Welcome, I’m Gaston Lamaitre, a photographer and cinematographer based in the Netherlands near Amstardam. I have more than 5 years experience as a commercial and editorial photographer and 2 years as a cinematographer.

My passion is photographing people and telling stories. I mainly focus on Fashion and Beauty photography for brands and editorial publications.

My style can be described as Colorful, bold, clean and glamorous.

My vision of Fashion is that clothes are an expression of who the wearer is (or wants to be). That is why I photograph my subjects being confident/strong, comfortable and at ease. Fashion and beauty photography creates a fantasy/a story, but I also try to look at my subject as a portrait photographer, see what’s inside, and use a tiny bit of that to make the image more real. This of course also works well with celebrities.

This was one of the most fun shoots I did. It shows that photography is much more than pushing a camera button, and modelling is more than a pretty face. We were doing a commercial shoot with a headset of an Audio-brand. Only the headset came without batteries (yes: * not included) and we were not able to connect a music stream to it. So I told the models before te shoot that when they wore the headset they had to imagine the most beautiful music coming from it. And boy did they deliver! Can you guess some music tastes?
