Why have I decided to be a boudoir photographer in Cairns?
Cairns is home. We have such an amazingly supportive community up here that our family settled in easily. Being a photographer is a dream come true. This was my first camera (click if you are curious). I was 5 when Santa brought me this gift and took it everywhere! However, being a "professional photographer" in France is not a real job. So I have been pushed towards more traditional studies.
Cairns has such a wonderful community of photographers that I could not help but get inspired. I trained for several years with some of the most creative artists in town. When I felt ready to be my own photographer, I decided to gather everything I learnt and use my skills to celebrate and empower people.
Where I come from?
I was born in 1987 and raised in France. At the age of 20 I realised that the world had a lot more to offer than what I was use to. It took me five years from when I first felt the urge to explore to finally take the leap of faith and leave Europe. I mostly decided to do this to learn more about other countries, cultures, and share new experiences with others.
In 2012, a month after landing in Perth for the first time, life took me to Lauderdale. A charming little Tasmanian community where I met my wife. She broke me free of the slavery I had fallen into (her side of the story). I was working 35 hour weeks for food, accommodation and an occasional can of bundy. Having said that everything was a new experience, I had no reason to complain.
Fast tracking to four years later, and we are welcoming our daughter into our tropical northern Queensland dream. Life has been full of surprises ever since!
Self-confidence has always been a struggle for me (you are not alone)
I am more fluent in French than in English, although it seems to change with time
I love chocolate, it's my cryptonite
My wife (it is true, and she is the one proofreading my English, so I better be kind)
My sensitivity (if you cry, there is a high chance I will get teary too)
I consider chocolate to be a fruit.
More about the team
We only want the best for you! As a male boudoir photographer I feel important to have woman present with us while we get to know each other more. Plus it would not be a real photo shoot without a professional stylist. That is why Hair and Makeup are parts of our service.
Cameras and eyes see differently, a skilled stylist helps get the best boudoir images possible. Plus, let's be honest, who does not love to be pampered by a professional? In our desire to provide the best experience, we only work with the best artists.
Cass is a big believer in the saying;
‘Choose a job you love and never work a day in your life’.
She lives and breathes makeup and has a talent for marking you feel comfortable and looked after while she works her magic.
Like she loves to say; ‘Makeup doesn’t make you look beautiful. You are already beautiful. Makeup is just the frosting on top!’
Cass is always on the move. She works with us during the week and looks after brides on weekends. She even finds time to share her passion with job seekers and teaches them new skills!
It is a privilege to have such a talented woman in our team!
