Today’s wedding photographer interview is with Jean Jacques Fabien of Fotoshoot Productions Co Ltd, based in beautiful Curepipe, Mauritius! Enjoy:
Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.
I have been into photography since 1994. I started with the usual family pictures, landscape and small events. Meanwhile, I rubbed shoulders with confirmed and professional local photographers. In 2001, I purchased my first digital camera and spent a lot of time shooting products and food but still as a passionate enthusiast amateur photographer. In 2005, things went a stage above when I purchased my first DSLR and committed myself into Art photography. I shot a lot of scenic as well as abstract and did some local expositions. It was in 2009 that I started shooting Weddings. It began with close friends, friends, then friends of friends and spread around. I created my company, Fotoshoot Productions in 2011 while things were getting more serious. I also started at that period to shoot for hotels mainly lifestyle and products (rooms, inside and outside hotels for marketing, setups and products hotels wanted to promote) but also some events and concerts. I developed a personal style using creative framing and angles and attracted attention in my Wedding pictures. I absolutely wanted to be different to other local photographers who would offer traditional Wedding shooting style. The success came little by little from that time and continues to grow every year.
