Hi everyone,

No news from me for a while... It has been a strange time for me lately.
Anyway, it is time to unveil the last art project I've been working on. It was completed throughout two years and has a more personal and philosophical meaning, you can learn more by visiting the gallery on my website to the link below.
You also have a small video teaser :)

To read the idea behind this project and see the whole photo gallery:

Hello everyone,

I am currently thinking about going some months abroad to take a break and meet new people, cultures and see new things and places. I'd like to use this opportunity to both cover interesting things through a photo book and photojournalism / video (such as local country workers, interesting cultures or habits, environmental or cultural issues etc), and also to do some work (farm/agricultural work, volunteering, photography... very "simple" things or work linked to photography / art) to cover (or in exchange of) food and accomodation expenses. Gorgeous landscapes and hiking trails are an asset :)

The places I am interested in at the moment are Iceland, Canada, New Zealand and Nepal. But I am open to any suggestion :) (I speak english and french)

Did you have any experience like this you can speak about, or do you have other suggestions that could be interesting for what I'm looking for? Please share any thought / recommandations / adresses you might have :) I will probably not leave before March for personal reasons and to have time to plan this well.

The main purpose is really to take a break from Eastern culture and our interpretation of work and life in general, either through vast natural spaces or new cultures. Getting lost.

Thank you for your advices and good wishes to everyone for the end of the year :)

Wow guys I just realized my profile reached 1M pageviews !!! Never thought this would happen when I joined this great website in awe of incredible artists 8 years ago. I'm so proud ^_^  I've always been there throughout my artistic journey and wouldn't be where I am now without you guys. Thanks to all of you for following my work, new things are always in preparation ;)

Hi guys, I need your opinion:

I created a twitter account a while ago (twitter.com/MD_Arts) but I'm not using it at all; would you be interested -or do you think this will be useful to me- if I post regular updates about series, shootings, BTS and pictures here (rather than in facebook for instance) ?

I'm the most active here, on 500px and FB but I'm looking for other platforms to share my art ; if you have any idea and suggestions feel free :) (I don't have instagram because I can't use it from a computer and I'm not working on mobile yet).

Great week-end everyone and thanks for reading ;)

I'll be on a trip in Norway to visit a friend near the Lofoten Islands, and I'll also be in Oslo during 2 days. Is anybody there who'd like to say hi ? :) (or a model who'd like to have a shoot ?)
Please tell me, I'd love to meet Deviants IRL ;)

Hi everyone,

Thank you very much for all your votes, we've reached 100!
Unfortunately, to be eligible for this competition, I also need 100 comments and yet I only have about 40... I know this kind of sucks, but if you could write a little comment this would really help me and I'd be very grateful :aww:

Hi everyone,

I recently finished a behind the scenes video from a fantasy shooting I made for a great artist and friend of mine. You can see all the work that can be necessary for a single photo !
Watch the video:


I also put online a section dedicated to one of my latest series on my website : www.m-d-art.com/coeurs_ames.ht…
Thanks to :iconphydeau: for the corrections on the english translation :)

More pictures of this series are to come ;)

Have a great week-end eveyone!

Less than 10 days left to support my photo project, and we have less than 50 % funded !
Thanks for your help, feel free to share it around you :)

(for english watchers, this is a crowdfunding to help me for the expenses of a big photo project involving a lot of people and props. If you are curious, the google translator is pretty accurate. The print counterparts are available for people outside France but with an increase in shipping costs.)

------------------------

Et voici le gros projet photo de cet été ! Compte tenu de l'envergure que je voudrais lui conférer, j'ai mis en place un système de financement participatif qui, s'il atteint le budget escompté, permettra de participer dans une certaine mesure au financement du matériel nécessaire et aux frais des différents collaborateurs. Diverses contreparties (tirages photos, séances photos, workshop, réservation d'impressions limitées...) seront offertes selon les soutiens apportés.

fr.ulule.com/crepuscule-reve/

Je vous laisse découvrir le projet plus en détail sur la page Ulule qui lui est associée (ci-dessus). N'hésitez pas à y apporter votre contribution ou à le partager autour de vous :) Chaque soutien compte et prouve que les univers que je crée continuent à vous faire rêver, ce qui en soi est déjà pour moi une récompense.

Merci et bon week-end à tous !

Hi everyone,

I've recently created a Patreon profile if you'd like to be part of my artistic journey and help me in my photography projects:

www.patreon.com/MDArt

There are HQ wallpapers, exclusive access to new pictures, step by step, exclusive stock and more for you!

I have several big projects already in post-production and others coming up - some requiring lots of artists, special places and probably new gear for video - so I will welcome every little support :)



I also wanted to thank everyone here, thanks to people following me from the beginning with fire juggling stuff and thanks to people who just discovered my work ! I think I wouldn't have gone so far in photography and opened my mind to arts without Deviant Art's support and inspiration.

I barely take time to say thank you so I wanted to do it now :)

THANK YOU EVERYONE !!!

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a native English speaker who can help me and correct the translations I made of the texts describing the concepts of 2 of my current photographic series. It's not very long but I'd like the translations to be of a good level :)

Thanks in advance, and HAPPY 2015 TO ALL !!!

[EDIT] wow thanks a lot for all your help :) I'll send the texts to some of you :aww:
