Richard-Pierre is one of the few active men in the Earth Wonders flickr group. it's an honor to have him here today. we can learn a lot from this interview. thank you RP :)

when did you first picked up a camera, and what kind was it?
I asked a camera for Christmas when I was about 10 years old. It was a Kodak with a long flash cube to put on it. When I look the pictures I took with my Kodak, it was not very impressive!

what is your favorite time of day?
Definitely the morning. All the day is in my hand. I love the light of the sun at this time and I go for a walk along the river not far from my home.

if you were a song, which song would you be?
Superman (it’s not easy), Five for fighting. This song give me wings when I run. I listen this song 6 years ago during a conference of Pierre Lavoie, a ironman winner.

what is your favorite subject and why?
Nature! You can take picture at the same place and have 1000 differents beautiful results.

what is your biggest challenge and why?
Now I want to became a black belt in karate. But two years ago I accomplished a very big one: complete a 42.2k Marathon. You can see, i need to have goals to stay “alive”.

if you could what advice would you give to yourself ten years ago?
“Don’t be afraid, don’t wait, you can do it” too.

do you have a motto that you live by?
A - S - I - C - S… Anima Sana In Corpore Sano. In French we said “un esprit sain dans un corps sain”. The meaning of that for me is that you have to take care of your body & your mind. Both are important.
