photographer luc remond

To become a professional photographer is no easy journey. Usually you have to assist for about two to four years - and that's often after completing studies. So the photographers that come out the other end are usually determined... and talented. One such example is Luc Remond.

Which five words best describe you? I’m perfect… sorry a perfectionist!, sentimental, intuitive, impatient and speedy.
What was your first job and what path have you taken since then? I’ve always loved being outdoors and during my travels through Europe had a stint on the Cote d’Azur as a plagiste, aka beach boy. Travelling with a backpack and camera eventually led me to take up photography, as my goal was always to avoid working in an office. As soon as I came home I began assisting Jason Loucas, and the rest, as they say…
What's your proudest career achievement? I’m proud every time my photos get a reaction. If my image makes someone think "wow", then it’s worth it.
What's been your best decision? To pretend I was interested in fashion photography, set up a test shoot with a stylist I knew and two years later ask her to marry me.
Who inspires you? Kelly Slater. I would love to be him for just one wave! Professionally, I’m inspired by the work of Slim Aarons. He wasn’t afraid to admit he spent his career photographing attractive people, doing attractive things in attractive places. He really lived the dream.
What are you passionate about? Warm summer evenings in the surf. A deep blue sky on a winter’s morning. Homes with perfect harmony. Evoking emotions through photography.
What's the best lesson you've learnt? Bend zee knees. Amazing how many things this can apply to.
Which person, living or dead, would you most like to meet? Daft Punk minus the robo outfits.
What dream do you still want to fulfil? Pina Coladas poolside in the tropics on my honeymoon.
What are you reading? Guernica by Dave Boling. Asterix the Gladiator by Goscinny and Uderzo.

Is the first photo from Lord Howe Island? Those mountains look familiar. A beautiful place and a great perspective taken to photograph it!

It was funny at the time I visited this post I was pulling my hair out with frustration at not being able to use my camera very effectively (I'm being kind to myself) I loved Asterix as a kid, I know it's wierd but I had a crush on him, impatient - yes, speedy - yes, intuative - yes, can I take a decent photo - not to save my life!! Makes me appreciate more the talent and skill of those who can. =)
