There is a few cities in my country with long a straight avenue. The lines from the city and the car lights create patterns, long exposure and a cool spot for the set-up. Shot at Numa-Droz Avenue, La Chaux-De-Fonds, Suisse
A place where political people take decisions. It’s the heart of our political system. A very strict and symmetric picture, like the subject. The Swiss Parliament building. Shot in Bern, Switzerland.
Two years after my first experience (see Racing with the Sun) at the “Patrouille des Glaciers“, I went to see the race again. Leaving Lausanne during the night, I went to Arolla them Verbier. A white night to follow the race. Great times. This time the race was not stopped and I could shoot the climbing of the top of the Col de Riedmatten (2919 m) with a long exposure setting.
I prefer to spend my time in beautiful landscapes instead of a cave. During my work, I have to spend one day in a tunnel. I took the opportunity to bring my gears with me and try to shoot something. Hopefully, there was this train bringing some lights into the darkness. Shoot in tunnel of Simplon, Valais, Switzerland.
During the end of this year, the city of Lausanne set up a light festival. This piece of art is called “Flux Cocoon”, it is based on LED wrapped around the Grand Pont. Around the city you can enjoy ten installations and discover the city with another point of view. Shot in Place de l’Europe, Lausanne, Switzerland.
Another experiment in long exposure night shot with a friend of mine. Unfortunately it was not a starry night. Nevertheless, this standing structure in the border of the lake catch our attention. Shot in the Parc du Sélaz, St-Prex, Switzerland.
There is always a special atmosphere during the night. After a few beers, a friend of mine and I went this saturday night in St-Sulpice, Vaud, Switzerland. We try to catch this unique ambiance. Comparing to my last picture, it was more difficult to catch the stars, to much light from the other side of lake. It was a good experience anyway.
Last saturday, my father and I woke at 2 in the morning in Arolla to climb up the Col de Riedmatten (2919 m) in Valais, Switzerland. My goal was to capture this unique atmosphere. The “Patrouille des Glaciers“, a famous race across the Alps toke place during this night. The light path is made by the head lamps of the racers.
This picture is my tribute to the work of Hilla and Bernd Becher. Shot during a cold (-3 °C !) night in Lausanne, Switzerland.
Same place than the previous post, but at night, I definitely like this place. We climbed up the mountain at the end of day to enjoy a cold sunset and share bottle of white wine. Shot from the top of Dent de Vaulion (1482m), Vaud, Switzerland.
Cheillon Glacier and the Mont-Blanc de Cheillon shot from the Cabane des Dix (2928m) in Valais, Switzerland. This was a almost full moon during this night, I try to catch this unique atmosphere with this shot.

The Saint-Jean Cathedral and Notre Dame de Fouvrière close to the Bonaparte bridge in Lyon, France. This was a cold night in the beginning of this winter in this city full of lights.
It was 6h30 in a cold morning of autumn. I was with my uncle in the forest, hoping to see and take pictures of wild animals. Nothing happens except this great sunrise. Shot in a forest near Mauraz, Switzerland.
We must celebrate, it’s my 100th post !
I decide to start a new photographic experience. With the kind help of Raphaël, we made a long exposure shot with some light paintings and flashes. I like the design of this playground especially at night. Shot in Vallée de la Jeunesse, Lausanne, Switzerland.
I’m happy with the result. Thank you all for your comments, e-mails and support since the beginning of this photoblog. I’m looking forward for the 1000th post !
Last friday night with my pal Cédric Martin we decided to make a night session on the vert of Vidy, Lausanne, Switzerland. Happy with the result we celebrated until 2 AM…
Last subway after a few beers in town with my pals, I was listening to this incredible song called “Slow Show” by “The National” on my way back home. An idea pop out of my mind and I decide to shot. Lausanne, Switzerland.
It’s was a warm evening, alone at home. Watching the view from my place, just thinking and dreaming then I decide to take picture from my balcony. Tripod, a beer and patience.
This is my first experiment with a new technic called HDTR, for “High Dynamic Time Range”. The goal is to show the flow of the time in one frame. In the left side of the picture the time of shooting was 17h30, in the right side, 18h30. I shot this picture from a place called Le Signal in Lausanne, Switzerland.
Thanks to Martin Krzywinski for his algorithm on images blending.
On the right side this is the Finnish parliament. I experienced snow falls through powerful light, that’s why the sky is so purple. This is the last shot of my serie about Helsinki.
The main street of Helsinski, Finlandia. A long exposure shot near the road and the tramway. The night fall very early in the northern Europe, it was about 16h30 when I shooted this picture.
This the building of the Finnish parliament. His local name is Eduskuntatalo, it’s located in the city of Helsinski, Finlandia. This night, the building was beautifully lit then I decided to shot it.
A nice place to relax, unfortunately, you can’t see it in the picture but it was full of mosquitos. Shoot in Siem Reap, Cambodgia.
During the electrosanne, I escape from the concert to shot this popular street called the Flon, Lausanne, Switzerland. I work on the colorful lights and use a long exposure to avoid the crowd.
To take this shot my friend Jay and I lost a few pounds in sweat cause the night was so hot. The is the famous Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
