Today, we’re featuring Canadian film photographer Lionel Pierron. He brings his distinct style and unique voice to the world of fashion photography and was awesome enough to share some of his editorial work with us. Scroll down to see more, and here are a few words from Lionel about working with film:

After a few years working in event and nightlife photography, I realized I was shooting mostly outfits, not really what was happening. This is when I decided to shoot only fashion editorials.

Everything is shot with an analog camera. Analog photography gave me the passion for photography that I kinda lost while shooting events 5 times a week. The feeling of not knowing what’s happening and especially getting your scans back is something I wouldn’t change for anything in the world. The only other feeling I can remember being that great is opening a gift when you’re young and still thinking Santa is real (He isn’t?).

Shooting film in a field as overpopulated as the fashion industry is a big challenge. People who work with you need to trust you 100% because you cannot show them an unedited image on a small screen saying, “it looks good.” I embraced this challenge and I’m proud to still use film in a world where digital is everywhere. I cannot edit 90% of my image because of scan quality? No problem, I don’t need it, it’s raw and it’s beautiful.

Analog cameras and films used: Minolta SRT202 (Find at KEH Camera), Nikon F5 (Find at KEH Camera) | Kodak Gold 200 (Find on Amazon), Kodak Portra 400 (Find on Amazon)
