Maxime Besse – Photographer Profile

    We recently caught up with photographer Maxime Besse and learnt more about his recent bearded photography series with the bearded model Samuel Lhermillier.

    What about me?

    My name is Maxime, I’m a 26 years old photographer based in south of france.

    I got my first camera when I was 16, right after getting my first paycheck! What a cool moment!It felt just great, and that’s when i started to learn how to take pictures, only by myself. I used to look at photographs, advertising, and actors portrait across the street, and I was always taking pictures of them with my phone to keep them as they were very interesting!

    The world is such an endless source of inspiration. I studied graphism and marketing, and after graduation I decided to start my own business, making what I love the most, taking photographs. Hence the beginning, my passion goes for portrait, fashion, and telling stories! This is what suits me best. I have this unique chance of showing my vision of the world and people by using pictures as a support. I’m not the best storyteller around, but I can use light to say it all for me.

    What about this photoshoot?

    I remember that day, Sam and I had been chilling in Paris during the whole afternoon and we ended up in the flat where he was staying on that week. We sat around a cup of tea as we kept talking about things and others.

    Then I realized that the light was actually pretty interesting at this moment of the day and that it would worth a try to shoot something in this flat. Something minimalist, manly and intimate at the same time. Sam and I come up with the idea of the white boxer. We wanted to do something in which everyone could recognise him. Just a man waking up in underwear, coffee, no make up and messy hair..
