Founder of China Photo Workshops
Thierry is China’s premier landscape photographer. He was born and raised in France. His career and reputation have surged in the last 5 years, with his work featured in National Geographic, The Telegraph, Wired, and other high-profile publications. In 2015 and 2016, Thierry earned a nomination for China’s Landscape Photographer of the Year.
National Geographic’s ‘Photo of the Day’ Column often places him among the highest rated photographers, and he has won many international awards from the EPSON International Pano Awards, One Eyeland, International Landscape Photographer of the Year, etc … His best photos sell for upwards of 15,000 to 22,000 USD in limited edition of 8 photographs and enquiries are constant.
Thierry has not always been a photographer though. In 2001, he began his professional life with an MBA in finance and became a CFO at an international fashion company in New York. In 2007, he realized that number crunching did not satisfy his passion for natural beauty. With a devotion and passion for nature and people, he decided to change his career to something more artistic that could (and did) set him free.
Without any formal training, Thierry dedicated his days to teaching himself photography. His first focus was high fashion photography, which drew the attention of high-profile models and celebrities. In 2011, he began exploring more of China (which had been his home since 2006) and photographing its stunning landscapes.
The key to Thierry’s success doesn’t come from just technical know-how, however. Every time he travels, Thierry does much more than just photography. He connects with people, cultures, and the landscapes themselves. Travel with him, and your photos will come alive through these same connections.
