Loïc started as a car photographer at age 16, roaming through the streets of Monaco. Two years later, he got his first job as a commercial automotive photographer for Gemballa GmbH (Porsche tuner).
Throughout the years, he develops his personal style, between pixel perfect commercial image and more spontaneous visual.
True automotive enthusiast, he shoots a Peugeot 205 GTI with the same fervor as with a Ferrari 250.
His collaborations with auction houses like Artcurial or RM Sotheby’s has allowed him to approach some of the most incredible vehicle on the planet :
Why cars ?
How I got addicted is, I think, the most common story among car enthusiasts. As a kid, I received this very special present: my first 1/18 Bburago diecast. For many it was the Ferrari F40, for me it was the Bugatti EB110 (which gave me my lifelong love for this quad-turbo monster). For the past 20 years, its main purpose has seemed to be collecting all the dust it can, and yet, I cannot imagine getting rid of it.
How did it all begin ?
I started shooting at around 16 in the streets of Monaco, this magical place where every car you see in magazines drives casually around Casino Square. I remember going there with my point and shoot – for no more than two weeks, before I started to borrow (to appropriate might be more accurate) my mom’s Nikon D70 DSLR. From there, through forums and curiosity, I learned how to make the best of it.
Latest adventure ?
We shipped our Volkswagen T3 by container to the United States. The result : a 2 months, coast to coast road trip (april to june 2019) through some of the most incredible landscape on the planet, discovering a wild America and experiencing the #vanlife.
