I had a gut feeling that I needed to get into my car right when I finished work recently and drive 500km to the east coast to capture sunrise at a place I've never been to. I did not hesitate and I'm so happy that I went on that trip. The beauty of the sunrise was breathtaking! Music by Kai Engel
Back to early 2015. After a few trip in Iceland at different time of the year , we wanted ,Max and Me , experiencing the deep Icelandic winter. We really got what we were looking for :) : Short daylight, snow storms ,icy road, freezing wind… and probably the most amazing light for photography. Two weeks previous departure , i bought my first drone a phantom 2 equipped with a gopro 4. I decided to do my training in Iceland .Flying in such hard condition was really challenging . This is what i captured. Due to severe storm ,we were stuck in the south of iceland . Finally , we could have visit all iceland in a short time , but despite of that , we mostly staked around Fjalsarlon and that was our luck for our trip . That was amazing to enjoy all the frozen icebergs … and we were the only ones to do so. Note that , the 2015 winter was really cold and the ice on the lagoon was hard enough to walk in. That was really a special moment .
Like many people, I dreamt about splendors far away from home. I was drawn to adventures in foreign places where everything would be unknown and exciting. I was overlooking my own country and what treasures it had to offer…

To create Canada: Coast to Coast, I embarked on a four months journey over the span of two years.
I saw massive mountain ranges and spectacular waterfalls, turquoise lakes and rivers fed by glaciers, small fishing villages and pulsating cities, as well as dramatic skies over World Heritage Sites and untouched coastlines.
I invite you along to discover the immensity and diversity of my homeland, the world’s second-largest country.
Welcome to a land of contrast and calm grandeur.
