Shanghai Lifestyle Photographer – Philippe Roy

I love lifestyle photography assignments. Plain and simple. As a Shanghai lifestyle photographer I get to connect with a wide range of people and clients.

The range of clients I get to work with and the different types of assignments continuously amazes me. Shanghai Disney Resort, Philips Lighting, Philips Avent, METRO, Porsche motorvehicles, Shake bar, DBS Bank,… and a multitude of others. My team and I get to work with people of all walks of life, young and old, have fun, laugh, go crazy… and just have a plain good time to make nice images together.

Shanghai photographer with a studio

In Canada, I started my life as a photojournalist but upon arriving in China I migrated into commercial photography. And very happy I did so.

My photo studio in Shanghai is centrally located. I can use it for a number of shooting scenarios. I can shoot portrait sessions and still-life images, or from beauty campaigns to small room-sets. For larger projects requiring a very large studio, I have China photography studio partners and a well-established network that I can reach out to. It makes me flexible for any assignment you can throw at me.

Being a Shanghai photographer also allows me to cover a Asia as a territory for a number of clients. It is quite normal for me to fly to Korea, Singapore, India or even Australia for an assignment.

As a Canadian photographer based in Shanghai I can understand global positioning of top 500 companies and work within a local setting. I can provide you with advertising photography, lifestyle photography, hospitality photography, fashion photography, automotive photography, still-life photography, beauty photography and much more. Many of my clients appreciate that I can provide them with images with international standards while being made in China.

China photographer with a network

The China photography community is a tight knit community. So, over the years I have created trusted bonds with a number of suppliers that I come to rely upon for my client’s projects. I am able to expand from a single photographer shoot to a team of 60 different people on set. With my network I can manage and organize actors, grips, stylists and lighting technicians…

I am also the Shanghai photography partner at Kore Studios. This gives me the possibility to expand – when I need it – to being more than just a single photographer with a camera.
