FORTS DE L'ESSEILLON

Making photography from the air is my real passion.

This dream started to become true in August 2016 when I first flew on an ULM (ultra-léger motorisé), a motorised delta wing that took me over the French Alps. 

Since 40 years ago, l'Association des Forts de l'Esseillon have been carrying out restoration projects of the forts of Esseillon, in the Savoie region in France. Every summer many volunteers participate in the preservation of these historical monuments (more info at http://www.esseillon.fr/). These photos were taken during my stay in the chantier in August 2016. Capturing the Fort Victor-Emmanuel from the air was absolutely out of this world.  

Special thanks to Alain, Alban, and MAURIENNE ULM from the Sollières-Sardières aerodrome for making this possible. Merci beaucoup!
