Born and raised in Montreal, Canada, Frederic started taking black and white photographs at age 10. Graduating in 1974 with a Diploma in Communications Arts from Dawson College, Montreal, his work in the broadcast milieu, has allowed him to pursue his passion and vocation of freelance writing and photography. Well travelled, he has lived or worked in virtually every major city in Canada from coast-to-coast. His international voyages have taken him to more than 40 countries on six continents.
His odysseys form the foundation for dynamic slide shows and multimedia productions, presented with engaging music and lively travel lore to public and private organizations. In the last twelve years, he has presented more than 120 shows to groups in the Montreal region to popular acclaim.
From the cultural jewels of the Hermitage in St Petersburg, to the Kremlin in Moscow - his first month long trip to Russia in 2003, concluded with a train ride to Lake Baikal, Siberia, where he worked for two weeks as a volunteer with the Earthwatch Institute, analyzing the lake's water ecology.
In 2005, he spent seven weeks hiking and touring throughout Peru, exploring Inca sites, then participated in another Earthwatch Institute expedition - an archaeological excavation of the pre-Inca Wari Empire at Huaro, south of Cuzco.
The souks of Marrakesh and the dunes of the Sahara were his next destination in a month long, 3500km journey throughout Morocco in 2006, culminating with the ascent of 4,167m Jebel Toubkal, North Africa's highest peak.
A three-week journey to Jordan in 2007 saw him exploring the 2,000 year-old Nabataean ruins of Petra, ancient biblical sites, massive Crusader castles, and a trek through the desert of Wadi Rum, made famous by Lawrence of Arabia.
Siberia, the Russian Far East and Mongolia enticed him back to Asia, where Frederic traveled by train, bus and jeep for seven weeks during the summer of 2008. While in Mongolia, he worked again with Earthwatch, tracking and photographing endangered wildlife at the Ikh Nart Nature Reserve, in the Middle Gobi desert.
In 2009, he made a second pilgrimage to the Czech Republic, photographing the castles, chateaus and countryside of this unique and enchanting country.
An active member of the Lakeshore Camera Club of Pointe Claire, Quebec, he served as their photo Field Trip Leader for ten years, and as Nature Chair from 2003 to 2005.
An outdoor enthusiast, Frederic is an avid hiker, canoeist, cyclist, cross-country skier and certified scuba diver. His stunning imagery may be viewed at Remarkable Images.ca
