Since I was a child, I have been fascinated by art and creativity.
I was born in a modest family, in a small neighborhood with building as the only landscape.
My name is Samir. I live in South France. I started drawing, making graffiti’s and inventions when i was a kid. Then, Internet, Photography and tools such as Photoshop opened an endless horizon to travel through graphic universes. They allowed me to develop my own ideas and launch my computer graphics business. Today, my style is atypical, situated between reality and imagination. I hope my artworks make people dream, travel and change perceptions.
I share my own vision of landscape with editing.

Bio and Path :
I am a self-made Graphic Designer, Always learned all by myself using the internet, forums, youtube videos, etc… I started my own business of Graphic Designer in 2011, and since, I do some little projects and some others big works for regular clients.
After the summer 2017, a friend had told me to start photography, I am really falling in love with Photography retouch at this time, I had never touched Lightroom before July 2017, so.. I started from the beginning, with learning basics of retouch, landscape and portrait, I watched a lot of videos about the basics of Photography, then I bought my first camera, a Sony A7 with the Kit Lens, and it was a second hand. I sign-up on instagram at the same time, at first just by passion, to share with others my first retouch, to receive some criticism and also to inspire me, I found amazing artists on instagram and I continue to discover from days to days new talents.
After 1 Year on IG :
After 1 year on instagram, and a lot of repost, sharing on big page, some good collaborations with famous people like the DJ Don Diablo, I decided to transform my passion into something more professional, I deleted lot of my post, I changed my instagram profile and my bio description. I started to contact brands, looking for collaborations, partnerships. Then I started to sell presets and tutorials, keeping my work of independent graphic designer beside, it’s like an evolution of my work, I was sometimes boring to only work for clients, without leaving my imaginations speak to 100%, so.. I found on my instagram a way to share my personal views of places, landscapes…
And for informations, I don’t do to a Graphic designer school, or something similar about Photography too. I think we have all our own way to learn, some of us prefer School, others prefer to learn by them selves, the most important it’s to be be comfortable with the tools you use (video.. book.. teaching…).
