Parc Naturel Régional du Luberon

I would heartily recommend a visit to the Parc Naturel régional du Luberon if you have the chance. The region is incredibly picturesque. I recently passed through the area on the way to Avignon TGV, and after stumbling upon La Coquillade, where I enjoyed a quick lunch, enjoyed the opportunity to spend a few hours exploring the area.

Cannelle Bulard, or, ‘A Portrait of a Surfer’

I met Cannelle Bulard in the French town of Anglet at a restaurant on the beach, eating moules-frites and drinking ice-cold Coca Cola. She approached the table with her board before introducing herself. I then asked her a few questions and teased her about whether she was any good. She shyly informed her audience that she had travelled most of the world on tours and recently become champion of Europe. Needless to say, the teasing stopped.

This shot was taken just after she came out of the water later that day. She had been surfing for a few hours.

I have since licensed the shot to Rip Curl, who sponsor Cannelle, for use on their site here.

Street Photography II, or, ‘In the Metro’

This, the second post in a street photography series, focuses on the Parisian metro, and the characters found in it.

These are two of the more controversial photographs I’ve taken.

Street Photography I, or, ‘The Two Saints’

The next few posts in this gallery will include some of my street photography from 2011. These shots have been posted elsewhere, but not yet to this gallery. I consider these images, and this period, extremely important in shaping me as a photographer. Please note that whenever possible, I obtain permission from the subjects of my photos.
