THE SIGNATURE OF A TIMELESS PORTRAIT
Louise and Joseph Simone have been a couple and a team since they opened their studio in 1975. Their commitment to photography and total dedication to the challenges of portraiture have led them to an extraordinary career culminating in a worldwide reputation for artistic and photographic excellence. They firmly believe that great portraits are not just the result of precise lighting techniques, meticulous use of the rules of composition and creative posing. At the heart of their philosophy is the warmth and respect that the Simones have for each and every person they photograph. “The passion we invest in our profession is reflected in each image. The subject who feels respected, loved and valued will disclose his or her true personality with complete authenticity,” Louise said.
Louise and Joseph have been awarded Master of Photography degrees in the United States, Canada and Quebec. Joseph has also earned the PPA Master Craftsman Degree. They have both been honored as Photographer of the Year in Canada and Quebec. They are part of the Eastman Kodak Pro Mentor team. Louise and Joseph have given over 145 lectures and seminars to professional photographic organizations in ten countries. Their work is represented in over 40 professional loan collections in the U.S.A. and Canada. They are recipients of multiple Kodak Gallery Awards.
Louise and Joseph Simone are headline speakers for PhotoWorld Asia 2016 to be held in Makati on January 28-February 2, 2016 at the Glorietta for the photography trade show and at the Asian Institute of Management for the international photographers conference.
