影/法國攝影師為愛來台深受感動 誓言將把寶島之美帶回歐洲!| French photographer falls in love with Taiwan

【看CP學英文】來自法國西南部波爾多的Mathieu Giabicani今年29歲,他的中文名字叫張令承,年輕時的他從未想過會愛上旅行,也從沒想過會認識台灣女孩,為了追愛遠渡重洋來到遙遠東方美麗島國——台灣。

Mathieu Giabicani is a 29-year-old French photographer who had never thought that he would fall in love with travel nor meet a girl from Taiwan. Still, he has settled on this beautiful island in the far east and met his better half here.

身為全職攝影師的他經營影片製作公司「Rollin Production」,孤身一人工作,從剪輯、空拍機操作,通通自己一手包辦;縱然辛苦,但也是因為工作才開啟了他人生的另一扇窗,開始在歐洲多國旅行拍影片。

As a full-time photographer, he runs a video production company “Rollin Production,” and works alone, doing everything from editing to drone operation.

Although the work is heavy, the job has opened another window in his life and he now travels around Europe to make videos.

直到2016年,張令承與其他三位朋友開始紐西蘭之旅,一待就是一年,這一年也成為他人生的轉捩點,「自此,我徹底愛上旅行。」勾起那年美好回憶,他堅定地說。

In 2016, Giabicani and three of his friends went on a year-long trip to New Zealand, a year that marked a turning point in his life!

“I fell in love with travel,” he said when reminiscing about the NZ trip. 

「就算手上握著工作,旅行對我來說非常重要,讓我能開拓視野的同時也好好休息!」

“Even though holding a job, travels are important to open minds and to have a break! That’s why I’m trying to travel as much as I can,” he continued.

談到為何來台灣時,張令承興奮表示當時是為愛來台,2017年,他從紐西蘭回到家鄉法國數月後,拋下工作,毅然決然飛到台灣與當時在台的女友(現在老婆)見面。

In 2017, a few months after he returned home to France from NZ, he set aside his job and decided to fly to Taiwan to meet his girlfriend (now wife), who was in Taiwan at the time.

「我想說何不乾脆來台灣開始新生活!」他感概地說道,沒有她(老婆)我大概永遠不會來到台灣了。

“Why not, trying a new life there,” he said, he’d have never visited Taiwan without her.

花了五個月的時間,張令承上山下海,跑遍台灣各個角落,帶著專業相機與老婆一同深入了解這片土地的美,記錄下美好旅程。

Along with his wife, Giabicani spent five months exploring this land’s beauty and filming the beautiful journey.

然而,3年前來台探索主要目的並非工作做影片,所以有些畫面他沒有捕捉到。「台灣有好多好多值得拍攝的人事物。」他表示他現在正在認真籌備明年要再來台灣拍攝。

However, the main purpose of exploring in Taiwan three years ago was not to work on a video, so there are some scenes he did not capture.

“There are so many things to film!” He revealed that he was planning to film another video about Taiwan next year.

「我想好好花時間,完整呈現出台灣的美。」

“This time, I want to take my time to film something. That really shows Taiwan as it must be shown!”
