"J'ai choisi cette année de privilégier l'impression numérique grands formats sur papier ou sur toile.
Les dimensions vont de 30 x 30 cm jusqu'à 120 x 180 cm ou 144 x 144 cm.
J'ai une préférence pour la finition sur toile de lin montée sur châssis, à la manière d'un tableau.
Aucun encadrement n'est nécessaire, la finition est de premier ordre et l'impact visuel est garanti."

    "Besides been a great master of photography, having a great eye for details, Philippe is kind, generous and someone that has inspired me to learn and better this beautiful and fun past time.

    Thank you for all your help, and for showing us how nice of a person you are, while holding the highest level of professionalism, respect and kindness to us, less fortunate in our craft and talent...

    With the most admiration for your work, sometimes a just seat and watch your photos jumping out of my 65 inches TV screen, it's like watching National Geographic with a beautiful twist, with an artistic edge, with more feelings.
    Watching you grow as an artist, with amaze and awe has been a great pleasure, as if, when God was giving people talent, He allowed you to get on the line multiple times.
    Your criativity alone it's a big inspiration to me.

    Thank you and your Company for building my webpage, it's so beautiful and fun to play with it, without you, I'd never have it, and If I ever could be of any assistance on my end, please let me know.
    Thank you so much.

    A new testament. 07/18/2015

    Sainte Philippe.
    I have a friend in higher places.
    I'm going to give him a call, but some times he's so busy performing miracles that it's hard to reach him.
    But here is how I'll start.
    Dear Francisco, Even though the Pope is Argentinian, please don't forget, God is Brazilian.
    (This way I'll put him on the defensive right away).
    Please, hear my prayers, and elevate Sainte Philippe, from France.
    CANONIZE HIM, but keep him on the order of the NIKON Saints.
    not a Capuccino, nor a Franciscan, even if you have to create a new gig in his honor, Phillipian would be nice.

    Thank you for Listening.
    And let me call him now."

    "It took me over 3 years to write this testimonial and i'm glad that i've finally done it. I mean.. Philippe has been an enormous source of inspiration with every creation that he presented over this entire time and i would just like to say that he's the best i've met around Flickr (and i've met a lot of great artists) and also that i'd like to thank him for this opportunity. Your work is great and for many young photographers such as myself .. each new image is a lesson to be learned.

    Keep bringing wonderful images and i'll make sure to see and fave each one of them :)

    With friendship..

    "Philippe est l'un des photographes les plus remarquable que j'ai eu la chance de voir sur Flick'r. Chacune de ses photos est une petite oeuvre d'art. On sent le soucis du détail qu'il met pour que le sujet, le cadrage, les couleurs et l'éclairage soient en harmonie parfaite. Il s'en dégage une ambiance unique à chaque oeuvre.

    Continue de nous émerveiller avec tes créations, c'est très inspirant."

Ahead of the Trend. Exciting. I could go on and on. If you haven't made Philippe a contact you are missing the boat. His work is all the above and more.

    He has been a contact of mine for quite a while and I've seen his work continue to improve as the years have passed. I look forward to seeing what artistic piece he has diligently created for us to see.

    "I've followed Philippe's photostream for a few months now, and he never ceases to amaze me with the creativity and diversity of his work. His treatment of color is the best I have seen on Flickr, but it is how he picks his objects, separates them from the environment or how he finds relationships between the objects is what is truly stunning. You may also notice that his presents it in variety of styles or treatments, but the quality is superb regardless.

    His world is a world of beauty, and you learn to see your own world in a different way through Philippe's art. His is for sure one of the greatest assets when you consider overall value of Flickr, and I am glad he continues to share his work with all of us."

    From gorgeous lansdcapes, original macros, to creative abstracts, Philippe has the ability to turn each of this photographs into work of art. He masterfully controls the light, the colors. Sometimes I even suspect him of controlling the natural elements, such as the sky!

    "In the flickr universe, there are a few people that stand out from the crowd, some really talented artists who can really make you say "whow!" with their work. Philippe, is one of those few. What makes him very special, is his consistent quality on his works. In his photostream, there is no average quality picture. We all have our good photographic times occasionally, some frequently, but with Philippe, this seems to be the only case. Excellent work, always, no compromise, no exceptions!

    He was one of the first photographers I met in Flickr, his work has inspired me for some good months and I know he will continue to do so in the future. Thank you Philippe for all those lovely daily surprises and your -ever!- kind comments on mine and other peoples' works."

    "For my two years on Flickr I found that there are many wonderful and talented photographers... and for me....I have found that there are only a few like yourself, that consistently create profoundly beautiful images. Images that inspire, speak and leave me feeling awestruck and whose subject matter is as varied as the astounding colors found in each one. Philippe, your eye for color, light and composition is impeccable. You are a master of the art of photography.
    Thank you for sharing and inspiring."

    "I was lucky enough to find one of Philippe's very fine images in my first days on Flickr, and that was one of my earliest faves. This led me to view his stream which had me speechless it is so beautiful. A photostream of amazing beauty, colour, detail, and for me, very great inspiration.

    Whenever I have moments where I feel uninspired for photo subjects, Philippe's works always make me feel inpspiration again. He has a great photographer's eye - sees great beauty in the ordinary, brings superb detail to a photo which others may not even see to take. As well as this, there is a great positivity to his images, the colours are great and so are the compositions.

    On top of all of this, he is a great Flickr friend and very supportive and encouraging, I am pleased to be his friend :)

    Thank you Philippe! Keep smiling and doing your great work :)"

    "Philippe, c'est assez compliqué de le résuméen quelques phrases, d'autant plus que sa gallerie parle d'elle même. En quelques mots cela pourrait etre: Mr Rubik Cube.
    Non seulement pour le format pratiquement constant qui indique une signature, mais egalement pour ce qu'un simple jeu peut représenter.
    Variations, Regles, Positions, References, Contrastes couleurs...
    L'autre impression qui peut ressortir c'est également qualité, systematique, beauté.
    Une des galleries importantes de flickr en ce qui concerne la France.

    "Philippe, what has yet to be said of this great artist? Many speak of his artistic ability and engaging captures. There is much to be said of his composition and manipulation of the camera. In all, his technique and gifted eye have brought joys to each of us as we view his works eagerly, on a daily basis.

    The details are what draw my eye to Philippe’s works, though. The gentle caress of light as it meanders through a grass laden field… the cast of a shadow giving depth and warmth to an evening’s glow. I notice the trickling changes in the tones of a shade as they emerge from a flushed hue to a crimson flame of light, and I watch in wonder as an intriguing image emanates forth from a simple composition into a rhapsody of life.

    In Philippe’s works I can hear the echoes of ages past and stories being told. A timeworn gate wags on about those who have entered and left again, its old and rusty hinges gazing upon the fresh and new blossoms pendulant above it. A giant’s foot sits still and quiet, frozen in time by a mossy carpet – poised as if ready to set out on an adventure at any given moment. A delicate blossom reaches forth its tremulous petals into the light, the never-ending story of new beginnings told once more.

    I see all of this in Philippe’s images, and they speak to me, as I am sure they do to others. Your works are grand - - persist."

    Malgré une technique parfaitement maîtrisée, Philippe prend soin de préciser dans sa présentation qu'il est doté, avant-même de fouiller parmi les boitiers et les objectifs de son fourre-tout, de "two eyes".....
