Pascal Casagrande

I define myself as an imaginer before being a photographer. Indeed, for me it is the work on the imagination that gives birth to images. When I was 16, I started to create fictions with my schoolmates. We made a slide show set in a cabaret in the middle of the war and I took a liking to it... I decided to train as an image artist at the Geneva Art School (ESAV), which gave me a broad perspective on all modes of visual expression, and then a little later in communication, at the Sawi (Bienne). After a first professional experience of 2 years at the TSR, I decided to start my own business at the age of 25 thanks to the support of a former teacher and friend Mirto Tanner. I made my small company grow with the joys and hazards of life for over 30 years.

In my fifties, I was led to explore the image beyond the finished product, as a process of care with Art Therapy at the Atelier Genève. Above all, I like to photograph people and give humanity to my services. I appreciate more than anything else to solve your communication issues by putting your ideas into images.

When I was 10 years old I received my first camera, a Kodak Starmite, it had a flash with single use bulbs and a 2 position diaphragm adjustment, it used a 4cmX4cm film format. I started taking pictures whenever I received a film and gave the film to the photographer to develop. Some years later I found in a book in the library the plans to build a pinhole camera with a chocolate box. The image appeared upside down on tracing paper when I put my head under a black cloth. It is at this moment that I approached the development and the printing by contact with the sun, because I obtained a negative during the shooting. Some time later I was given a 6 x 9 bellows camera with all the settings I could now do lots of testing. In college, I had the opportunity to take photography and lab courses. I then perfected my photo work with an acquaintance of my father who was a photographer. I continued my education as a self-taught person. During my studies in electronics, I realized small works in the photography in scientific environment. Thereafter in the professional framework, I took in charge photographic works which required the creation, the modification of devices to carry out photographs in a technical context. At each step it was new challenges to make these images. In parallel of my professional activities I had the opportunity to give courses as well of shooting as of laboratory. As soon as the first image processing software arrived, at the end of the 80's, Digital Darkroom and then Photoshop, I invested myself to master them and train users, photographers. In 91 I joined the art schools in Geneva for the introduction of computer graphics and the training of students and teachers. In this context, I actively participated in the introduction of the first digital cameras with their ecosystem. Digital photography had nothing to envy to film photography, constraints, much inferior results... but it was a new and very formative challenge, precursor of a radical change in technology.
Today my activity is essentially turned towards photography.

Je suis passionnée par la photographie depuis l’âge de 11 ans, j’ai commencé à réalisé des photos de plantes et d’animaux avec un vieil iPhone, puis j’ai un jour voulu avoir un appareil photo pour pouvoir faire de meilleures images. A partir de là. ma passion à évolué je me suis focalisé d’abord dans la photos animalières et de la nature, puis j’ai voulu partager par la suite mes images sur les réseaux sociaux. Les personnes aimaient beaucoup et j’ai voulu apprendre plus de choses pour m’améliorer et faire des photos plus professionnelles et de meilleure qualité et enfin réaliser des photos très créatives en ajoutant des décorations et étudier les différentes lumières. Ensuite, j’ai suivi avec la photo portrait des personnes que je connaissais et je les photographiais en extérieur dans la nature. Je me suis entrainée avec à communiquer avec et proposer des idées de poses et conseiller la personne de comment elle pouvait s’habiller pour le shooting.

C’est ainsi que j’ai voulu suivre cette voie et me professionnaliser sérieusement dans le domaine de la photographie et maintenant je suis apprentie chez Les Studios Casagrande. Je suis ravie de pouvoir évoluée dans le métier de spécialiste en Photomédias et se serait avec grand plaisir que je vous aide à réaliser vos envies, vos besoins et partager mes nouvelles idées.
