WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO PICK UP A CAMERA?
As illustrator I need time to draw models or things at any place, so I often prefer to take photos and then draw everything calmly in my studio.
WHAT PARTICULAR CHALLENGES DO YOU FACE WITH EROTIC PHOTOGRAPHY AS OPPOSED TO OTHER GENRES?
No particular challenges, erotism comes natural when models are free to enjoy situations. A good erotic photographer should be nothing more than a clever spectator. When I decide to shoot that's what I mostly care. Besides, my girlfriend is an excellent voluntary guinea pig for all bizarre ideas lol.
DO YOU PREFER TO SHOOT WITH FILM OR DIGITAL?
Digital is comfier, film always has a unique charm.
HOW DID YOU GET INTERESTED IN ART/COMICS?
I'm simply interested in anything able to shock me and change my life. Some comics and some artists did it when I was an innocent nerd teenager.
HOW DID YOU BECOME INTERESTED IN FETISH/BDSM?
That comes from childhood, and I was probably influenced by lots of erotic comics and movies that stimulated my fantasy. I've always been curious about mind behavior, my job also helped.
DO YOU ENJOY FETISHISM/BDSM PLAY IN YOUR PERSONAL LIFE, AND IF SO WHAT ARE YOU INTO?
I proudly do. I'm a total switch, I like to experiment with my partner any kind of game.
WHAT DO YOU HAVE PLANNED FOR THE FUTURE?
I'm currently working on my latest erotic graphic novel "Mona Agent X", which will be coming out in France by this year (and I hope soon in States as well!). Here is a link for it: http://monaagentx.blogspot.com
DO YOU THINK PINUP AND FETISH ARE BECOMING PART OF THE MAINSTREAM CULTURE?
Maybe, who knows? Everything is cyclical.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
Not for now.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
Heavy metal was my first love. Now I like anything expressive, not current pop.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
Collect statues and dolls of comics/anime characters.
