Somewhere between photography and illustration, influenced by cinema, video games and pop culture, Simon Duhamel's photography registers in a modern approach to digital photography. Both photographer and retoucher, Duhamel knows ho to create unique scenes and ambiances for each of his realizations, providing each project with a distinct visual signature.
My name is Simon Duhamel, and for the past 3 years, I've been making my way in the photographic world. I started documenting my progress with a blog I still write on a daily basis, http://simduh.blogspot.com
, sharing my thoughts on photography as well as my work and inspiration. I'm a big promoter of emerging artists and to push the concept, I recently launched with my collegues a new collective of photographers and visual arts artists called "Made of Stills". (http://www.madeofstills.com
Other than photography, I've worked on several stop motion projects. Along the way I had the chance of working as Director of Photography with talented people such as motion designers GPG (www.gabrielpg.com
), Julien Vallée (www.jvallee.com
) and Karim Charlebois-Zariffa (www.karimzariffa.com
), creating ads, tv shows intros and videoclips.
As for my personal work, I am very influenced by pop culture, comic books and video games. I like to instill specific moods to all my images, allowing myself to explore, providing each project with its own visual signature. I specialize in advertising but also work with artists.
I am currently working on a long term project to portray emerging artists from Montreal and around the world. One day, I hope to get this project published. Till then, lots of work ahead!
