I'm Rachel grew up in France watching a ton of movies (French ones obviously, foreign language ones and lots of independent films too), playing with a camera as often as I could and dreaming of becoming an air stewardess as I imagined my life would involve a lot of travelling!
Sadly the dream did not work out. Instead, I followed a traditional career path - tried a lot of jobs in my 20's and managed to combine work and travel (I worked in travel agencies and airlines).
After dabbling in a few business ventures, I realised that I'd been missing the point all along! What I really wanted to do was tell stories using my camera (movie watching got me somewhere after all!) and explains why I specialise in branding photography & film. (My dream now is to direct a movie and get to walk the red carpet in Cannes but I have a long way to go!)
There's a whole creative angle in the process of building a visual story from scratch that I enjoy very much. It involves so much more than just pressing a button at random and hoping to get one good picture in a flow of 1000's. Each image is created with a purpose!
