Born and raised in a family of artists, Benjamin Decoin has always been surrounded by visual arts. He started his career in 2000, travelling (sailing!) the world and writing text for travel and cinema magazines.

He developed a love for photography and his passion for portraits and people made him soon became a renowned celebrity photographer. His ability to put people at ease and his pictures, recognizable for the story they tell, their bright and intense look, allow him to gain the trust of major celebrities.

Benjamin is currently based in Paris with his creative team where he can host full production projects and organise everything from pre- to post-production. While he travels all around the world for his clients and assignments, he tries to keep some time for his personal projects, mainly focused on the sea, on and under water. He collaborates with major European magazines and French luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior and department stores such as Le Printemps.

He's a proud member of the Foundation Photo4Food.
