C’est Moi!

C'est Moi... fotofreq!!

Hi and welcome.  I suppose I’m supposed to tell you a little about myself, so here goes.  My name is Jacques, and I’ve been a photography addict for… a long time.  It’s been about an hour since I shot my last photograph, or has it been less?  I suppose you could call it my passion, and I’m not going to apologize for it.  As far as what I like to photograph, I suppose it’s a little bit of this and a little bit of that.  Over the last two years, I’ve spent my time photographing urban environments, particularly those that have been abandoned or forgotten (aka Urban Exploration – or URBEX).  I dable as well in travel, portrait and landscape work.  I’m a huge proponent of High Dynamic Range photography, as I’ve found it helps me to capture and create my visions as I “see” them.  I am constantly seeking out new ways to express my vision, whether through the use of new photographic techniques, software or other means.  I hope you enjoy what you see here on my blog, and I look forward to engaging with you here, on Twitter, or on my flickr stream.

Wayne Frost - Your blog header image is an outstanding example of the power of HDR to convey images.

Jacques - Thank you, Wayne. That shot is from one of my favorite URBEX sites, Beelitz-Heilstätten, Germany, and old Tuberculosis sanatorium.

Gordon Burns - Jacques – I loved looking through your HDR photography. Your work is exceptional and an inspiration. Relatively new to HDR photography myself, I really appreciate great work when I see it. I have done a fair bit of large format printing of HDR URBEX photography (for someone in this field you probably know, check it out here: http://www.skylightpublishing.com/artist-gibb-1.htm), and if you ever want any fine quality large format printing done yourself , PLEASE let me know. I would love to print your work for you. Would you consider taking me around some of the abandoned locations you use?

Wayne Frost - Great choice on the new blog header image, Jacques. I’m looking forward to more of your images of locales in the U.S.

Andrew Didham - I am commenting from London. I think the images you have shown are really stunning. I like the high dynamic range approach you adopt to convey the beauty of what can be day to day images.
