Maël discovered the possibilities to express his visions through Light and Sound during his practice at the Video Broadcast Media & Art School in south of France where he learned how to operate the deep mechanisms of video technology. Instructed by Pierre Radisic, his photographic works switched from analog to digital at the School of Art of Ixelles, Belgium.

Since his many travels around the globe, discoveries of traditional cultures has become a source of inspiration to anchor his works. 

Technical and Artistic abilities are his main hobby horse, tending to sublime the real life with the goal to tell stories with beauty and motion.

Coupling personal artistic researches and commissioned works, his main activities are: exhibition of his photographic essays, film director for cultural shows, lives and clips music videos.
