Artist statement:

Following your story, your theme, your ideas, and your wishes we will work together to capture your instants. My name is Marc-Grégor Campredon, I am a French photographer living in the area of Ann Arbor, Michigan. My artistic approach is to focus on the realism.

Time spent does not matter; the idea is to catch the most natural and powerful picture, by the light, the color, the frame, and -of course- the subject. I studied Arts at the University of Paris-Est, France, developing my technique around the idea of catching live emotion, live story and live reality through my camera.

I traveled all around the world as a humanitarian videographer and photographer capturing the beauty, dignity and stories of people and cultures.

As a part of my engagement with the community a portion of all profits will be used to support non profits who maintain equity and dignity all over the world.

Biography:

When studying Design and History of Art in High school, I was requested to sit in Parisian cafés, to observe and draw the life and the people surrounding me. I discovered photography through the work of Cartier-Bresson or Doisneau often displayed on the café walls.

Photography became a part of my art as I used it to prepare and explore new concepts. Studying film, I learned the art of telling stories through images. I kept growing my love of photography as I learned to frame and light the world. I soon discovered the work of humanitarian filmaker like Peter Watkins, Raymond Depardon, Yann Arthus Bertrand and Radovan Tadic...

From 2006 to 2010, I earned a Master degree in Digital Art and a Bachelor in Film, while I was working for Mohamed Ulad and Jonathan Broda as Assistant Producer on documentaries.

In 2011, Inspired by Depardon and Bertrand, I spent the next two years in Africa filming the social story of the Kilimanjaro Porters.

In 2013, Upon immigrating in USA, I decided to pursue a full time photography career, developing my techniques with the goal of revealing the beauty and dignity of peoples and cultures. I earned my first dollars in August 2014 completing my first assignment for the University of Michigan.
