In April I was asked to photograph a wedding in Malta, and more precisely in the marvelous island of Gozo. The Island of Gozo has kept its authentic flair, and despite being just 15Km long it is rich of impressive locations, making it a paradise for the photographer. There you can find a medieval citadel, nicely decorated villas with swimming pools, beaches with crystal clear water or impressive cliffs. And if you add a beautiful weather and a spontaneous couple, all the ingredients are there to make memorable pictures, which we did ;-). So here is my selection of pics :
When it come to providing the service of a photo booth, it is as much about delivering entertainment than delivering pictures. Clients value the pictures essentially based on the emotion that they had on the moment. If it was boring, even perfectly crafted pictures will not move them. This is even more true when it comes to a Bachelorette Party Photo Booth.
If you are a photographer living in the USA you certainly know about Paul C. Buff, but here in Europe most of my photographers friends have never heard about it.
Paul C. Buff does not have any dealer or distributor in Europe (neither in the USA actually), but it is still possible to place them an order from Europe. It is somewhat more complicated and will cost you about 50% extra due to shipping and custom taxes. This is what I going to explain in details in this article, based on my experience of being a customer of Buff in Europe.

Shooting at a color festival is a great occasion top take beautiful portraits, but you must be aware that the color powder is a threat for your lens and camera. The powder is as fine as flour and will enter through any gap or unsealed join. It is in fact made of rice or corn flour so at least it is not harmful for yourself. In this article I provide advices to keep your equipment perfectly clean and safe during such an event.
Photographs from the Holi Fusion Festival in Eindhoven
The last week end I had the opportunity to shoot for the Holi Fusion Festival in Eindhoven. The Holi fusion is a music festival inspired by the Indian Holi festival, where people throw color powder at each other.
This was a unique opportunity for colorful portraits and party pictures, and a great fun to be there as a photographer. So I literally took hundreds of portraits, exhausted my battery and filled my memory card. I show a limited selection on this website but you can see the full album on my Flickr : https://www.flickr.com/photos/damienfournier/sets/72157646901592626/
