Personal Quote: I do prefer having fun with the camera than having style.
  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt? 8 years in October.

  2. What does your username mean? My initials, as pronounced in English, if you read it as a Frenchman (was that clear?)

  3. Describe yourself in three words. Passionate. Busy. Fast.

  4. Are you left or right handed? Left.

  5. What was your first deviation? Wrapped by djailledie A fun experience with my son and a wide angle lens. 

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create? Photography

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? Drawing - which I have always done without mastering.

  8. What was your first favourite? I don't remember, but it was surely a deviation by CrinaPrida who I knew from a previous photo site and suggested me to join. 

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? Photography.

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? There is no all-time favorite. What was my favorite 8 years ago is different from my favorite today and will evolve in the future. 

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? There is a bunch of old French street photographers like me (they know who they are) with whom I wouldn't mind take a photo walk. A few others, whether they are in Italy, UK, USA, UAE, Turkey, Germany or elsewhere... In fact, some of these talented artists that I watch here in dA (and I don't watch that many).

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? I guess that belonging to this community stimulates my photography, and provides me a balance in life. 

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art? A lightweight camera, that is with me all the time. 

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? Streets of large cities. 

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? My first visits to the site were enlightening, I discovered very creative photography. Again, if I was looking back at these photos today, I am sure that my taste would have evolved...
