LomoAmigo Jerome Tanon and His Monochromatic SuperSampler Shots

2

Jerome Tanon is a 25 year old Onboard magazine freelance staff photographer from France and he is one of our newest Amigos! Take a look at this black and white film photographs after the jump…

Who are you, where are you from?
Hello, my name is Jérôme Tanon, I’m 25 years old and I live in Annecy, France.

When have you started photographing? When it became a profession?
I started photography when I arrived in the alps at age 18, riding almost every day, shooting my friends at the snowpark, for fun. I don’t have any kind of education in photography. Season after season it became more serious, I discovered a true passion in taking photos, and slowly tried to turn it into a job. I had my first parutions in french magazines in 2007/2008, and then it went pretty fast. It is my only money-earning activity for one year now.

Do you have some riders with whom you mostly shoot?
Yeah, my buddies from back then, which some of them progressed on the riding side as well and still shoot with me: Victor Daviet, Ben TJ, Victor Delerue, Gerome Matthieu, Valérian Ducourtil… etc… and new friends like the Pirates, euro absinthe riders, Danny Larsen, Marco Feichtner, Tyler Chorlton, Fredi K, Jules Reymond, Matthieu Schaer, Teo Kontinen, Juuso Laivisto, Janne Lipsanen, Nils Arvidsson…

What else do you shoot beside snowboarding?
I don’t have time for anything else, I do a little street photography when the season is off, other than that… nothing really.

You shoot mostly on film? Why is that?
I started digi of course, and discovered the beauty of film two years ago. I loved it right away, it changed completely my perception of photography. I do so for many reasons: I love it’s grain in black&white, it’s millions of old cameras, all kind of films with weird colors, the randomness, the fact that you have to think before pressing the button… and all the creativity in it.

You have an unique style. Do you have any “philosophy” behind that, or does it just come out naturally like that?
I didn’t know that ! ah ah ! I don’t really have a philosophy, i’m just trying one by one all the different techniques possible, in a forever learning process. I try to let my mind go free and forget all the “rules” of snowboard photography, but it’s hard. I also like the “authenticity” that comes with film, for example I HATE to crop my photos, and almost NEVER do it. I’m a framing freak. I would say that besides personal works, my ideal is photo-journalism, to get as close as possible to the feelings, the actual emotion of the scene, but it’s really a dream ! It’s like a limit you can never reach.

Open mic?
First, a thousand thanks to all my family and friends, riders, filmers, video productions & magazines, for supporting me with trust. Thank you.

    Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.

    Janne Parviainen is a 35-year-old artist from Helsinki, Finland. He is both a painter and a photographer but sometimes, he swaps his painting tools for light and creates illuminated pieces of art. Abandoned places are his favorite places for shoots because, according to him, "there's so much lived life and stories in abandoned places, they are the lost diaries and photos turned to dust of lives that once bloomed."
