Padelone is not a new brand of pala but only a passionate player of padel who has been walking the slopes since the early 2000s, and often with his camera.

Almost 20 years of padel and still an "aficionado", he discovered the  padel in 2004 and began the experience of teaching padel at the Club des Pyramides in 2010. Emmanuel Tecles, alias Padelone is a photography enthusiast. He is already known and recognized through his pictures in mansions, castles, abandoned buildings.

Coming from the first generations of players in France, former member of the France team, he saw the evolution of the padel, and his artistic take on the subject has followed suit…

Associate the padel and the photo was obvious to him. First of all with the first events of Padel Magazine and the opportunity to shoot the Masters of World Padel Tour in Madrid or Monaco with “his old friend Franck Binisti".

Emmanuel Tecles wants to create a sporting image differently, in a more original and artistic way... with such a particular eye and style.

« I like the 3-dimensional space that the padel, this rather cubic volume with its inner effervescence, I gradually wanted to let the notion of movement appear in my photos and not just freeze a perfect posture. I like to play with pause times and try to produce new photos. Despite everything, you have to be well placed and above all persistent. Today I shoot for fun, for pleasure, for an unusual visual, and if my photo appeals, I will already be very happy… I even try to give it something fluid, dreamlike ».

The photos of Padelone bring a little poetry to the shots, it gives another perception of this rather lively and hard-hitting sport. The blurs and overlays are a creative device that gives another dimension to his photo approach “padelistic”.

Already photographer of the first circuit My Padel Tower, Padelone  is also published in magazines such as Instinct Padel. He also participated in the first book of padel « The fundamentals of padel ". He likes to combine these two activities of player and photographer and bring his personal touch.

Emmanuel Tecles is also developing an activity as an architectural and ruin aesthetic photographer with his site
