About Michael

I am a commercial architecture photographer from Toronto, Canada. When I’m not shooting architecture for my clients, I love to travel the world to photograph urban and natural landscapes.

Originally from France, I fell in love with photography while traveling. With my engineering background and artistic sensibility, I quickly learned how to capture more than snapshots. My passion for architecture led me to focus my photography work around cities and buildings.

In early 2015, I decided to leave my job to work full-time as a commercial architecture photographer. I am working with architects, interiors designers, developers and many more clients to document buildings and spaces. This is a fascinating side of photography, especially in a booming city like Toronto.

The business side of photography is also very interesting to me. When I decided to work as a freelance photographer, it was definitely about the photography, but I also truly enjoy building a business. I like to learn as much as I can and I try to share it with you along the way on my blog.

I hope we get to talk about business, photography and architecture here on the blog or somewhere else like Facebook or Instagram!

Fine Art Prints and Licensing

I also shoot fine art cityscape and architecture images, usually when I am travelling. All my images are available as prints, and can be licensed for any commercial or editorial use. You can view my fine art images in these galleries. Contact me directly for any inquiry.
