Gilles GALOYER autoportrait

When my uncle gave me a camera, at the age of 11, I didn't think that this attention would take me professionally until today. From then on, still photography has been an integral part of my life. After a scientific BAC, I passed the entrance exam to the Gobelins (photo section of course), in Paris. I graduated after 3 years of dream studies. From now on, my path is traced, 1 year of military service as a photographer in the intelligence services of the Marine to then, exercise as a freelancer. Specialized in advertising-industry, I navigate geographically between Paris, Geneva and Grenoble. I like to say that, whatever my home port, I will always have the same type of clients. My work is characterized by an eclecticism of the subjects treated, going from the product staged in studio or photographed in natural scenery, to the realization of the image bank of a community of communes.

After 36 years of practice, the observation is obvious, the diversity regenerates my inspiration while defending the idea that commercial photography serves to magnify the work of men. These photos sum up an independent professional life of playing with light while accommodating the artistic principles of the renaissance with today's techniques.
