Being A Movie Set Photographer: Alex Pixelle

iLHP is always on the look out to bring the best and exclusive content as you already know. We’ve interviewed lately the Zeiss managers at PhotoPlus Expo in New York. But our purpose is also to promote the work of great photographersamateurs and professionals in different fields like fashionmacrowildlife and architecture but this time is a little bit more exclusive and rare. iLHP met with Alex Pixelle, a professional photographer in the very exclusive industry of film making and TV shows! Her style is obviously outstanding. Alex was kind enough to make herself available in her very busy schedule and meet with us around a cup of coffee to talk about her photography world.

“To me photographing an actor/artist, is above all, bringing the best out of him/her and sublimate their charisma. The complete opposite of the craziness of the paparazzi. You have to respect them. It is pro to pro relationship, that is how they accept you.”

iLHP: Hi Alex, we’re very happy and honored to have you here at iLHP. Photography and videography (movies) are sometimes very close together, however this is the first time we interview a movie and TV set photographer. Can tell us more about you?

Alex: I’m 27 years old. I come from the center of France, the region of the castles (les chateaux de la Loire). I always wanted to be a photographer since I was a teenager, but people tried to discourage me, saying it was not a “real job”. I thought that you have to do what you like, what you are passionate about in life, to accomplish your dreams, so I thought I should work hard on this!

A Look Inside Paparazzi Photography

Paparazzi [noun] – a freelance photographer, especially one who takes candid pictures of celebrities for publication

We have all seen the cover of tabloid magazines plastered with famous celebrity faces on every newsstand.  Especially here in North America it is difficult to escape it when you are going about your daily chores waiting in line to check out at the local grocery store or drugstore.

I don’t think anyone would disagree that paparazzi photographers are the most hated among other photographers. On average, the paparazzi photogs that do this on a full-time basis make anywhere from $80,000 – $250,000. The really great stalkers, I mean veteran paparazzi photogs make on average $250,000 – $300,000 apparently. I guess the one’s that make the higher incomes can justify their behavior by the amount of money they receive in return for their actions.
