About Me - Antoine Bruneau Photography
Antoine Bruneau Photography

French self-taught photographer now living in Toronto, I have always been more fascinated by pictures than words. To put it simply, a bit of a dreamer: that is who I am.


For as far as I remember, even as a little kid, I couldn’t go anywhere without my Kodak camera which my parents bought me, seizing every opportunity to capture a piece of life. My photographic journey however really started in the late 90s. I tried to understand the basics and the composition of a picture by going through magazines and famous photographers’ portfolios, sharpening my eye while learning how to play with my camera by ‘giving it a try’. I first focused on black and white film photography, in both shooting and processing, taking my inspiration from candid photography, a world I have always admired. I now simply try to capture the words I read with my camera, believing in luck and in the ‘decisive moment’.


Through my pictures, I try to share my own vision of the world and I hope you will enjoy my work. Should you have any question, request or even greeting, feel free to send me a message!


Cheers,

Antoine
