Meet the photographer Philippe Hugonnard

13. 03. 2024

Who is behind the photographs, which are bursting with colour and, thanks to their captivating composition, transport the viewer to places all over the world? Philippe Hugonnard is a photographer who has combined his two passions – photography and travel. He tells us his story in an exclusive interview.

How would you describe yourself in a few sentences?

As an artist, my profession involves capturing moments, emotions, and scenes through the lens of my camera. I am a visual creator, using light, composition, and my own artistic sensibility to craft images that tell stories, evoke emotions, and captivate the viewer.

 My passion for photography extends beyond just taking the shot because a significant part of my work is in post-production, where I utilize various digital editing software to refine and enhance your images, bringing to life a final artistic vision.


I am a visual storyteller, an explorer of the beauty and complexity of the world around me, capturing fleeting moments and transforming them into timeless works of art.


Going back to the very beginning, what has shaped your artistic style?

I have always loved traveling and discovering new cultures. Photography has always been a part of my life. These two passions have allowed me, throughout my travels, to create original and captivating collections.

What or who inspires you?

Each journey is an adventure through new landscapes, fascinating cultures, and unforgettable encounters. For me, the inspiration to take photographs during my travels lies in the magic of capturing the very essence of these ephemeral experiences.

Every destination offers an infinite palette of colors, textures, and unique scenes that beckon to be immortalized through my lens. Whether it’s the golden light of a sunset on a distant beach, the narrow and bustling alleys of a historic city, or the impressive architecture of megacities, each moment is an invitation to explore and capture the beauty of the world around me.

What does your creative process look like?

It all starts with an inspiration, an idea, or a theme that motivates you to create a collection. If my new collection revolves around the theme of travel, the first step is to plan the destination (flights, hotels, itineraries), and once there, take the time to explore each place with a keen and creative eye to find unique angles.

 Upon my return, the thousands of images are sorted and selected to fit the artistic vision of the collection. The final phase is the post-production part, where each image is retouched while ensuring to preserve the authenticity of the original photographs.


Your photographs can transport the viewer to places all over the world. What is your favorite place and why?

My favorite country is the United States. 

My collections on the United States are a celebration of the diversity, resilience, and spirit of innovation that characterize this extraordinary country. Through my images, I aim to share my fascination for this land of endless opportunities and inspire others to explore, discover, and appreciate the multitude of wonders that the United States has to offer.


I have a multitude of ideas to create new collections with an inexhaustible reservoir of creativity to explore.



Can you pick one design of yours that is your favorite?

It’s difficult to choose just one image from all the different collections I have. But if I had to pick just one currently, it would be from my latest collection, “California Dreaming.

Have you had a point in your career when you didn’t quite get something right?

Of course, yes, it’s entirely normal to encounter challenges when creating a collection and realize that the result doesn’t meet my expectations. It’s an integral part of the creative process. There are times when I start a collection, work on it for several days, and then realize that the outcome won’t be good, so I stop and start something else.

What is a career dream you want to achieve?

Open my own photo gallery in the United States, especially in Los Angeles.

What projects are you looking forward to in the near future and what can we look forward to from you?

I have lots of projects in mind, and especially new collections for you to discover. But for the moment, it’s confidential 😉
