"Sometimes, a picture is worth more than a 1000 words"

......this is my ultimate goal, this is what I am trying to achieve every time... I click !

 

I know, I won't reach my goal all the time but I keep trying and I keep enjoying the challenge!

 

I am an amateur, my studio is my camera and it could be anywhere. For me, the ordinary doesn't exist..... life and nature are a constant stimulus and a source of nourishment for my creative mind.

 

As Henri Cartier Bresson once said : "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."....and I totally agree!

 

To conclude, I want to thank you in advance for your comments......you can be assured that I read each and everyone of them and that they are very important for me.

 

Hoping that my pictures will please your eyes and your mind as much as I had fun capturing them!

 

Best regards and see you virtually,

 

Imapix....... Gaëtan

Unique is the only way to describe Gaëtan's photography. Somehow he manages through a simple, unfussed with photo to write his signature all over it. Every shot holds a small fairy tale that is his and his alone. Thank you, Gaëtan, for you little fairy tales - they are truly inspiring and beautiful.

Whenever I need a boost to my spirit I head over to Gaëtan's set of animal portraits. Gaëtan is a master photographer who captures the true essence of the creatures with whom we share this planet. So many of us -- humans -- live in urban areas with very little connection to wilderness and wild creatures. Maybe we forget to stay aware of that wildness that could inspire us to be more nurturing of our Earth home. Even people who live in rural areas may never have the privilege to see -- up close and personal -- the kind of animals Gaëtan photographs. Or the kind of amazing expressiveness he captures. It is through Gaëtan's generosity -- and through the generosity of so many excellent photographers on Flickr -- that we will remember what life all over the planet is really like. And will take to heart the urgent call to protect all of life. Thank you for always sharing your talents and vision with the rest of us on Flickr, Gaëtan. It is folks like you who make Flickr such a wonderful community. Not just for eye candy, but for changing our lives as well.

In the three years I have known Gaëtan he has consistently produced images of the most stunning quality. His eye for composition and colour is not just the best on Flickr - but among the best of any photographer I can think of. If you ever need to be uplifted, if you ever want to experience being in awe of pure, natural photographic talent - simply visit his photostream (or, better still, play his "My Expressions" slideshow!). I very much hope that we get the opportunity to meet in person one day so that I can offer more personal thanks for all of the inspiration and sheer joy of amazing imagery he shares with us here.

Gaétan est un photographe extraordinaire ici, et certainement un de mes préférés. Ses photos sont bien plus encore qu'un hommage à la nature. C'est une ode à la vie, à ses beautés, à ses plaisirs et à ses bienfaits. Toute sa galerie est un enchantement pour les yeux mais aussi pour l'âme. Des scènes souvent dépouillés, sobres ... qui illustrent parfaitement bien sérénité, solitude, "zénitude"pour employer ses mots. Gaétan possède cette qualité execptionnelle, et c'est rare, de mettre des images sur ces états, ces sensations. Brillant, talentueux, il possède de plus un sens de l'humour délicieux ... Gaétan, j'adore tout simplement ce que tu fais ... continue de nous faire planer encore longtemps ... on en veut ... encore :)) Christiane ************** Gaétan is a brilliant and very talented photographer ... he keeps amazing me with touching and poetry in his photos ... Have a look in his stream and you'll understand what I mean ... and ... Enjoy !

Imapix is a truly talented photographer and I always enjoy to look through his stream. I remember when I first saw it, and how surprised and impressed I got to see such nice pictures. He has a great ability to see pictures, compose them in a beautiful way and make colours and light form a synthesis.

Gaëtan… Found his site almost a year ago. Could not keep my mouth closed while viewing his site. Every image perfect in every way… Light, composition, impact, design, colour, creative, dramatic, the ART of seeing. It is easy to tell this is not a hobby, but a way of life and seeing, as if he sees, captures, and processes in one step. Like all excellence he makes it look so simple as absolutely nothing is out of place. Kind of like he comes home everyday and connects the computer to the side of his head and processes and downloads as the minds eye sees these wonderful images. Fantastic world and glad he shares his vision with us. I have learned much from him and know we share a love of nature and art. And he is one of my favorite Artists. I always look forward to his comments and support, which are valued and cherished! He is a master! And flirkr would not be the same without him! Thank you!

I go to his Photostream often and I'm never disapointed by his work or his creative passion! Most importantly for me however is his constant encouragement! He is quite generous with his comments, he puts a smile on my face. He is my inspiration. Thank you for being my friend Gaetan.

Gaëtan is one of Flicrkr's true treasures. Not here for forwarding a photographic career, only interested, seemingly, in creating stunning images, and he delivers, in bucket loads. An eternal source of inspiration in his use of light and photoshop, he should be on commission for the money he must be bringing into Canada's tourism industry! And if that wasn't enough I've yet to meet a more giving, encouraging person in terms of photographic encouragement. Salut! Mon ami!

Imapix (Gaetan) is one of my most treasured contacts.... He is talented, positive, intelligent, witty, and first class. I view his photostream nearly every day. Gaetan has a rare and precious gift. He is "in sync" with nature - with beauty - and successfully interprets and captures it with his lens. When I view his splendid photography, I share in his passion and joy. His inspirational and creative work never fails to renew my sense of wonder. Besides having passion, creativity, and technical skill, my friend Gaetan has STYLE!!! Like works of Rembrandt or Degas or Ansel Adams, Gaetan has an unmistakable style! Even though he photographs a wide array of subjects, all of his images somehow seem to bear his imprint. In my opinion, Imapix elevates the status of flickr with every image he posts. Check out his marvelous work, and I am sure you will agree.

It's clear: sooner or later any person that enters Flickr will discover Gaëtan. Will stand looking at his photos with surprise and pleasure. Sustained quality over all his stream that makes reviewing it a pleasure. That happened to me. Since I saw his great landscapes (I love the snowed ones), macros and photography in general, I knew he was one of the best of Flickr... After more than a year looking at great Flickr photos, I still say the same: he is one of the best in Flickr! Hugs! diego.

Constant quality in photography is a rare thing, which should not come as a surprise as the constant quality of life itself is a myth. Gaëtan however manages to show us a distinct and highly evolved international language of images that remain suprisingly stable in both quality, freshness and creativity. How does the man do it? This high-ranking Flickr personality and this friendly smiling fellow flyfisherman has become a benchmark all by himself and I count myself among his many enthusiastic admirerers, doing so eagerly and proudly. I'm glad I came to know Gaëtan from afar. Great close-up mon ami!

There are two things that have impressed me about Imapix.....his incredibly prolific talent and his willingness to embrace the work of others with sincere enthusiasm. How he finds the time to comment and fave so many is hard to fathom. He encourages and instills confidence with his sincere and warm remarks. He finds the magic in the light and color and paints pictures that take the breath away with their complexity and beauty. Some day, spend a few hours wandering through his photostream. It will astound you.
