After so many days non stop shooting, I need a little rest for a few hours, I’ll spend this time to post here for you some images of my latest exhibition.

As usual it was a photo and video exhibition, the video being superbly done by Romain.
The video can be watched there, as well as more infos ont he exhibition (sorry for all texts being in French!)


The work has been done in three different directions:
- At our offset printer’s workshop, colors are his job!
- At Château Angelus (one of the top 3 of Grands Crus Saint-Emilion)
- Personal work and researches


We had the chance to have some good partners… Without them: No exhibition!
Many thanks to Aston Martin, Relais & Châteaux Saint-James Bouliac, Pentax Ricoh and Les Ortigues

The full set of images shown in the exhibition can be seen there

I do hope that you will enjoy…

We’ll start with some images shot backstage while shooting and some researches before the real shootings…

L'accrochage (hanging) suite










This is the château Angélus logo.
Usually it is gold and "flat" we asked the permission (and got it) to treat it our way and in red…

Le vernissage (opening cocktail)

More than 200 people attended to the opening, viewing images while tasting Château Angelus or a flûte of champagne, enjoying the Michelin's star chef Nicolas Magie's (a name that cannot be invented!) petits fours, for him, red color was "de rigueur"…



Your servant :)

Abdou! A real treat to have him with us! He's the machinist of the printing machine we used for the shooting​

well, your website information and pictures there are really exquisite appetizers for the exhibition ...
But, I'm really sorry, the wine is too expensive for me ... :)))

Ah! LoL!
Thanks to our partners, during the opening, drinks and food (appetisers) are free! Including Champagne…
Isn't it cool?

Gorgeous images and they look so well at home in this place, and what better to explain great wine than the color red. Images are spectacular. Congratulations! :) Maggie
