As a little boy I had a dream to own my business. So, when the opportunity presented itself, I created ANCOVIAC GROUP, an IT online training and coaching company. But I never really enjoyed it. It felt like … work. Actually, work was better. Wait, what!?

Yes, I was getting paid doing something I liked, and I was good at it. So why did ANCOVIAC GROUP feel like a chore. Isn’t that what I like doing? Wasn’t that a dream? … Marc Anthony said “if you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life”.
So fast forward a few months (and a move to Florida!) and today I do what I love. Christophe Photography is born. I have a vision for it and there is not a minute in the day where I don’t think and breath photography. Yet, it does not feel like work … and good things keep happening everyday.

Since we moved to Florida, I’ve sold prints, I’ve had pictures getting hundreds of likes in various Facebook Group, I’ve had painters asking me if they could recreate one of my shots, I’ve entered photography competition, I’ve watched (and read) countless hours of photography training to keep improving my skills, I’ve been accepted in a local art Gallery, I’m putting things in motion to attend art shows, and more importantly, I’ve met amazing people.
Let’s not forget the countless number of people who have reached out to me thanking me for how my photos made them feel. It feels good! I am finally doing what I love.

I have a vision for Christophe Photography and I’m working towards creating this vision yet, not once, did it feel like work.
So to all the people who have asked me “What happened to ANCOVIAC GROUP?” … well, nothing happened. I’ve just decided to listen to the people around me (I love you JoJo!) who believed in me more than I believed in myself. I’ve just decided to do what I love, and it finally feels AWESOME!
The journey has begun!
