Canadian born , Neil Snape is a beauty and still life photographer, living for the past 20 years in Paris. After starting out in his first studio in Vancouver, the sheer attraction of magazines at the time like Vogue Italia, Paris Vogue, etc, resulted in moving to Paris in 1991. Over the past two decades his images have run in many of the leading fashion publications such as Jalouse, Marie Claire, Marie France, Madame Figaro, Monde d’Hermes, Vogue Hommes International, and many more.
From the beginning in Paris , Neil found new styles in photography so unique they spurred on commands for advertising, and editorial alike. Recent advertising clients include Cartier, Helena Rubesntein, Hennessy, L’Oreal, Sonia Rykiel , and other important brands.
Transitioning from stills to beauty was an ultimate goal porting the highest level of technical to the sensual world of cosmetics/beauty products. Fascination with colour lead to exploration of both colour palettes playing with harmonies not often used in mainstream commercial work. Detail and volume are a signature mark of his work.
In the last two years he has consecrated most of his personal work to make up close ups entirely for the passion of creating striking imagery. As technologies have advanced to the point where creativity exists in all aspects of the production, Neil has pursued perfection in every area of image making.
