A wedding on ClubMed II.

Message : Bonjour Christian, J’ai regardé ton album des croisières et c'est bien toi! Comment vas-tu? Depuis le temps. MERCI encore pour ces belles photos en robe de mariée que tu m'avais faite sur le pont pendant la croisière du Club Med II en 1992 pendant la traversée Le Havre-Noumea!!! J’ai vu que tu fais une belle carrière à Paris. De mon côté j'habite en Italie depuis 17 ans et je travaille pour une ONG italienne qui s'appelle l'Institut International de Droit Humanitaire www.iihl.org et c’est moi la photographe de l'Institut! J'adore la photographie. J'adore le travail on rencontre des personnes du monde entier, de l'Afghanistan, Mongolie, Lesotho, etc...Cela me ferait plaisir d'avoir de tes nouvelles. Bises, Patricia

Underwater Casino.

Angel Swanson goes sky diving.

Angel Swanson, near Vancouver. In 2014 she sent me a message on FaceBook to thank me for these unforgettable memories.

"Nous les photographes jouons avec des choses qui disparaissent et, quand elles ont disparu, il est impossible de les faire revivre."
(Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again.)
Henri Cartier Bresson

Angel Swanson Vanrooyen: Great memories you made for me and a million others! I miss all the fun.
I had already had plenty of skydiving experience during my military service, so for me this was as easy as falling off a plane. See page 12.

Of course I had to climb the rock, you idiot. Photos by David Turner.

Laura Lang

LAURA LANG in 2015: "I sent the sepia hammock shot to my Mum and she just loved it. I also sent the ones with Joe to him and I'm sure he'll love them too. Thanks again, Christian! If you run into anymore in your archives as you go along, please feel free to forward them! :o) All the best."

Rosaline, a fantastic model. Never a single complaint.

Sharon Stanley Goldberg

At the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco with model Sharon Stanley. Assistants: Nick Lellelyn and John Cable.

Sharon Stanley: "Christian, you make everyone so beautiful with the 'gift' of your eye in the camera :)".

Tracey in Yaté in New-Caledonia

President Jimmy Carter and his wife in Cozumel Mexico

L’hôtel Sol Caribe Cozumel était à l’époque le plus bel hôtel que je n’avais jamais vu. Il y avait une immense piscine, avec une immense cascade et un bar au milieu où l’on pouvait savourer un cocktail assis dans l’eau. Il y avait aussi une ruine Maya au milieu du lobby. Les non-résidents, comme les gens des bateaux de croisières (moi), y étaient les biens venus.
J'y ai rencontré Jimmy Carter, en vacances avec sa femme Rosalynn. Je l'ai pris en photo en dépit des gardes du corps. Il a d’abord cru que j’étais un paparazzi, et m'a complimenté sur mon super pouvoir de persuasion. Je lui ai décrit mon travail de photographe de croisière et il m’a dit que j’avais un job génial de pouvoir voyager partout avec mon appareil photo.

Je ne savais pas, à l’époque, qu’il venait de créer une nouvelle section CIA pour le moyen orient et l’URSS et était à l’origine, entre autres, de l’opération Argo. Il fait ajouter Christian Fournier à sa liste d'agents potentiels. Je deviendrais pour lui photographe "undercover" pour la CIA à Leningrad, URSS, été 1991.


Bucket jacket

Many thanks to Terri Russel for her courage.
Terri is now President Elect MPI British Columbia.


Here are about 620 examples of my photographic event coverage since 1984, that is to say, 30 years. This is without counting those which my clients have requested that I do not show and photos that have been lost.

I know it's enormous.
No, I am not a photographic robot: my mother had me tested

This list begins with the compilations: Fashion & Models, Lingerie, Beauty, Makeup & Hair, Portraits, Events, Objects, Archi & Deco, Industry, Press, Celebrities, etc.

The sensors and web capabilities from 1995 to 2005 were horrible compared to now (2021). 40 KB max by images. My uploads at this time were therefore bad. I replace them little by little. It's long. Thank you for your indulgence.

Conclusion 1: I must not be bad, so that all these people trust me.
I have loyal customers, a sign that they are satisfied with my services. Examples: Tollens, MEDEF, Dior, GMF, Unesco, L'oréal, Anaé, Agefiph, Essilor, Genzyme, Embassy Ireland, The Advertisers Club, Garmin, VW, etc. ...

Conclusion 2: Thanks to all these varied clients (industry, wedding, corporate and personal portraits, press, events, objects, medical, culinary, diving, sports, pageants, etc. ..), I see extraordinary slices of life, confidential or public, trades and fabulous countries. I do feel very privileged. Real life, live. Thank you customers.

In rough estimation, I take 5,000 photos a week. 5,000 x 52 = 260,000 a year. For 35 years = 9,100,000 photos. Well, I would like to reach 10 million anyway!

Conclusion 3: Photography is my language

There is also a search command, not always up to date, but pretty comprehensive on all my reportages.

Due to manipulations between prisedevue.photos, prisedevue.photos and famousphotographer.com, some links may be broken. Sorry. I'm working on it !



Not many photographers have the courage to show their photos on a daily basis. I do it to show that in a wide range of photography, I always take good photos for my clients. Technical perfection and an obvious sensitivity. If you imagine the logistic necessary for these missions (estimates, preparations, equipment, transports in traffic jams, safety, etc.), you can see that I am a photographer who achieves results in all circumstances.
