I am delighted to introduce my brand-new professional photography website: Astrid Templier Photography. You may also find it in the menu of this blog.
After several years of being passionate – if not obsessed – about photography, I have finally decided to silence any doubts and branch out on this new adventure to become a full time professional photographer.
Creating beautiful photographs, capturing the great moments, the people and all the wonderful things that make life worth living is what drives me. And this is what I am striving to achieve in every single photograph I take: trying to encapsulate the beauty of each instant and make it last forever.
The highlight of my new website is wedding photography. I have always loved to photograph weddings, as this special day really is always so unique for every couple. They are so happy and in love, they quite literally glow. I always feel very fortunate to witness and capture those one-of-a-kind moments. Another great way to get amazing couples pictures in a more relaxed environment is the “engagement” sessions. Before or after the wedding, they are usually set in a location that is meaningful to the couple and allow them to really enjoy the moment. Photographing people is one of my favourite things, so I guess it comes as no surprise that I also shoot all kinds of portraits: friends, family and maternity pictures, as well as corporate.
Despite being French, I am based in London and am always happy to travel in the UK and abroad for photography commissions. If you require more information, please don’t hesitate to give me a call on +44 7500 598 213 or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope to hear from you soon!
L’Atelier de Camille just launched its second collection for the Autumn/Winter season. A wonderful sequel to the Spring/Summer opening collection, this second outing seems even more elaborate and matured than the first one. Of course, this may come from a slightly biased point of view, as Camille, the talented designer at the helm of the Atelier, is no other than my sister.
However, I had the opportunity to see and get a feel of the whole assortment first-hand as Camille asked me to shoot her second collection. Working together on this photo shoot was definitely an amazing experience. Knowing each other so well made things so much easier and quicker. No hesitation, no doubts, everything went smoothly and efficiently. Efficiently it had to be, as we shot 22 outfits in less than a day. That was a challenge I must say, but one that I would love to take up again next season!
Now ladies, judging by the results of the first week’s sales, it won’t be long before the collection is completely swiped off the online boutique… so I would’t waste a minute to get my hands on that lovely dress, this cute jacket, the poppy red top – oh and that CAPE – if I were you.
Last month, I took a few portraits of these two lovely Colombian brothers who live in Shoreditch. Tom and Mat did not wait for the Olympics to discover the East End of London. They have been based in Shoreditch for a couple of years now and they are tremendously enjoying it.
These images were taken just outside of their house, on a quiet residential street just off Bricklane and Bethnal Green. I found that the red brick walls and the small leafy courtyard behind their house provided just the right backdrop to this impromptu photo session.
