Skyfall hold upAbout this photograph
Master of staging, Nicolas Bets is an eminent photographer of Parisian fashion inspired by the world of cinema to produce his frenzied compositions. The Belgian photographer strives to tell a story to spectators, as though they were looking at the freeze frame of a film during a screening. For their part, the extravagant models that he directs pose with the virtuosity of actors in front of his lens. His images work on our funny bones, with each detail taken to its extreme. Sometimes it is an object that sparks a series, or a place, an emotion or personality. ?Skyfall Hold Up? was taken in the middle of winter for haute couture brand Louis Vuitton. Two luxury lingerie models parade on the tarmac of the airport in the Parisian suburbs, despite the 3° C presented on the thermometer. Nicolas Bets? imagination is absolutely limitless.Read more Read less

Nicolas Bets arrives in Paris from his native Belgium at 17, to become, like his mother, a photographer. He graduated after only one year in photography school. During seven years, he attends to great names in the profession, such as Claus Wichrath and Jean-Daniel Lorieux. On its best playing field, combining delusion and rigor, the aesthetics and sense of detail are pushed to the extreme. Between the harmony of colors, the sets, and the expressive power of the characters (sometimes numerous) he puts on stage, Nicolas Bets signs a recognizable and unique brand of his kind.
