Despite the troubles faced by the aviation industry since the beginning of the pandemic, Alsim, the global flight simulator manufacturer, based on the outskirts of Nantes, is going from strength to strength. Today, their latest and most ambitious project, the Airliner simulator - a hybrid Airbus/Boeing model, is coming off the production lines in their new manufacturing facility.
These last 12 months, I’ve had the pleasure of working for the computer programming structure within the French bank, Banque Populaire (iBP), creating a set of images for their new dedicated photo library. This project being part of an overhaul of the company's branding and communication strategy.
It was a real privilege being asked back by Alsim to photograph their new AL172 MK II flight simulator and update their stock of library images - commercial department, research & development, maintenance, production units- for their new communication needs.
Over the course of two days I photographed the process of unloading and storing on site at la Rochelle, the giant foundation structures which will soon be installed off the coast of western France, as part of an 80 turbine, wind farm project.
With the new school year just around the corner, delighted to have been part of the team, along with Alcali Design and 7h47 web development, involved in the creation of the new visual communication campaign for the Montessori School in Paris, now known as atMontessori.
Being bilingual and also a part-time teacher myself, I felt particularly well-suited, when commissioned to carry out a 2 day reportage shoot at the international Rennes School of Business, in spring of this year.
