About Eric Rougier

Eric Rougier portrait

Paris Parisian of adoption since 1989, I have always hesitated from my student years between an artistic craft and a technical profession (in the IT sector, for example).

Paris After working several years as a photographer in Paris, I have been able, fortunately and luckily, to combine both fields by entering a few prestigious press agencies (e.g. Sipa Press, etc.) as well as big groups like Burda (Focus, Bunte,..) and renowned companies as Hachette Filipacchi while focusing my interest for digital photography. From that time on, I have progressively orientated my career on designing images databases, as well as administering networks and the systems around them - until 2002 for a french communication group.

Paris Shooting the wonderful sights and lights of Paris has always been my passion. I hope these pictures and this website will help me share it with you.

Paris This site would never have been as successful without the help and precious advices, at every level, from : Odette, Yves, Yann, Juliette, Muriel, Mete, Frédéric, Cécile and Stéphanie.

Paris A special thanks to Cécile Brand for her regular help on the site's translation and correction.
