Steeve DUBOIS, 61 years – freelance photographer from the island of Mauritius, in the Indian Ocean.
I am married to Michèle MOSSES-DUBOIS, I’m a proud father of two sons, Ludovic and Adrien and a happy grandfather of a cute little girl by the name of Ily.
I started photography in 1979. Digital was not around yet and everything was silver-based. Those were the times of sleepless nights printing and hoping for successful images out of the developing trays.
Photography is first and foremost my passion. I enjoy shooting all kinds of subjects but I do have a preference for Nature subjects. I prefer Black & White over color.
I am the President of the Cercle des Artistes Photographes (CAP), the only existing photographic association in Mauritius. I joined the CAP in 1985 and I have been an active member since. My association is affiliated to the International Federation for the Photographic Art (FIAP).
Back in 2010, I met some members of the Global Photographic Union (GPU) in Jinan, China. I joined the GPU then and I have been a member since.
I enjoy taking part in photo competitions, both local and international, and I have been quite successful at it. I have some cups, medals, diplomas, HMs and acceptance certificates.
I hold the following photographic distinctions :
EFIAP, GPU Aphrodite, ECAP, ESFIAP, ESCAP, Hon PESGSPC, Hon FICS, Hon FSWAN, Hon FWPG, Hon.G.MWPG, Hon.E.WPG, Hon FPI, Hon.CPE, A.CPE, ES.CPE, GAPS, Hon UPA
