Partnership: Leica and the M10-D camera on the rooftops of Paris

In October, 2018, I partnered with Leica for the launch of the minimalist M10-D camera. 

I started shooting with Leica M cameras in 1998, first with an analogue M6 and then switching to a digital M9 in 2009 so that I could transmit images quickly. Although going digital was convenient for my workflow, I missed the simple feel and undistracted working style of analogue.

So when Leica contacted me a few weeks ago and presented me with a camera that offers the best of both worlds, I was enthusiastic to try it out.

I tested the Leica M10-D in Paris. Since I first moved to France, I’ve loved exploring the rooftops of the city, searching for new viewpoints, textures and capturing the unique Parisian light. My friends with access to their roofs generously allowed me to explore above their homes, and a team from Leica lead by Marco Casino filmed me exploring with the new camera. Below are a few images that I’ve taken from the rooftops of Paris over the years.
