What next?

2019 was a strange year professionally speaking. I spent the majority of my time asking myself where my business should go. And tried my best to broaden my clientele and gradually work a bit more in the commercial photography industry.

I learned so much this year, tried new genres and techniques, with Glamour and boudoir photography.

I left my flashes at home a bit more often.

I made a bit more studio-like work recently too.

I needed to do this year because a lot of people only know me as a dance photographer, and I discovered recently that I’ve missed opportunities and interesting projects because of that. They thought I would not be interested, or that maybe I wasn’t capable of directing a shoot with models that were not dancers.

So what I started in 2019 will continue in 2020. I will do my best to find the time to share this new chapter of my journey as a photographer with you. I will get out of my comfort zone, I will challenge myself with new projects, projects you wouldn’t expect me in. 2020 will be an exciting year. I just can’t wait to get things started.

By the way, I posted on Instagram my top 9… or should I say the 9 photos that you liked the most:

 

Like every year, I am always surprised by the pictures that got more “likes” on my instagram. So I figured it would be nice to share my personal “top 9”. Not That I consider these images like the best ones of the past year… But they somehow have a special place in my heart. So here they are, in no particular order :

Julie Charlet – Château de la Reynerie (Toulouse)

 

 

Marina Kudryashova – Marché de Lerme (Bordeaux)

 

 

Florencia Chinellato – Musée des Augustins (Toulouse)

 

 

Laura Viaud – Académie des sciences et belles lettres (Bordeaux)

 

 

Olivia Lindon – Hôtel du Grand Opéra (Toulouse)

 

 

Jacqueline Bâby – Musée de Confluences (Lyon)

  1. Haze, my husband is a voracious student of your photography. For 2020, is there any chance you’ll be doing a workshop, or something of that nature? I’d send my husband in a heartbeat as a surprise for him and he’d be in heaven learning from you and/or working beside you.

    I look forward to your response.
    Respects,
    Dore’

    • Hi! Thanks, for your message… So Happy your husband can learn from me. I do give workshops, but only in France right now! Where in the world are you? Subscribe to the newsletter to receive information about them. I hope we will get a chance to make this happen… best, Hk

  2. Hey, I’m a big fan of your work and I’m wondering – how do you make money/who are you selling to? The dancers and athletes themselves? Event organizers? Do you just sell prints of the pictures to magazines?

    Thanks!

    • Hi, and thanks for your message! I am a commercial and advertising photographer, so I work for a wide variety of clients. I can be hired by festivals, dance companies, and brands… but also freelancers… I also do corporate stuff from time to time and propose when possible private portrait sessions.
