Sylvain Garderes


I love stories. Great stories and everyday stories.

I started photography when I was 12. A friend gave me a camera because she thought I was "able". Then I shot stories, real or written.
I started my professionnal activity while I was finishing my studies in a great french Cinema School, a few years later I decided to make wedding photography and now it's my speciality.
In the last 6 years, I've done about 120 weddings photo reports (20 a year). Since 2013 I'm working with another French photograph, Damien Dohmen. The four eyes photo coverage is our speciality.

I love moment, and I love when I capture one.
I love instant and instinct.
I don't like talk about myself, my photographs are more talkative.

I'm french, working in Pau, Biarritz and worldwide.

I recently received a silver medal in the wedding category from the greatest french association of professionnal photographers (GNPP - Médailles de la Photographie Professionnelle Française 2014).

I'm 35, married, two daughters.
