I updated my camera to a Canon 60D in summer 2011, and currently own and mostly use a 50 mm f/1.8, 28 mm f/2.8, a fisheye and a 200 mm lens.

"Tossed between the sky and sea

and it seems - we'll sail

until we find the harbor lights

Oh, life is but a dream of blue in green

although it seems - the end draws nearer with each passing day

we'll always sail - this way

until we find our home"

~Cassandra Wilson

flickr-favorites to me have always been more an appreciation of a photographer's work, rather than a collection of my favorite photos on flickr.

I've been meaning to write a testimonial for Yves for awhile now and after much thought and practice, I'm finally ready to say all that I wanted to say about this amazingly talented man. Yves heart and sensitivity to humanity can be seen through his photos and the amazing slide show that he did for LOVE_LensOfVisionExpression. The act of creating art goes beyond self expression, Yves obviously is aware of this and used his creativity to create an awareness about the injustice of our world. Thank you Yves for all that you do and for constantly challenging your fans to see the world through the eyes of others less fortunate than us. Sincerely, Samantha, Founder of LensOfVisionExpression

Yves is a man with many artistic talents. As a photographer, he is able to see/bring out the beauty in the simplest of things. Then adding to aesthetics, he artfully creates great atmosphere with his processes which further gives emotional quality to his images. And that sets him apart from many other photographers. Look at his images of a simple branch or a twig, and you'll know what I mean. Apart from being an excellent photographer, he is also a very gifted musician/composer - check out his ipernity/myspace pages. As a person, Yves is honest, sincere, kind and generous. And I consider myself very lucky to call him friend, and to get the gift of a video slideshow of my work put together by him - one can fully witness his acute sensitivity for music & imagery on display in the way he assembled it, not forgetting his dedication, pride and professionalism in the way he does his work. Thank you for everything Yves... and i wish you the absolute best for your future projects for you so deserve it! :)

His stream is full of hidden treasures! I find myself browsing his older work quite often and always finding something new that I just LOVE. I love how he sees the world and how he delivers it to us so poetically. Thank you for always moving me and inspiring me! xoxo

I'm following Yives' photostream for some months now and almost every day he fascinates me with a new, creative picture! His post-processing style of adding textures and remixing the colors is very unique and makes each picture even more expressive. I am especially enjoying his "30 secrets" set which often makes me not only think about the topic but also about myself and my realtion to it. Thank you very much, Yives!

You just feel along with all of his photographs. He is friendly too. ;) I definitely learn from his work as I develop my own sense of photography through my perspective and look onto the world. His photography is always very amazing. Thanks, Yves for sharing with all of us. I will continue to look forward to your work.

Deine Photos sind echt der Hammer! Ich mag vorallem die "unsaubere" Texturierung. Die tiefen der Finsternis erhellt mit Lichterspitzen besonderer Art. Ich wünschte, ich könnte bei dir in die Lehre gehen! beste Grüße von Sulamith aus Berlin

This guy is so talented! His photos have a rich modern look. But photography isn't his only talent, there is music too. You only have to check out his myspace to see how talented his work is. Always leaving helpful and constructive feedback. Yves is a contact to have!

yives paints with the camera and captures light and vibrance in every 'brush stroke.' His hallmark is color, natural beauty and emotion strong within each shared image. I find myself transported to childhood daydreams while staring at the trippy, vast skies of his mind's eye. :-)

Your work is so subtle, full of beautiful details. Every image shines for it alone, each shoot makes me feel the moment in which it was created. I am a fan of your photographic work."
