A thorough and passionate studio

About us

Since 2009, a dozen associates – photographers and retouchers – have been hard at work making your photographs creative. As specialists in still lifes and packshots, we know how to showcase your products, regardless of their complexity: transparency, metallic parts, macro photography, effects of matter…

What’s the bond between us?
Our love for work well done and the enjoyment of working together, plus a good helping of humor!

The studio was founded in 2009 by Dominique Amphonesinh, an award-winning photographer (Hasselblad Masters Award in 2007, among others). Dominique was always passionate. He was our driving force, filled with boundless energy, unfailing positivity and a touch of recklessness. Unfortunately, he passed away in 2016. Ever since then, we’ve done our very best to pass on the values he instilled in us.

The ingredients of our success

Excellence

that’s our key, unifying theme. Whether it’s the associates that we choose to work with, the precision equipment that we invest in, or the proposals that we make, we’re obsessed with your satisfaction!

Transparency

we communicate clearly and honestly. You know from the get-go how we can help you and how soon we can do it. No false promises. We keep our word!

The Human Factor

no project is a success without lending an extra-attentive ear to your needs. We’re a partner you can lean on to make your projects successful. Plus, when you come to our studio, we’ll welcome you with a mean cup of coffee. Because with us, thoroughness and friendliness can go hand-in-hand.

«Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.»

Our studio

Our studio is located just a stone’s throw from the Seine river, in Clichy, at the heart of a bustling neighborhood in full transformation. We work in a 400-square-meter studio, which includes a main 200-square-meter set for photoshoots, a post-production area, a fully-equipped kitchen and a good coffee maker!

 

PS: If you’re a clipping service located abroad, there’s no point in contacting us. We already have a great team of very efficient retouchers.
