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 with pictures, but also sharing these experience with others
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.
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.
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 have been working 4 years for a local Travel Agency. It was a great job where I combined my passion of traveling (and my love for photography), I have been in charge of the creation of the new tours, implementing the coding of internal management system, and later on the communication director of the agency, in charge of creating their inbound marketing strategy .
The best part in this job is that I was getting to travel and explore new parts of the country to create new tours and trekking out of the beaten tracks all over Colombia. I still often lead tours as a guide, which allows me to keep taking pictures in incredible places.
I recently decided to live my dream and to live off my passion.
So I quit my job and started to lead my own photography workshops in Colombia and hopefully other countries are coming soon
So don’t hesitate to follow up the next steps, and Inchallah, it will be full of trips and photography !
