ABOUT

J'aime Les relations Humaines, le travail collaboratif, pour cr’©er ensemble. Je Suis tr’ås perfectionniste et Je consid’åre que l'on apprend toute notre vie, surtout en photographie. Je suis exigent avec moi-m’éme mais aussi avec les autres. 

I like human relations, collaborative work, to create together. I am very perfectionist, and I consider that we learn all our life, especially in photography. I am demanding with myself but also with others.

Alain, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as Photographer?

J'ai toujours connu la photographie. Mon p’åre faisait beaucoup de photo, puis mon fr’åre. Nous avions une Chambre noire ’¾ la Maison. Donc j'ai commenc’© ’¾ photographier tr’ås jeune avec d’ås le d’©part, une attirance vers l'authenticit’©, les ’©motions. 


I have always known photography. My father was doing a lot of photography, and then my brother. We had a dark room at home. So I started shooting very young from the start, an attraction to authenticity, emotions.

Who is your inspiration in life Alain? How do you stay inspired as a Photographer?

People

We all make mistakes Alain; we wish we could take back. What was the mistake you made in the past that you wish you can take back?

Photoshop. 

Je me suis perdu photographiquement avec photoshop, les filtres, les effets... pour au final faire quelque chose qui n'’©tait pas moi. Quand j'ai pris conscience de ’_a, j'ai jet’© toutes mes photos ’¾ la poubelle et j'ai recommenc’© de z’©ro.

I lost myself photographically with photoshop, filters, effects ... to finally do something that was not me. When I realized that, I threw all my photos in the trash, and I started from scratch.

Alain, How do you describe yourself in terms of working with clients?

Professional

Please tell us, Alain, how do you prioritise work, social life, friends, and family?

Famille et vie sociale (y compris les amis). Nous sommes humains avant toute chose.

Family and social life (including friends). We are human first of all.

Alain, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.

I don't understand the question. What do you mean about this?

Alain, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Photographer.

Cela n'est pas encore arriv’©e et j'esp’åre la voir avant ma mort


It has not happened yet, and I hope to see it before my death.

Alain, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?

Ce qui fut excitant c'est de partir de rien si ce n'est une vague id’©e, et, ’¾ partir de l’¾, de construire quelque chose ensemble, avec la styliste, la Maquilleuse, la coiffeuse et les mod’åles, chacun apportant sa pierre ’¾ l'’©difice commun. C'’©tait pour mon premier shooting ’©ditorial 

What was exciting was to start from scratch if not a vague idea, and from there, to build something together, with the stylist, the makeup artist, the hairdresser and the models, each bringing his stone to the common building. It was for my first editorial shoot.

What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?

’_tre autocritique, humilit’©, apprendre et toujours apprendre mais au travers des livres et pas ’¾ travers Internet. Regarder et comprendre ce que les grands photographes ont fait. Se remettre en cause continuellement. 

Be self-critical, humble, learn and always learn but through books and not through the Internet. Watch and understand what great photographers have done. To question yourself continuously.
