To be a photographer is not only a matter of having the best equipment and the knowledge about composing beautiful pictures.
To be a photographer is a matter of passing on emotion and behind every pictures, there is a story to be told.
So to say, to be a good photographer you have to be a good storyteller!
Every photographer’s got his own way to tell stories. His sensibility, his personality, his creativity, his own personal tale… these are all parts of the alchemy needed to create poignant photos. Our own approach is simple: we work as photojournalists . Discreet, attentive, we mainly use natural light, always favouring spontaneity against rigid poses.
Who are we?
We are Quentin & Charlie, two young french photographers based in Normandy. We have been working worldwide together for many years. Close and complementary, we anticipate every picture the other one will take so that we won’t miss any action or emotion.
But, why are we called « The Shoes » then ?
We first worked as travel & landscape photographers, before jumping into ethnic portraits.
It was while travelling around the world (often by foot) to meet people, that we developped our approach to human photography and photo-documentary. Our travel blog’s name being Shoesyourpath, people who follow us there started to call us « The Shoes« .
Today, no matter where we are, we shoot pictures with our own style, developed over years of travels and listening to people’s tales.
Thanks to our many travels, we are fluent in English and therefore we can cover international events.
If our philosophy touches you and you are in need of photographers you can trust, feel free to contact us so we can work together.
Looking forward to hear from you,
