    Hi,

    First, I have to warn you that I will do a lot of mistakes in my posts : I've never been attentive to my English teachers. Fortunately you'll not have to hear my awful FRRRench accent !

    Is that enough for a presentation ?.. Maybe not...
    I'm a comic artist, illustrator, teacher and photographer... A lot of jobs, but when someone suggest me something funny I have to try !!
    I live in a small town in France, at the door of the Alps, and I practice photography since seven years when I bought my first DSLR. I passed a few years to accumulate pro gear, lenses, flashs, etc... for fun and for my assignments.
    Now I'm trying to sell a lot of that gear because I'm convinced that compact photography is the way to be an efficient photographer in most cases.

    I wonder if I will be very active on this forum, but I'll try to post and comment.
    You can see my drawings here : www.batist.fr ,and some of my pictures there : www.photo.batist.fr . I'm also on flickr : https://www.flickr.com/photos/pbatist/

    Have a nice day !

    Welcome. As is often said, your English is far better than my French, with apologies to my french teachers.

    That's right, even if wrote like that it means more "I love your pictures" than "I like your pictures". But I understood that it's a compliment ! Thank you !
