The Cordouan lighthouse marks the entrance to the Gironde estuary. It is the oldest lighthouse in France still in activity. It was completed in 1611 and was given to Louis XIV by Colbert. It is here that the first Fresnel lens was installed. Formerly called the "Versailles of the seas", "the king of lighthouses", or "the lighthouse of kings", it was the first lighthouse to be classified as a historical monument in 1862. It is a unique lighthouse of which you will keep a wonderful memory when you visit it.

Philip was born on the banks of the Loire river, and discovered La Trinité-sur-Mer when he was 4 years old. This is where his father gave him his first passion: sailing. The need of sea will not leave him anymore! At 9, he discovered his second passion: the photo thanks to his paternal grandmother who offered him his first camera. In the early 80's, Philip decided to live with his two passions: photographing to navigate and navigate to photographing. Named Painter of the French Navy in 1991, he testifies to the major events related to the sea world in order to preserve the memory of our contemporary maritimity, as had wished Richelieu creating the Corps of Painters of the Navy. Philip, as a sailor-photographer, has only one leitmotiv: to have every day a new desire of image to take and to share with you. For more information :
