  • “Comment parler de Gregory et de ses workshops ?Déjà pour les dames, avec sa casquette et ses lunettes de soleil il ressemble à Bradley Cooper dans American Sniper. Bon, ça s’est fait, mais comme elles vont en parler tout le voyage, messieurs, faut être prévenus…
    En plus d’être un très bon photographe, c’est un vrai baroudeur humaniste qui connait par cœur les endroits où il va vous amener et ça se ressent d’un bout à l’autre du séjour.
    Sinon pour ce qui est du workshop lui-même, comment dire…Je rêvais d’aller en Inde, ça faisait longtemps, mais après avoir vécu plusieurs galères à l’étranger, je ne voulais plus voyager seul. En fait sans Grégory, je n’y serais vraisemblablement jamais allé, or ce workshop organisé exclusivement par un photographe, pour des photographes, en ce sens a été quasiment parfait. Mini van privatisé, interprète accompagnateur dévoué, lieux magiques, accueil privilégié au contact de la vraie vie de la population, voir sur leur lieu de travail, dans des endroits où vous ne verrez pas un touriste. Le tout extrêmement propice au but du voyage, à savoir : la photo de rue et de reportage axé ‘Humain’.
    C’est bien simple l’album du voyage je l’ai intitulé : India Ligth and Magic.
    Ce voyage je te le dois Greg. J’attends le prochain…

  • “L’Inde a toujours été un rêve pour moi, baroudeuse du monde. Greg l’a réalisé. Un petit groupe de passionnés de la photo, un prof et guide à la hauteur. Greg connaît ce pays dans tous les détails et a su partager sa passion pour ce pays majestueux. Le choix des objets qui devaient défiler devant nos objectifs étaient autant de taille que d’une beauté exceptionnelle. Les conseils de Greg étaient des plus précieux pour nos passionnés de la photo. Il a su transmettre son savoir-faire avec le naturel et la bonne humeur qui lui appartiennent. Je garde un excellent souvenir de ce Workshop et mets en œuvre tous les conseils et astuces transmis durant ce séjour. Un grand merci à toi Greg de m’avoir permis de réaliser mon rêve, de participer à ce magnifique voyage.”
