Remi in The Provence Post!

Remi and I would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the wonderful Julie Mautner, who has chosen to feature Remi on her blog, The Provence Post. Julie has swoon-worthy professional experience with articles that have appeared in magazines and websites such as, Conde Nast Traveller UK, Travel & Leisure, Bon Appetit, Food & Wine, Gourmet and So yes, we can all agree that she has excellent taste! Her blog, along with her twitter and Facebook posts, keeps hundreds of expats and Francophiles up to date on all of the most important events and points of interest in Provence and on the Côte d'Azur. Need to know where to go for Thanksgiving? Ask Julie. What not to put in your garden? Ask Julie. Who sells the best green-tea flavored chocolate? You get the idea. To top it off, Julie is also now organizing trips to (and within) Provence for groups and indviduals! What an opportunity to soak up her expertise for all it's worth...

And Julie even has a scoop! She breaks the news that I don't believe that most of you know...Remi is shooting an assignment for the National Geographic Society!  It has been the dream of his entire career and after over twenty years of working around the world for many of the top magazines, it is finally happening. To find out more about what he will doing and to see more of his gorgeous photography, hop on over to Julie's post here.

And if that wasn't exciting enough, Julie also mentions a project that Remi has been developing for some time. He has created a new technique for shooting homes, hotels and other real estate. Yours truly does the styling for the shoots and the result is both unique and highly appealing, something completely unlike what you will see elsewhere. If you would like further information or pricing, don't hesitate to drop me a line. 

Those of you who read my blog regularly know that I am so proud of my wonderful man. His talent never ceases to inspire me. I can't tell you how thrilled I am that Julie sees it too and has shared it with her readers. Merci, Julie!

  12. Remi’s work is superb……..absolutely. I have visited his website on a number of occasions.....inspiring and deflating!
    You both have the talents I yearn for! On a number of occasions I have felt defeated by my lack of talent to write and photograph and have withdrawn from these activities… impatient, perfectionist.
    Bonne semaine. Bisous

  13. Oh Elizabeth, I do understand! There are times when I read Dominique Browning's blog and think "well, Heather, just hang up your hat right now" but I am really trying hard to get away from perfectionist thinking. No one would ever do anything at all if they felt that it had to perfectly done. And what beauty lies in imperfection too. So please do keep writing and taking photos--not to please anyone else but yourself! Bisous à toi aussi...
