While he’s been directing short films since his youth, in 1997 Étienne Perrone received a formal education in cinematography at the school of cinema and audio-visual media in Lyon. There he learned how to work with light and discovered photography. Etienne Perrone is constantly moving between the worlds of film and photography. He began in scriptwriting but photography got the upper hand when in 2016 he affirmed his true passion lies in capturing images rather than writing stories. The strong influence his years in film school had on him can be seen in his work, which retains a cinematic ambience and elements of cinematography. He’s still pursuing his career as a film editor for CAPA TV Press (Special Mission, Capital, TFI Report just to name a few) but his artistic talent is lauded at shows in Lyon and the United Arab Emirates.
