Interview: Photographer François Fauré (France)

8 Jul 2019

Can you tell us a little about you?

I’m François Fauré, I’m 36 years old and I’m freelance photographer based in south of France in Toulouse

 

How and when did you get into photography?

I have begun to take photos in night clubs in 2012 during 3 years just for pleasure. After this experience, I had an opportunity to have jobs in photography, so I have launched my adventure to became as freelance since 2015.


What does photography mean to you?

To me, it’s a pleasure! Taking photos, discover new persons and try to show and fix emotions.

 

Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.

I try to be simple, catching emotions and try to have natural pictures without a lot of retouch. I have a particuler feeling with black and white and I mainly work with women : I don’t know why, it is easier to me to have inspirations. But maybe I have to improve my portfolio working a little bit more with men!

 

Where do you get inspiration from?

I spend a lot of time on social networks to discover new places, new models or new photographers and I try to adapt some really good works with my feelings and possibilities.


Do you think in advance what you want in the picture ?

Linked to my previous answer, I keep a lot of images by categories to build a kind of “inspiration database”. And when I have the good model and the good team to do a specific project, I regularly prepare moodboards to all the actors of the photoshoot.

 

Studio, on location or both?

Clearly on location but studio can be interesting too.

 

Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?

Paid professional.

 

What has been your most memorable session and why?

It is hard to distinguish one specific session. I have a lot of chance to have done photoshoots with very good models (who are very good persons too) and few results have been very good. The most important is too take pleasure and have a result that can be pleasant for all actors of a session.

 

Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?

I have my habits with Canon. I work with Canon 50mm f1.4

 

What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business?

For business, a new photographer has to understand that (at the beginning) the artistic part of the domain could be very small. Taking pleasure is sometines hard and it is not easy to discuss with customers every day. But I think it is the case in a lot of other jobs !

 

What do you think of our new magazine?

Great job ! It is very interesting to discover photographers or models all over the world with a different way: it is not based only on their works but with a peace of who is the person  behind the photographer or the model !
