About Me

Who, Why & What.

A little bit of the story

My early childhood was spent living on a small group of islands in the middle of the Indian Ocean. These islands form the Republic of Seychelles, a small and seldom talked about country.

I have fond memories of days spent at the beach digging for little shellfish locally known as tektek, going fishing on the high seas, hanging around with my auntie’s thirteen dogs, hunting fruit bats in the mango tree with my cousin, riding the back of giant tortoises in auntie’s backyard (everyone is an auntie in the Seychelles), sitting on the wall drinking sweetened vanilla tea whilst watching the sun set on the Indian Ocean and getting into trouble at school. I made it my duty to get into trouble on a regular basis.

Today, things are quite different. I’m an IT professional and Montreal is where I call home. Sea and sand have been replaced by ski slopes, skating rinks and snow. The dogs have turned into cats and I try to avoid trouble as much as possible.

Travel

I remember my first overseas trip when I was about 7 years old. Mom took me to Singapore to visit my cousin and from then on, traveling has always been part of my life. It’s this love for discovery, exploration, learning and new experiences that has led me to work in the travel/airline industry for over a decade. Needless to say, my passport is always valid and ready to go.

Photography

In life, there are things that pair beautifully well together like peanut butter & jelly. For me, it’s travel & photography. My photographic journey truly started around ten years ago when I graduated from the casual point & shoot to the DSLR. Since then, I’ve taken photos all around the world and have even shot events like a fashion show, a maternity shoot and two weddings.

Our minds easily forget and distort past events. I photograph my travels because they are some of the most beautiful experiences of my life and want to remember them. I also want to share the beauty of this world and its people in hopes that it inspires others to head out on their own adventures. ChristianLoizeau.com is my way of doing this.

I hope you enjoy these visual memories abroad as much as I have enjoyed creating them.

See you out there!
