER ROUND THE WORLD YACHT RACE for the first time when I moved to London in 2016. I remember the big ads in the tube station “Achieve something remarkable, sail around the world”.

Every 2 years, 11 teams of non-professional sailors tackle extreme conditions as they race more than 40.000 nautical miles on 70-foot yachts.

As the On-board reporter for a 7 part television series “The Race of Their Lives“, this is a 24/7 job : no shower, no privacy, we share the boat with 20 people in quite extreme conditions, living sometimes at 45 degrees angle and sleeping like in a washing machine… So far, Clipper still remains the biggest challenge of my life!

T3 AVENTURES

PHOTOGRAPHER AND FILMAKER

I had never ridden a motorcycle before starting to work for T3 AVENTURES, in 2018. Since then, I have traveled more than 40.000 km on a maxi trail as a photographer and videographer.

For the last 3 years, I have been part of several expeditions: Australia, France-Perse, Bangkok-Paris and Paris-Tokyo. These experiences have led me to work in some of the most remote places on the planet : from the Australian outback to the treasures of the Silk Road…
