Whether you are looking for a photographer for a photo shoot or for your wedding, I hope you’ll like what you’ll see here. If you like sensitive and living photographs, I would be happy to discuss with you about your project.

I am a photographer based in Paris but I also work in all over France or abroad.

Feel free to email me (maximefardeau@gmail.com) or to call me (+33 (0) 6 33 07 09 74) to plan our first meeting to get to know each other (non binding offer).

My name is Maxime Fardeau and I fell in love with photography about 5 years ago. Most of the time, I take pictures for my personal work and artistic research but I like as well any kind of new photographic adventures such as photo shoots (for comedians, artists, couples, or individuals) or wedding reportage. From these very different types of work, I keep on getting new ideas and new perspective on my work.

Analog photography, in particular, is important in my life. My favourite camera remains the Polaroid SX-70 which is, to me, the most beautiful camera in the world. There is always a room for this camera in my bag whether I’m in Paris, my home, or abroad. You might end up with one or two polaroids during a photo shoot with me, I can’t help shooting with this Polaroid camera!

Another camera I love is the Leica M6, it has been with me most of the time, even when travelling all around the world. This is a quiet, high-quality camera and versatile camera. I also love to use medium format camera like the Rolleiflex.

To me, analog photography produces more sensitive photographs with a higher quality than what digital photography can do. Besides, I like analog photography because it’s concrete and tangible: whether you are developing film rolls or printing pictures at the lab, it is something deeply rooted in reality.

However, digital photography is essential for a photographer nowadays. It’s a fantastic tool to edit and enhance photos. In addition, during my photo shoots, I also carry with me both an analog camera and a digital camera. Rather than opposing analog and digital, I think the best results lies in between: it comes from an alliance of both worlds.

Feel free to have a look at my website and my Instagram or Tumblr accounts for more information about my work.
