Portrait, beauty and fashion photographer Pauline Darley couldn’t have had a more natural entry into the world of photography. Needing a creative outlet, she began shooting at 17. At first, it was friends, then friends of friends. She wasn’t planning on turning it into a career, but word spread.
Since then, the Paris-based photographer has become a leading name in fashion and advertising photography. Her bold, sometimes surreal, images caught the attention of some of the top brands and led to her working with Universal Music, Armani, and Sony Music. Her work has also been featured in Pose magazine, Elle, and Newsweek, just to name a few. And, she made the ARTPIL 30 Under 30 Women Photographers list.
We wanted to know what gear Pauline uses to bring her unique concepts to life, so we asked. Here, she shares what’s in her camera bag and explains how she uses each piece in her stunning beauty and fashion portraits.
