First of all, a big thank you and my deepest respect to all the people I met on the road and shared with me the better of themselves. Without forgetting a huge kiss to my family and my friends without whom I couldn’t have managed to live all these experiences
I love meeting autochtone people. Sensation to reconnect with earth DNA. I find in them an endless photographic inspiration
I love grounding wild & virgin nature. My goal in landscape photography is to transmit the invisible magic I feel in those places
I love capturing soul of people, and particularly to see their face when I show them the pictures and they feel proud of themselves
My name is Tristan Quevilly, I’m a french photographer living in Colombia, and here is my biography.
I was born in Quimper, a small town of Brittany at the far west of France. I had the chance to grow up very happily with my parents and sisters, far from crazy cities.
Young, I started to explore the surroundings with my bike and play in the wild. I always loved it. I remember that, before falling asleep I would often wonder what my life would be later on.
That was the starting point of dreams with all sorts of scenarios. I think it is a self promise I made younger that lead me to my life today.
My first steps in Photography
Since 2003, I’ve been travelling and working in a lot of different countries. Through all these trips, the people I met and the experience acquired tailored my choice of life style.
I took photography seriously 4 years ago, when I started going through books and videos about it. But that was after about 10 years of practicing, having fun with my camera without any particular knowledge and shooting when I felt like it.
What I do now
I am living in Colombia today, which is an amazing country with an excellent quality of life. People here are just extraordinary and it is a paradise for photographers as well.
I work for a Travel Agency called Aventure Colombia. A job where I combine my passion of traveling (and my love for photography), as I am, today, the communication director of the agency.
The best part in this job is that I get to travel and explore new parts of the country to create new tours and trekking out of the beaten tracks all over Colombia. I often lead tours as a guide, which allows me to keep taking pictures in incredible places.
What’s next ?
I am not a professional photographer yet. Maybe I should keep it as a passion, because I know, the road is still long before I get to live comfortably from photography. That life belongs to the best of the best, and I am far from being the best. But learning is limitless.
My dream is to live off my passion. It’s always good to dream! 😉 So I’ll will go a step further and develop my activity in order to earn a bit of money from photography. At least I need to do it to pay for my gear. That is why I created the stock photo pages and fine art photography prints pages.
My plans are to create photography workshops in Colombia and hopefully other countries. So don’t hesitate to follow up the next steps, and Inchallah, it will be full of trips and photography !
