"Which of my photographs is my favourite? The one I'm going to take tomorrow." - Imogen Cunningham

William Burkhardt portraitI'm a photographer based in the Pyrenees, France. I'm an avid martial arts practitioner specialized in brazilian jiu-jitsu and judo. I travel anywhere for my photography—I've lived 6 years in Brazil, traveled multiple times to the U.S., and eager now to discover more of eastern europe. I also have a very strong passion for visual stories and narratives.

Now, you may think storytelling isn't relevant to your project, or your brand or product. But there's a good chance it is—because that's how most of us connect to the world we live in. It's how we form ties and relationships, how the human equation comes into play; today, with social media, more so than ever before.

In 2014, at the World Jiu-Jitsu Expo in Los Angeles, I received the award of the best Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Photographer after a 4 years streak of covering the most pretigious tournaments of the sport such as the IBJJF Worlds championships in California and UEAJJF Worlds in Abu-Dhabi.

So this is what I'd love to do for you: illustrate your stories, make your projects shine.
