Théo Saffroy

 

PHOTOGRAPHER & FILM DIRECTOR

Theo is a photographer and director based in Paris, France. 
He works both for Advertising and for the Press. He is both an image lover and an adventurer and became a professional photographer after a 8-month-motorcycle road trip in South America.

His photographic writing is defined by a rather pictorial style, offbeat, and rich in colors. 

As a documentary photographer his approach is centered on the Human. He photographs the "real" to document isolated and singular lifestyles, exploring culture, folklor and sport. By telling these stories he hopes to propose a positive and inclusive look at our Society. During the last few years, his projects have taken him to different parts of the world like Kyrgyzstan, Iran, Mexico or the Emirates. 

His advertising work is inspired by his personal projects as Théo proposes his human-centered photographic approach to brands he works with.

Today, at 29, Théo lives between Paris and Marseille, works in France and all over the world.
