Jean Noir

"Don’t capture moments, create them."

Jean Noir was born in Germany close to Frankfurt/Main. In July 2012 he discovered the magic and world of capturing personalities & souls through photography. Creating moments and freezing them into still images became a passion for Jean, now leading him to travel across the globe attempting to encapsulate beauty. Jean´s work is focused on portrait and editorial photography working with agencies, but also delivering workshops to educate others about his unique way of working and demonstrate how to re-create Jean’s style and message in their work. Jean is globally recognised for intense and deep colours throughout his work and the emotional element to show the soul of the subject in the image. Since 2016 his home became the NOIRstudio, located between Darmstadt & Frankfurt (Urberach), fitted with an array of Rotolight Anovas, AEOS and NEO 2.
