    "Fred est définitivement quelqu'un qui mérite d'être suivi puisqu'à tout moment il peut vous surprendre avec une nouvelle photo complètement renversante. J'ai découvert son stream il y a un moment déjà et depuis je surveille ses nouvelles photos prises un peu partout - de quoi à rendre jaloux n'importe qui. Continue à nous étonner Fred. J'adore ce que tu fais."

    ""El Gato Negro" is the coolest of cool in France. His shots bring life right to your eyes. He is the meaning of joie de vivre. Someday I hope we can shred together in both of our home countries."
