Brigitte Jouxtel moved from France to Hollywood in the 80's with a camera and big dreams, she founded Studio A in the 80's on Holloway drive, heart of Sunset strip in West Hollywood. "I love photography, I am lucky to be successfull and lucky to work with talented actors and artists"
My first photo was taken in my early twenties with a very rudimentary Russian film camera given by my father...To me it was a treasure.
While searching for myself I worked as a costumiere then as a makeup artist..
I found myself 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...
..... Working from behind the lens while guiding someone in front of my camera exploring his or her emotions and creating beauty from within, watching him or her go through the process and let their eyes speak for themselves. I love that.
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...."'
