Staying active online has become one of his biggest challenges. Here are a few pieces of advice he has for doing so:

- Go through your old hard drives and previous photography sessions. You ay be able to give new value to old photos with new techniques or a fresh perspective.

- Dare to get creative at home. A cup of water, a mirror, a projector, a glass that lets you play with the light, they’re all elements that can help creates captivating images.

- Enjoy the ritual of posting on social media. Choose photos that you like, retouch them, adapt them to the format. It’s a great way to improve your skills, the images, and your time. Once they’re up, don’t forget to interact with your followers.
