Today, 23 September 2011, is the official launch of www.winners.mu, the brand new website of Winner’s supermarkets.

Just to remind you, Winner’s is the proximity supermarket leader in Mauritius, and the favorite supermarket chain of Mauritians. A few weeks ago, I have worked for Winner’s on a few projects, among which was the launching of their website, a key success factor in their communication strategy. I have already posted a note with some sample images here on my blog some time ago, but today, I am very proud to be part of this website, which I find very beautiful, well built and very practical.

The first portrait of the month:

But the key feature of this website certainly is the complete 360° virtual tour of a Winner’s supermarket. When I met Mr. Venpin, General Manager of Winner’s, back in June, I proposed him this product which is not well developed in Mauritius and which is very rare for a supermarket (even worldwide). He was immediately enthusiastic about this idea as this is, I believe, a great interactive tool for a website. Moreover, the product I proposed him is interesting as the viewer can visit several rooms or places from a unique screen thanks to links in the virtual tour itself. For the Winner’s virtual tour, you can switch from the main entrance, to the fresh fruits and vegetables corner, to the butcher stand, to the bakery (a view from the private inside of Winner’s) and then to the drinks alley for instance … all that with just a click from one tour to another.

I am quite proud of the final result, which, I am sure, will help Winner’s in their communication strategy and visibility on the Internet.

Very soon I will make an announcement for the launching of my 360° virtual tour product. If you have an hotel, bungalows, a flat to sell, a supermarket or a shop, if you are an interior designer, an architect, or work for a real estate agency … this type of virtual tour is a great opportunity for you to make visitors discover your property, your product, your services. If you are interested, don’t hesitate to contact me 🙂

Some years ago, I had the opportunity to get to know through Flickr, Sebastien Bax de Keating, a Mauritian guy who was launching at the time Horizon, his company specialized in the renting of luxurious apartments in Mauritius.

Now that we are living in Mauritius, we met for real and we became friends. When he proposed me to take some images of one of his luxurious bungalows complex, I accepted immediately 😉

Paradise Beach Resort  is located at Pointe d’Esny, on one of the most beautiful beach of the whole Indian Ocean. There is a nice swimming pool in the complex, but honestly, you just don’t want to dive in there as the beach and the sea are simple pure heaven. The 8 apartments and the 2 penthouses are very spacious (150 sqm & 300 sqm respectively) and equipped with top quality devices. There are 3 rooms in the apartments, 4 in the penthouses, all of which have individual bathrooms. The views on the gardens and on the beach are wonderful at any time of the day and of the night. The neighborhood is calm and it looks like you are always alone or almost on the beach ! I was truly impressed when I first visited the complex to make the images.

This first impression was more than confirmed when I stayed myself at Paradise Beach with my family for a long week-end at the end of July. My parents, who come from North-East of France, were there too … useless to precise that they were feeling like in heaven ! The weather was perfect, although we were in the middle of winter – we even had a full day without any wind, almost like in summer. The lagoon was so blue, the water so good to swim ! The kids loved to play in the sand and to swim in the not-deep-at-all lagoon; they also went to look for starfishes. My mum and mum-in-law cocked some times in the spacious kitchen – we had breakfast and dinner on the terrace, admiring the stunning views for hours. We also went to Mahebourg once to have lunch and walk on the nice waterfront. Finally we had a short boat trip to Ile aux Aigrettes where we enjoyed an aperitif in the lagoon. What a wonderful time we all had !

I really recommend Paradise Beach to everyone who wants to spend unforgettable and relaxing moments close to the beach. For us, it was also a pure moment of family happiness. Here are also other guests reviews – Tripadvisor. Let me share some images with you, so that you can appreciate that my superlative description is well deserved :

Dear friends,

I am very happy and proud to announce the opening of Pixel in the Box studio, which is based in Coromandel. Although I still need to find a few accessories, I can already propose  lots of services – personal portfolios and fashion images, corporate portraits and images, family and kids portraiture, commercial images, products images … I have loads of ideas I’d like to realize in my studio and share with you !

Also, since I have a lot of space there, I will be able to propose some photography courses soon. More news about this to come in a few weeks.

Those services are only available on appointment. Thus, please don’t hesitate to contact me for a quote and to book your photo session !

Yesterday, while setting up all my equipment, I have shot a few trial images with my wife, Diane (who is not a model and who doesn’t like to pose hahaha 🙂 ), to check if everything is working fine. Here are those very basic first images taken in my studio:
