Visual Storytelling

"Convergence of tools, practices and techniques give to visual storytellers the power to tell better stories and reach out new audiences. This is an exciting period to live, a period of change, a time to reinvent what is photography. I've decided to embrace that movement."

Gerald Holubowicz

Photography, Multimedia narrative, Transmedia storytelling & i-docs

I've been a photojournalist for more than 10 years for various world reknown photo agencies such as Laif, Polaris images or Abaca in France and in the U.S where I lived for about 5 years. This period of time led me to question the impact of the stories I was covering for these news organizations and I realized that I could go a little bit further. The last couple of years profoundly changed my view on this profession. I'm not considering myself only as a photographer but rather as a visual storyteller focusing on deep stories that matters and can inspire others to change the Status Quo. Whether I use a camera to photograph or record video, the only thing that is important to me now is the quality of the story I'll tell as well as for the picture I produce.

What I Offer

“Stories are light. Light is precious in a world so dark. Begin at the beginning. (...) Make some light.”
― Kate DiCamillo, The Tale of Despereaux

For a visual storyteller, it's only natural to tell stories that shed a light on unknown situations, remarquable people or incredible facts. That's what I try to do now, whether is by sharing what I've learned, or helping other to create compelling stories.
