Chontelle in Paris

This footage was shot during our trip to Paris, May 2017. I discuss how I select our accomodation which we use to shoot, Peter’s lighting set-up and a few other things!

Peter was shooting on his Hasselblad X1D, using Natural Light, room lights and the Rotolight Neo.

  • Rozanna, thanks for sharing this. It’s so amazing to watch behind the scenes. How Peter can get simplest setups, locations etc look amazing “to die for” as Peter would say!

    Thanks for the tutorial.
    May I ask if it is possible to know the address or the district of this gorgeous loft in Paris?
    It is not easy to find even deeply digging in the Airbnb site…
    Thanks a lot.

    • Hi Luca, thanks so much for the awesome feedback 🙂 we are glad you enjoyed the tutorial! Unfortunately this Airbnb is no longer available, we tried to book it last year but it is unlisted. However I can let you know it was in the Pigalle area (beautiful place with awesome restaurants 😉 )

        Hi Bec, many thanks for your answer, I will look for another flat.
        You are right, Pigalle is a beautiful place, even if I personally prefer the “rive gauche” (let say Quartier Latin) atmosphere.
        By the way, enjoy your trip in Europe!

        PS I enjoyed very much all tutorials, above all those of the amazing “lighting” section, but it is very interesting to know how Peter works also from the “behind the scenes” point of view

        • Hi Luca, my pleasure, sorry I couldn’t be more help though. I’ve never heard of ththe Rive Gauche but I will have a look in case we return to Paris next year! Europe was great, we are back in Australia now and will have some awesome new tutorials coming soon 🙂

          Thanks for the great feedback, we are so happy you’ve been enjoying the tutorials.

  • Peter, I just joined a few days ago and have been watching your methods. I have 2 comments.

    1. I’ve never been that big a fan of B&W but you have opened my eyes to some possibilities and methods – thanks to your aesthetic. Having said that, I am still more of a color guy so if you could do a little more work in color it would help me (and maybe others).

    2. Your shoot with Cristina was enlightening and you included 2 sample images to practice on – which I have been doing. Are there other tutorials that include sample images? If not, maybe you could provide some.

    Overall, good job!

    • Hey Bob! Thanks so much, Peter and I were talking the other day about putting some more colour content on Inspire 🙂 I’ll try talk him in to doing the next few we have coming up in colour.
      And yes of course, I’ll put up a few more sample images asap for photoshop practice and let you know when they are there

    Hi Peter, I would like to see how you shot Chontelle in this apartment with the lightning etc… And I can see from the other comments that there was a Video.
    But now all I see is only 1 Video of Chontelle Interview!
    Where are the Videos from the shooting?
