I have extensive experience in image research, which is intimately related to my career as a professional photographer working in the industry since 2003. In Paris, I worked with a notable list of diverse clients including Elite, Ford, Viva, Women, and Karin & Silent model agencies. During my time living in China I worked for prestigious publications such as Vogue China, L’Officiel, Madame Figaro, Milk Magazine, Ilook magazine, Modern Weekly and many more. I also cooperated on various advertisement campaigns for Hilton Hotels, Martell Cognac, and Elite World and China model competitions. As a result, I have extensive knowledge and confidence in navigating the ins-and-outs of the photographic medium and industry. My expertise in the photography industry extends beyond my work as a professional photographer. In 2012, following my relocation to Bangkok, I co-founded an online photography and lifestyle magazine called This project has allowed me to expand my skills in coordinating photo-shoots, conducting image research, developing visual identities, as well as approaching ideas using diverse and innovative editorial angles both in lifestyle and fashion. In addition, I co-founded and curated an online contemporary gallery named Weissprint (, providing me with new skills in managing photographers and selling their work. It should also be noted that I have lived in the Asia-Pacific region for more than 15 years in culturally vibrant cities including Hanoi, Shanghai, Beijing, Sydney, and Bangkok. These precious years have provided me with very intimate insights into the region and its people, allowing me to develop nuanced communication skills and a taste for exploration.
