About Brigitte

 

brigitte jouxtel is a french photographer with a passion for photography who started Studio A  in the 80's in the then famous Holloway drive, in the of heart of the sunset strip west hollywood.  "I loved what i was doing the minute i was given a camera, I was lucky to be succesfull and lucky to be working with so many talented actors." 

My first photo was taken in my twenties with a Russian film camera given by my father...a few years later I came to Hollywood straight from France with a head full of dreams...

While searching for myself I worked as a costumiere then as a makeup artist..

I was unhappy, but my life changed when I discovered photography, good things started to happen...a Hollywood agent discovered my work and sent me one of his actor client; and more work followed... 

I was creating beauty with people's faces, eyes and emotions, I loved it instantly and became happy..... Working with actors is rewarding because they like exploring emotions Like i do....

I shot with 35 mm black & white film for over ten years with the same indestructible Nikon camera; before including color film; then moving on to digital.

-"In order to take a good photograph you have to become part of it, you have to adapt to the situation, be unobtrusive, and blend in until they Let the mask down...."'

 

 

 
I get the biggest chill when an actor locks his or her eyes into my camera transcending language, reaching out to the viewer director or casting person.
— thats when i know my job is done.
