Thanks for visiting Cindy Voitus Visuals. When it comes to your personal information, we believe in transparency, not surprises. That’s why we (“Cindy Voitus Visuals”, “I”, “we”, “us” or “our”) set out here what information we collect, the purpose for using information and your choices and rights.
1. Who is Cindy Voitus Visuals
Howdy! I am a passionate French photographer featuring a variety of pictures and videos I’ve shot and filmed at music and contemporary circus festivals around the world (Canada, France, Netherlands, Germany, Portugal) to allow anyone — from ravers, daydreamers, artists, music collectives, record labels, festival organizers… all the beautiful souls out there — to fully revive the spirit of festivals year round through the smiles, the great vibes, the strong emotions, the deep connection… These moments are forever set in stones.
I strive to share and immortalize with a click the things that make us who we are as human beings in the most profound and positive way.
