About this site
This is Sophie G’s website.
I was born in Manche (Normandy), I shared my father’s liking for photo, developped it during my studies, and I’m mainly interested in landscape and night photography.
I moved to Rennes (Brittany) in order to study architecture, and decided quite early in the cursus that I wouldn’t be an architect, but would rather use all the various teachings I got to do something else. I didn’t know much about this something else, but at school I discovered 3D modelling and desktop publishing and this something came into view. (thanks Apple for providing the machines that drew me to computers:)
So after I graduated, I started working on multimedia and 3D, in Nantes then back in Rennes. My efforts are featured in the jobs and images pages.
About ’96, I first laid eyes on some html code. I got an internet connexion and started this web site a year later. This hobby lead me to switch to webdesign professionnaly, and that’s still my job…
I’ve moved to Brest at the beginning of 2005, and now work freelance in webdesign. Brest is at the western tip of Brittany, a big sheltered harbour. There’s now a page for Brest photos on this site.

This site has had several designs, one after another or available at the same time as a visitor preference.
- Blue Maze style, the ‘original’ look of the site, which has evolved between ’97 and ’04
- Dive! style, bubbles at the bottom of the pool, from ’03 to ’04.
- Grey photos style, shades of grey and black, from ’03 to this day.
