Hello! May I introduce myself

I'm native from Montreal (Canada), i'm living in Repentigny (east of Montreal city)

I made an international career and mainly worked in Africa and Asia. My employers have been the United Nations (UNESCO, FAO, UNDP ...), the Canadian government, consulting agencies, and NGOs. (Profile tab of my site Flickr (flickr.com / gilmarcil), you will find a map of countries I have visited and / or I worked). I am retired since 2002.


What about the photography?

During a trip around the world in 1968-69, I made several pictures. It was for me a chance to make pictures of my travel and souvenir photos. Later, I scanned these images to put on my sites. One of those pictures has been sold to the Museum of Art and History of Judaism in Paris.

I began seriously to photography when I took my retirement. Then it became a passion. Modestly and, I dare say I'm "good photographer". In any case, many have argued, and are by nature courteous and polite, I'm not trying to contradict them.
In
2011, I held an exhibition of my works, large format, exhibition at the Center of Repentigny. After which I sold a number of my photos to municipalities and agencies.

Since 2002, I spend six months a year (winter, of course, you will understand) abroad. My style is composed of 2 kinds of photographies. When I'm in Quebec, I do a lot of landscapes. I love texture. When traveling, I devote myself mainly to "street" pics. Increasingly, I love working in black and white. I love experimenting, trying new things. I am always on the lookout for new techniques for shooting and post-editing. I enjoy working with long exposure.

I use (currently) the Canon 5D Mark II, after having served for two years of the Canon 7D. I also have the Canon S100 for photos stealth ...
