photographe avec un petit p

Les rencontres candides, sympathiques et allumées que vous nous proposez trouvent toujours une oreille attentive chez moi. Chez vous il n’est pas question du dernier gadget. Lors vos conversations vous me faites découvrir des photographes et des créatrices-teurs de tous horizons. Votre Candid Frame est toujours inspirant, merci.

An artistic journey

I have been a youtube photography content viewer for a couple of years. After the excitation of beginning, of gear, etc, I realize it was really difficult to find out meaningful content. I couldn't find nourrishing content for my creative journey through photography. Until I have finally discovered The Candid Frame!!

If you want to listen to people talking about the creative, artistic and human journey that photography can offer to us, this is THE show!!
I love listining to Ibarionex and his guests via the TCF app (while washing dishes or driving). I even remove the Youtube ap from my phone!

This host is humble and humanly very smart (we don't need another geeky nerd talking about photography). His show is meaningful and honest, what I appreciate a lot, for everyone who carries photography in his heart.

Thank you SO MUCH, Ibarionex, for this amazing quality show :-)
