MP : Movies, people and rock music are my main inspirations at the moment, my motivation is trying to create my own style and personal sense of fashion, it needs a lot of work and efforts. i would love to be able to create one day an image image that could be described as timeless and personal. How do you describe your style? MP: I enjoy working simple, adapting myself to every situation. I love to shoot both Women and Men fashion and i enjoy artists portraits as well'. i would describes my style as 'sensual and rock'. Is there an image from your early days (your own or someone you admire) that still makes you go wow? MP : yes my first cover of Slurp magazine with Matt Loewen i really love that image and i still enjoy watching it, considering it is one of my earliest, so I'm very linked to it because of that too. i think it has something magic, it doesn't get old. i think every person has a different idea of the same image and I like it to be that way.
