Anticipation Is the Main Word for a Good Picture - Erwan Perelman

Erwan Perelman

You have to find your kind of pictures you like! But it’s more about the relation you got with your subject! 

1. Tell us about your background and journey. 

Well, I’ve been connected by making pictures thanks to my BMX! When I did my first travel to the USA, I asked someone to lend me his camera for my stay. And I began taking pictures back in 2012. Then, I had for my birthday present a brand new Canon 600D and a few lenses ( fisheye and 50mm ) and the journey has begun! 

I did many pictures during this time through my passion for BMX with my friends during our road trip and many events. 

Therefore, it’s in 2017 that I had the opportunity to work for a pictures company making school pictures! For this time, I’ve been practicing with professional materials, and I made my own company a year and a half ago! 

2. How and when did you realize your passion for photography? 

I have always been interested in pictures! But in the beginning, I wanted to be a filmmaker! And it’s in 2015 that I realized I really liked doing good pictures. 

3. What are some tips you would like to share with amateur photographers? 

Anticipation is the main word for a good picture! And be curious and look after other photographer’s work!

4. What are the important skills one should have to be a successful photographer? 

Commitment to work! You never stop, and one day it will pay! This can fit every type of passion for sure. But the more you keep your mind on your work, the more it’s gonna pay one day! 

5. What are various opportunities available for aspiring photographers? 

You have to find your kind of pictures you like! But it’s more about the relation you got with your subject! 

You’re not only taking pictures, but you are also living a real experience with him! This is how you can think about is what domain you want to have opportunities. 

6. Which is your favorite book and why? 

Homo Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari ! 

It’s good because it summarizes how mankind has been evolving for 70 000 years through all the evolution that we have done. But it’s an open reflection on our relationship with the world and Mother Nature.
