Franco-Chinese and born in London, Floriane is a self-taught photographer. She has been lucky enough to travel around the world from a young age and would always take her camera with her, shooting wildlife, nature, and capturing people's different ways of living. In more recent years, she started working as a professional freelance photographer in London, doing portrait, lifestyle, maternity, product shoots for a variety of clients, including a sustainable clothing brand, musicians, families etc... She has her own project 'storiesbyshin' and recently won Fujifilm UK's online monthly competition.
I love meeting and getting to know new people, being a part of their lives for a day; the spontaneity of a shoot, not knowing where you'll end up or what the photos will look like, as there are so many variables: lighting, weather, surroundings, mood, chemistry etc
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
The most important thing during a shoot is for the subject to feel relaxed and comfortable. I like to take the pressure off by just having a normal conversation, getting to know the person a little, what they do, where they're from, to create a small connection so they can be themselves and feel more at ease
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
