Welcome to the first “Mini Expo” post of Dentelle+Fleurs, in which I’ll showcase my favorite photographers from Montreal (and maybe expend to other cities, who knows!). Photography has always been a part of my life, I always loved to capture images and moments, and looking at other people’s work has thought me so much through the years. Being inspired is always a good idea and that is the meaning of this new kind of posts.
I wanted to start the Mini Expos with someone that captures great faces, shares not only simple beauty, but also a different universe in her images. Bianca Des Jardins can tell a story in only a click, a story with a soft and beautiful vibe. I “met” her on Instagram (my favorite platform) and since I followed her, I’ve always been a fan, because her work is simply amazing. I asked her a few photography questions to let you guys know what she is all about:
What are your inspirations? Light, art, youth, love and this very moment.
Do you prefer digital or film? My heart belongs to film photography, but I prefer digital for his efficiency.
Favorite photographer? I have lots, but my faves right now are Vivienne Mok and Kesler Tran.
Why photography? When I was 15, I was (and still is) a huge fan of Lara Jade. I started looking into photos by creating artistic images with a webcam (yes!), then I got a better instrument and I knew that this is what I wanted to be, a photographer.
What would you say to someone who wants to start taking photos? I finished photography school 3 years ago and I still think I am at the beginning of my learning process. Shoot, Shoot, Shoot, never stop and always look forward, because it takes time. Also, developing your own style is very important.
