Hi, my name is Christophe (Chris) and I am a passionate, self taught photographer. I started as a teenager with a lovely Minolta XG-2 and a nice 50mm 1.7 (still own it) but I stopped for many years at the beginning of digital area. Back to business since a couple of years now, I really enjoy taking all kinds of photographs with some preference for landscapes and portraits. I always try to improve, so every feedback is highly appreciated. I think that you can never stop learning in photography, so don’t be afraid to tell me if you think I have done something wrong or if I could improve by doing different. I am always happy to give feedback, so I don’t mind being asked.
I mainly shoot with a Canon 5D3 and 5D2 with many lovely lenses but I owned some other Canon cameras and many lenses, so feel free to contact me if you need some feedback or advice. I do also own a Fuji X100.
I speak and understand a couple of languages, so feel free to communicate in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Dutch and Luxembourgish.

I joined FLICKR in October last year but I only started using it since March 2011. I made many mistakes at the beginning, like putting my pictures in tons of groups and losing all my time awarding ... Believe me, it's not worth it. Use this time to browse through FLICKR and comment pictures you like.
I also prefer getting a simple "nice" than having my comments polluted by 100 awards.

I do have some habits on FICKR, good or bad ...
I post one picture maximum per day (expetion will be when I start uploading model shootings). So if I have a series of ten pictures to upload it takes 10 days ...
I never comment in a negative way (only point out what i like). If someone wants a serious opinion (maybe negative), just sent me a private message.
I don't put my pictures in groups anymore, no need to send me invites,

I know that I own some nice gear, but I honestly believe it's the photographer and not the gear which make great pictures. Good gear only makes things easier.

Last but not least, I want to thank all of you (over 500.000 of views) for taking time to look at my pictures.

Remember: All your comments are welcome.

See you on FLICKR,

Christophe
