About me

My name is Laurent Derossi, I am 27 years old who is a passionate photographer, based in Paris and native of Metz.

I started photography at the age of 18 when my dad offered me my first DSLR as a Christmas present, a Canon 1100D. To me, photography was just a way to get more memories, in a better quality..!

When I was 24, I had the opportunity to go to Perth (Australia) by myself and stayed there for 6 months. I found a job in construction as a laborer, saved money and travelled around Asia before going back to France to finish my studies (a Master in Marketing for those who ask).

Traveling alone was probably the best decision I had ever made. I was able to meet locals, to change plans on a dime and enjoy the culture of many of the countries I had visited. It is probably the best way to build confidence and learn who you are!

Back in France, I have been contacted by an Online Travel Agency that wanted to buy some photos of my travels.

I turned my personal Instagram into a Photography portfolio in 2015, sharing my vision of Paris.

As I was looking for a job, I managed my time between looking for a job, exploring Paris, seeing my friends and family.

I am now working full-time in Rennes and keep entertaining my passion for photography by going back to Paris almost every weekend, shooting with brands and taking photographs in all the countries I visit using a Sony α7 II.
