Frédéric was born in Versailles, France and currently lives in Brooklyn, New York.
He launched his career in 2001, after working with fashion photographer Nathaniel Goldberg. Early on Frédéric focused mainly on travel photography, but since, he has broadened his scope of work to include fashion and portraiture. Frédéric’s evocative color and black and white images have been featured in numerous magazines and ad campaigns around the world such as: Vanity Fair US, The New York Times magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue (Japanese, German, Spanish, Indian), The New Yorker, Louis Vuitton, Condé Nast Traveler, GQ (US, Japan), Anthropologie, Free People, and W hotels, among others. Frédéric has also teamed-up with renowned International advertising agencies such as MC Saatchi, Ogilvy & Mather, and McGarry Bowen on award-winning advertising campaigns.
Frédéric’s interest in photography was at first an excuse to travel, but soon grew into an obsessive passion. He has been documenting the world for the last twelve years—traveling through more than 80 countries—since his first picked up a camera. Although Frédéric is best known for his images of South, South East, and Central Asia, he is also recognized worldwide for his travel and portraiture work.
