My cuesports photography work is known internationally and earned me the trust and support of industry leading companies.
Long-term relationships with some of my clients have also turned into partnerships, with an ongoing exchange and many layers of involvement.
I certainly wouldn’t be able to work with the same passion and confidence without the continued support of the following companies:
From the D1x in 2001 to the D4s today, I’ve used Nikon equipment from day one of my professional career. The performance in low-light makes these cameras the best to shoot any indoor sport event such as pool and billiards. Nikon is a world leader in digital imaging, precision optics and photo imaging technology; I use their digital SLR cameras, Nikkor lenses, Speedlights and accessories, as well as the Nikon 1 compact interchangeable lens camera system.
Nikon Corporation, the parent company of Nikon Inc., recently celebrated its 80th anniversary of NIKKOR optics, and announced the production of over 90 million NIKKOR lenses in 2014, creating a new milestone in Nikon’s heritage of superior optics.
Every equipment I’ve owned since I started has been protected by Lowepro bags and cases. From backpacks with a camera and a couple of lenses to rolling cases which can hold almost all of my gear collection, this company provides it all!
…And yet they still innovate and increase the quality of their products every year, by adapting to new demands such as smaller devices, tablets, newer laptop sizes and changing photo industry standards. I’m never disappointed when I see their new collection!
For over 40 years Lowepro has designed and made some of the highest quality protective cases in the world. They build protective, high-quality gear for photography, video and portable electronic devices – for every climate and every condition.
Lexar is the only company on the memory cards market to manufacture every kind of formats, from MicroSD to XQD cards. With so many different cameras and new formats arising, I’ve relied on their products and I can always count on the most professional quality, as well as excellent customer support. Their ‘Workflow’ system of readers is the most effective way to transfer pictures from cards to computers that I’ve ever had the chance of using.
Lexar is a global brand of Micron Consumer Products Group, Inc., a subsidiary of Micron Technology, Inc., one of the largest memory manufacturers in the world. Lexar products include industry-leading memory cards for photography and video, card readers, storage drives, high-performance USB flash drives, and memory cards for mobile devices.
Joby is the inventor of the GorillaPod, a line of flexible tripods that range from the small smartphone version to the professional, sturdy DSLR version. I never go on location without at least a couple of my GorillaPods. They help me set up my remotes or time-lapse cameras in places where classic equipment just won’t fit.
Joby creates well-designed, revolutionary products that inspire the creative and active lifestyle. Based in San Francisco (USA), Joby continues to redefine the consumer electronics and photography markets with its GripTight, Camera Strap and GorillaTorch product lines.
Working with Matchroom has always provided me with the best opportunities to capture the sport under unique conditions. Their stages are all amazing, with creative lighting and fantastic sets. From attending their events as a fan in the 1990s to becoming their official photographer for pool events in the 2000s, I have made many great memories and great work with their crew.
Matchroom Sport owns, manages and promotes sporting events. Led by the founder and owner English entrepreneur Barry Hearn and his son Eddie, it first came to attention in the sports of snooker and boxing and is also involved in pool, bowling, golf, fishing, darts, ping pong, and poker. The company is based in Brentwood, Essex. They are one of the world’s largest suppliers of sports programming, supplying virtually every major broadcaster of sports in the world.
In late 2009 I met Jerry Forsyth and Mike Howerton of AZBilliards. I became involved in the biggest project of my web designer career: rebranding the website and redesigning the user interface. On the programming side was my old buddy Jérôme Desroziers and AZB founder Mike Howerton.
AZBilliards is the biggest news source of pool and billiards on the net, with an audience of over 160,000 unique visitors and 5M pageviews each month. The new version of AZBilliards is the best place where my creativity and cuesports pictures archive could ever have unfolded.
As it is the case for many people, Billiards Digest was my first real connection to the world of professional pool. Reading the stories and seeing the pictures as a teenager gave me a lot of motivation and drive to work with this industry later. After a few years of collaboration on different tournaments, I became more involved in 2014 as a senior photographer, and lately we have launched a project called ‘Freeze Frame’ where I get a double-spread to showcase my work every month.
For nearly 40 years, Billiards Digest has been the No. 1 news source in the industry, delivering unmatched editorial — instruction, tournament coverage, profiles and industry news — and graphic design to its readers. The magazine’s content includes some of the best instructional columns anywhere, professional and amateur coverage, industry news, personality profiles, billiards history and culture, and much more, including many unusual, innovative and highly informative billiard articles found in no other publication of any kind.
