Biography

Before becoming a photographer, Gregory was a dancer. He performed with the Grand Théâtre de Genève for twenty years. During that time, he got the chance to travel the world and work with great choreographers and many inspiring artists.

Passionate about photography since his childhood, it is no surprise that he specialised in dance photography. He loves capturing dance with all it can express: Power, sensuality, beauty, freedom, fragility, mysticism and magic.
